Boston Celtics @ Atlanta Hawks – Saturday January 5, 2013 7:00PM EST

The online sports book experts keep waiting for the Boston Celtics to turn on the burners and move up in the Eastern Conference standings, but so far it does not look like it is going to happen before the All-Star break. Nobody in Boston is panicking yet because this is a veteran team that has been in worst situations in the past, but there has to be a sense of urgency at some point. The Celtics waited until late last season to make its playoff run, and it looks like fans will have to be patient again this season.

The Atlanta Hawks are not waiting for an invitation to start winning games. The Hawks came into the week with a 20-10 record, and the sports betting experts are kind of surprised at Atlanta’s success this season. The Hawks seem almost stronger since it traded away Joe Johnson in the offseason. The Hawks have put together a road record of 9-5, and it looks like Atlanta is just as comfortable on the road as it is at home. This may not be a good game for the Celtics to start and show its sense of urgency. Especially with the Hawks playing so well as of late.

Why the Celtics Will Win

The Boston Celtics is still the veteran team that made it all the way to the Eastern Conference finals last season. Many people thought that the Celtics were the lucky recipients of Chicago’s injury misfortunes, but the Celtics were a formidable team last season. The online casino players are not trying to decide if the Celtics have the energy to put together another late season run and repeat its success of last year. To this point, Boston has not shown that it can repeat the run that it had last year.

Why the Hawks Will Win

The transition that the Atlanta Hawks has gone through is not unusual. When a team gets rid of a superstar, it often discovers that the players left behind play better as a team than they did when they had to concern themselves with getting the ball to the superstar. Without the disruption of Johnson around anymore, the Atlanta Hawks is showing that it is a solid unit that can play strong defense as well as dynamic offense for an entire game.

The Bottom Line

This just does not look like the moment that the Celtics are ready to grab and run with. Boston is either waiting to make its run later in the season, or it is just not capable of another playoff run. The Hawks had a lot to prove when the season started and now it looks like Atlanta wants to establish itself as a playoff team early and then stay in the running for the entire season.

Pick: Atlanta Hawks
