Atomic is looking at Trae Young to bounce back and cash us out in Game 2 of this NBA 1st round series.
Atomic's NBA Tuesday Best Bet: Hawks @ Celtics - 4/18
Game 2: Atlanta Hawks @ Boston Celtics
Going back to Trae in a good matchup for him once again we saw him shoot a horrid 5-18 last game & record 0 pts+ast in the fourth and STILL end up with 24 PA which he easily could have covered if he just was useful in the fourth as usual however that did not happen we went 0.5U so now upping it to a unit as we also have a lower line than last game & Trae should see positive regression.
Trae has went over this line in 79% of games playing more than 32 minutes which I am sure he will play tonight we just need to hope Atlanta keeps the game competitive which despite being down 30 at half last game they managed to do. I also expect Atlanta to adjust and as the losing team they will make more adjustments than Boston. Boston trusts their defense this is why they play 1 on 1 and let their defenders Smart & White stick their man alone. I expect Trae to be more aggressive & just hit some shots which will help with his confidence and make him want to stay aggressive it is hard to be aggressive when none of your shots are falling and you feel like you are just a detriment to the team at the moment which happened last game.
Boston allows the #6 most ppg to #1 options because of the single coverage defensive I previously mentioned he also had 36 & 48 pts+ast vs them in the regular season and he had 27 & 23 FGA which he was pacing for if he did anything in the 4Q believe he attempted one FGA and nothing else so we just need him to be a bit more efficient OR effective in the fourth which really is not asking for a ton especially after the adjustments I expect him specifically to make.
TRAE YOUNG OVER 32.5 PTS+AST @ -120
