NBA Jock MKT Pick ‘Em – April 25th – Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics

Clint Capela Over 0.5 Steals

The Hawks’ starting center has been a force to be reckoned with on the defensive end of the court in this series, and tonight should be no different. Capela has recorded at least one steal in every game so far this series, with a total of 6 steals over the 4 games. As the Hawks deal with a shorthanded lineup due to Murray’s suspension, Capela’s role on defense becomes even more crucial. He will be tasked with guarding the paint and disrupting Boston’s offense to the best of his abilities.

Against a Celtics team that has struggled with turnovers at times this season, Capela should have plenty of opportunities to grab a steal tonight. His length and athleticism make him a threat to disrupt passing lanes and snatch the ball away from Boston’s ball-handlers. With the over/under line set at just 0.5 steals for Capela, taking the over is a smart play.

Capela has hit the over in every game so far this series, and with the Hawks needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, he should be playing with extra intensity on the defensive end. Bet on Capela to record at least one steal tonight against the Celtics and let’s cash this play.

Jayson Tatum Over 3.5 3-Pointers

Expect Jayson Tatum to send the Hawks packing tonight and crushing the 3.5 three pointers made line tonight. With Hawks guard Dejounte Murray suspended one game for making contact with an official, the shorthanded underdogs will have one less starter and prominent defender to attempt to slow Tatum down tonight. Tatum has scored at least 4 three pointers in each of his last 3 games and is shooting the long ball at 40% this postseason, up from his 35% season average. The Celtics star is shooting 33% from deep this season against the Hawks and a whopping 40% in his last 10 games.

The Hawks will likely have trouble keeping up with Tatum’s scoring from long range as they allow an average of 13.1 three-pointers per game, the fifth-most in the league. This could be a huge opportunity for Tatum to shine and rack up some serious points from beyond the arc. Tatum has attempted 11 and 13 3-point attempts in the Celtics last 2 games so when looking for a profitable player prop bet for tonight’s game, take the over on Tatum’s 3.5 three-pointers. With his hot hand and the Hawks’ defensive struggles, it’s a great play tonight and Tatum and the Celtics will want to end this series tonight so they can rest up for the next round.

Tatum and the over 3.5 3-Pointers tonight is our play. Let’s hammer this line.
