The Boston Celtics have thrived in the absence of Rajon Rondo late this season, suggesting that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce aren’t quite finished being dominant players after all. Can they continue to beat the NBA odds this Friday against the Atlanta Hawks?
Having met twice in the past five offseasons, including as recently as last spring, the two clubs are about as familiar with each other as they’d like to be. That means when they square off this week there will be no shortage of high-quality, high-motivation basketball.
Given that the C’s hold 30/1 odds of winning the NBA championship and the Hawks follow suit at 75/1, we’re going to go out on a limb and say this is one the NBA betting community will want to tune in to.
