Milwaukee Bucks 's Latest Performance :
The Bucks are 7-0 and are off to their best start in franchise history, setting up an epic showdown against Boston on Thursday. Bledsoe will have plenty of motivation for this one because of his history with Terry Rozier. Bledsoe finished the game with 17 points shooting 7-for-12 from the floor. Antetokounmpo is still listed as questionable for the game against the Celtics because of the NBA concussion protocol. We will get to see more of Donte DiVincenzo, Tony Snell, and Ersan Ilyasova if Giannis doesn’t play. Thon Maker scored a season-high 11 points he is getting an opportunity to play with Giannis being out. The Bucks are striving under the new system that coach Budenholzer has conducted. The Bucks are shooting fewer mid-range jumpers and shooting more threes it fits into the modern day style of basketball and the reason that they are 7-0 right now.
Boston Celtics 's Latest Performance :
The Celtics are coming into this game riding a three-game winning streak, we all knew how good are the Celtics on paper it was just a matter of time that everyone would be on the same page. They will look to be the first team to hand the Bucks their first loss of the season. Kyrie Irving finally joined the party after struggling in his first few games of the season. He hit 10-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 31 points, five rebounds, five assists. He was a huge part of the Celtics 3rd quarter run as he scored 11 straight for the C’s. Kyrie needed a game like this to get him going offensively I expect him to keep it going against the Bucks at home. Jayson Tatum bounced back from his six points effort to score 16 points against the Pistons it was a relief for Tatum to see Kyrie have a good game it is just a matter of time that Hayward gets it going too. If this core gets it going consistently they are right with the Golden State Warriors.
How Milwaukee Bucks & Boston Celtics Matchup.
Vegas Odds, Offshore Odds, & Odds ATS:
Celtics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600.
Bucks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
Against The Spread Selection: Boston Celtics
My reason for the pick :
The Celtics will hand the Bucks their first loss of the season as they will snap the Bucks perfect seven-game start. The Bucks will be playing without their star player Giannis so I expect the Celtics wings to take advantage. Kyrie will have back-to-back great games as he is starting to find his groove offensively against the Bucks. It will be hard for the Bucks to keep up with the Celtics without their All-Star on the floor.
