Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

The Celtics needed overtime to preserve their unbeaten run at home last night, as they beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 127-100 at TD Garden. The duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown delivered 45 and 35 points respectively, despite shooting just 43% as a team the Celtics were able to win their 18th straight home game of the season. Things get a little bit trickier tonight as they head to Milwaukee on a 2nd leg of a back-to-back. In this scenario the Cs are an impressive 5-1 this season, but none of the teams they beat during that stretch are as good as the Bucks. They do have a really solid head-to-head record vs Milwaukee though, winning 5 of the last 6 meetings and covering the spread in 5 of those games. It gets even better in road games at Fiserv Forum – the Celtics have successfully covered the spread in 9 straight visits.

Milwaukee needs a big win here. This team has been under the microscope all season long, ever since they made the big trade to acquire Damian Lillard last summer. As crazy as it may sound for a team that ranks 2nd in the Conference, things haven’t gone according to plan after 37 games played. The team has no real identity compared to last year, opponents are having their way against them on the defensive end and everyone is pointing at head coach Adrian Griffin. With 4 really tough games coming up, I wouldn’t be surprised if a poor run in the next 10 or so days seals his faith. It’s not been all bad for the Bucks though, they are still 16-4 SU in 20 home games this season, they’ve also won 14 of 20 games vs Eastern Conference opponents.

Milwaukee Bucks Point Spread

Milwaukee Bucks +6 is available at time of publishing. Playable at that number.

Playing overtime last night didn’t do the Celtics any favors ahead of this game, they could struggle to keep up with the fast paced Bucks here. Kristaps Porzingis is also a game-time decision with a knee problem, plus there’s a chance either Tatum or Brown skip this game to get rest. So despite the Bucks struggles recently, I think this could be a turning point in their season so I will go ahead and back Milwaukee to cover the spread.

Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Total Points: Over 240.5

Over 240.5 Total Points is available at time of publishing. Playable at that number.

It all comes down to scoring points in this game, if you are the Milwaukee Bucks. Boston’s fatigue levels will be high, so I doubt they’ll put up much resistance on the defensive end. Milwaukee ranks 4th in pace this season, plus 3rd in offensive efficiency scoring 120.2 points per 100 possessions. The Celtics are even better at 120.9 points, but they prefer to keep the tempo of the game under control on most nights. Traditionally, games between these two teams tend to go over the total quite often with 13 of the last 20 cashing on that bet. The 3 most recent games have seen an average of 243.3 points per game, with the O/U numbers going 2-1 during that stretch. With the Bucks going over in 13 of 20 home games and the Celtics doing so in 11 of 19 road games, I think the best bet for this game is to back the points.
