The Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks collide at the Fiserv Forum on Thursday night.
The Boston Celtics have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their last 11 games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after routing the Bulls in a 117-94 road win last night. Jaylen Brown led the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Al Horford added 17 points with 10 rebounds on seven of seven shooting, while Jayson Tatum tallied 16 points with 10 rebounds and eight assists. As a team, the Celtics shot 48 percent from the field and 17 of 37 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Bulls right from the start and never looked in doubt after taking a 67-51 lead into halftime.
Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in fine form as they’ve won seven o their last 11 games and they will be eager to stay hot after blowing past the Bulls in a 127-106 road win on Tuesday. Brook Lopez led the team with 28 points, seven rebounds and three blocks, Khris Middleton added 19 points with five assists while Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied 18 points with nine rebounds and seven assists. As a team, the Bucks shot 52 percent from the field and 12 of 35 from the 3-point line, but this win was more about their defense as they took the early lead and never looked in trouble after holding the Bulls to just 20 points in the first quarter.
Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days’ rest, 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bucks are 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games against a team with a winning road record and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall.
Head to head, the over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings overall, the Celtics are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Milwaukee and the Celtics are 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings overall.
The Celtics are still missing Nik Stauskas and Robert Williams, while the Bucks have listed Grayson Allen as doubtful for this one due to left hip soreness. Both teams are coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum, but the Celtics will be playing this one on zero days’ rest after last night’s dominant win over the Bulls. You can make an argument for either side here, but the Celtics are 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings overall and I think they can pull off the upset in this spot.
