Incredible shrinking odds

According to some of the best places to bet on the NBA, the point spread on the matchups between these two teams keeps shrinking.  The Celtics lost by 2 points in the last game and depending on what spread you bet on, it was close. For Game 4, the sportsbooks are assuming it will be even closer as they have the Bucks as a -1 favorite to win the game. The series line is Bucks -170 to win and advance.

Numbers don’t lie

Looking back at Game 3 there were plenty of things to be concerned about. The Bucks were unable to keep a big lead at home, which is concerning. However, the poor performance of Jayson Tatum for Boston is downright alarming. Corrections will be made by both teams. We have seen it before. Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 62 percent in game three after being held to 38 percent in the first two games of the series. The Celtics have adjusted defensive pressure in every game. So what happens in game 4?

Celtics vs Bucks prediction and pick for Game 4

First, I would bet the Celtics to win this series at +140. I already bet the Bucks to win the series at -110, which provides a nice win/win scenario at this price. But for game 4, it is time to bet the Celtics to win this game. The Celtics are 16-5-1 ATS in the last 22 road games and 5-0-1 ATS as a road dog. Milwaukee is inconsistent on offense and 1-1-8 ATS in the last ten meetings. The Celtics win an important game and tie up the series.

Celtics vs Bucks picks against the spread

The NBA season is back! The league tipped off with the best teams in the west with the Clippers and the Lakers. On Friday night the schedule gets bigger and the focus turns to the best teams in the East which is why we decided to make our Celtics vs Bucks picks against the spread.

Buying the Bucks

The Bucks are the best team in the Eastern Conference. They are talented, hungry and have a NBA MVP in Giannis Antetokounmpo. Because of the talent on this team, the Bucks opened up as (-5) point favorites. That number has dipped slightly as some sportsbooks have the line at (-4.5) as we approach tip-off.

Celtics bandwagon is booming

Everywhere you look the Celtics are being picked as the “surprise” team to go to the NBA finals. Jason Tatum as emerged as a superstar and they have one of the best young coaches in the league in Brad Stevens. This is a deep and talented team, but it is yet to be seen if they are ready to take down Giannis and the Bucks.

Inside the numbers

The public is buying in on the Bucks with over 60% of the wagers on Milwaukee. Although this game is on a neutral court the Celtics have covered 11 of the last 16 games on the road against Milwaukee. The Celtics are deep and that gives them an edge. They do not have an answer for Giannis and instead they will rotate several players to try and limit his scoring output.

Celtics vs Bucks picks against the spread

The depth from the Celtics is important. This makes the difference in the game and in the limited season. They excel as a team, listen to coaching and work with one another. The Bucks have talent but are inconsistent in several areas. This game may not make the season, but for tonight the Celtics are the better team.
