After falling to Boston on the road back in mid-December 100-111, Milwaukee will have revenge on their minds at home, while we also could be seeing a preview of a potential first-round playoff matchup. With Boston dealing with a plethora of injuries, Milwaukee opened up as slight .5 point favorites while the line has creeped up in favor of Milwaukee to 3.5 points.
Props to head coach Brad Stevens’ system as even though they’ve been without the likes of Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart, they have won six straight while also going 7-3 in their last 10 contests. Even better for us bettors, they have gone 7-3 ATS in that time span.
In their most recent outing we saw Boston take down the top-seeded Toronto Raptors 110-99 where they shot 45.5% from the field while also shooting 41.2% from the three point line and only turned the ball over six times.
Youngsters Terry Rozier and Jayson Tatum have been carrying this injured Boston squad as they have averaged 19.8 PPG and 17.6 PPG in their last five contests.
In their last five contests, Boston is converting 46.6% of the shots, which is better than their season average of 45.04%. The defense has been playing great only giving up 96 PPG during that span.
Boston’s offense has been wishy-washy on the road ranking 21st in PPG, and 18th in FG%, but they have done well launching the deep-ball ranking 1st in 3PT%. Defensively, they have most efficient road defense in the league ranking 1st in PPG, 1st in FG%, 1st in 3PT% and 12th in RPG!
As the regular season winds down, Milwaukee has been in average form winning five of their last 10 contests, but on a brighter note they have gone 5-1 ATS in their last six contests. Milwaukee’s most recent outing resulted in a 125-128 overtime loss to Denver ending their four game road trip.
Denver was able to score 32 fourth quarter points to take the game into overtime where they would eventually take down Milwaukee. The Bucks shot 45% from the field and 36.4% from the three-point line while also only turning the ball over 9 times.
Super Star Giannis Antetokounmpo and All Star Eric Bledsoe have been carrying this Milwaukee team averaging 25.6 PPG and 25.4 PPG respectively in their last five contests.
Milwaukee has been stroking the ball recently converting 48.6% of their shots in their last five matchups, which is better than their season average of 47.9%. Even though the offense has been hot, the defense has been lax giving up 113 PPG during that span.
At home, Milwaukee’s offense has been mediocre ranking 16th in PPG, 3rd in FG% and 23rd in 3PT%. The defense has been worse ranking 19th in PPG, 21st in FG%, 12th in 3PT% and 15th in RPG.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction: Milwaukee snaps Boston’s six-game win streak
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Milwaukee -3.5
Boston has been playing well without their top players, but this is a dangerous Milwaukee squad that when they play defense they can hang with any team.
Milwaukee has the talent to overcome Boston’s efficient system, and with being the home team who has more on the line, I expect Milwaukee to cover the chalk.
