Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics Overview

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks come in flying high off what could be regarded as the win of the season so far when they knocked off the undefeated Toronto Raptors at home on Tuesday night. As a two-point underdog, the Deers would gallop past the Raps in route to a 124-109 win. The Bucks have also been a cash cow against the spread as they are 5-0-1 in their last six contests overall. The Bucks are the best offensive rebounding team averaging 55 boards per game.

Boston Celtics

After losing a shocker to the Orlando Magic on their own floor on the 22nd of October, the Celtics have since won three in a row two of which came most recently against the Bucks’ divisional rival the Detroit Pistons. Despite Milwaukee boding the high-powered offense averaging 120 points per game (4th in the NBA), the Celtics still remain a stalwart on the defensive side of things once again sporting the best scoring defense in the league at 97.6 points per game. Opponents also only shoot 41% from the floor against the Celtics (2nd in the NBA).

Reasons To Back Boston

The Celtics are known for a robust home court advantage, and Beantown will assuredly be rocking in what will be an early season game of consequence. Milwaukee has only played two road games this season, one of which was won by a mere point against the Charlotte Hornets. Needless to say, the Celtics are a step up and will undoubtedly be Milwaukee’s toughest road test season-to-date.

Reasons To Avoid Milwaukee

Milwaukee will inflict a premium on takers here as they are bound to be overvalued no matter how they are approached in this market. This team has been a hot streak against the spread which means they are susceptible to a market correction now with each cover they foster. Situationally, this seems like a spot where the Bucks can undergo such an event against a talented basketball team looking to make a case as to why they are the team to beat in the East.

Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics Prediction 11/01/2018

Boston's defense is insufferable, and it will be the difference maker in this contest. There is a lot of hype and pandemonium surrounding this Bucks team in how they have started off, but the Celtics will only use that as bulletin board material to re-assert themselves as the top team in the conference. With motivation considered, all the chalk is asked to do here is win by a basket. True value. Celtics win big.
