Game: Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks Mar 19 2012 7:35PM
Prediction: Atlanta Hawks
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: The first stage of the roadtrip started good for Boston as it went 2-1 but it dropped the last two games at Sacramento and Denver and things will not be getting any easier. The Celtics have two more games on the highways after this as they look to improve their 7-13 record on the road. They have dropped nine of their last 12 games away from home. Boston is sitting in seventh place in the Eastern Conference and trails Atlanta by just two and a half games but it is just two and a half games out of eighth place as well. Atlanta won last night in Cleveland which was its second straight win following two straight losses and playing with no rest is far from bad for this team. The Hawks are 10-2 ATS this season when playing the second of a back-to-back set and that includes a perfect 5-0 ATS mark when going from the road to back home. They are also a perfect 6-0 ATS when the second game is at home overall. Atlanta is 13-6 at home this season including wins in three straight games. The Hawks have not been the best at covering at home this season but that is due to some pretty big lines and this price range is in perfect shape as they are 9-3 ATS when favorites of fewer than five points. Atlanta has covered four of its last five games and it is 10-2 ATS in its last 12 home games when on an 80 percent cover run. Meanwhile Boston is 0-7 ATS in its last seven road games after failing to cover the spread in two or more consecutive games this season. This is the first meeting this season and Atlanta has fared pretty well against the Celtics with outright wins in five of the last seven meetings. The Hawks have played the sixth toughest schedule in the NBA and while they have struggled against some of the top teams, they are 17-4 against teams ranked outside the top 16 and that is where Boston falls. The Celtics are 5-8 against the top 10 while going 3-11 ATS in their last 14 road games against teams with a home winning percentage of .600 or better. 10* (604) Atlanta Hawks
