Game: Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks Mar 19 2012 7:35PM
Prediction: Atlanta Hawks
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: Play on Atlanta at 7:35 ET. This is a clear fade on an old Boston team that is off back to back losses and playing on the road for the sixth time in nine days. It's also their third game in four nights. Friday was a horrible 120-95 setback in Sacramento while Saturday saw the Celtics take a 98-91 loss in Denver. Now they head back East to face a Hawks team that is coming off back to back easy victories over Washington and Cleveland, the latter coming yday afternoon. Boston has been a very poor road team this year, losing 13 of 20 overall and averaging less than 90 PPG. They are 2-11 ATS L13 road games overall and they are not getting nearly enough help from the oddsmakers here. Playing on back to back days hasn't bothered this Atlanta team at all this season, going 9-2 ATS overall. They are 8-2 ATS overall in March and right now are simply a much better team than the Celtics. The line does not reflect that. Atlanta is our 15* East Conf Game of the Week.
