Why Bet on the Boston Celtics?

Although Boston lost Game 3, they must feel good about where they are in the series. The Celtics had a huge chance to the tie game in regulation, but the third tip, the one from Al Horford, was still on his hand at the buzzer.

If not for the ball resting on his hand, the Cs would have tied the game. In any case, Milwauke bounced back from Game 1 to beat Giannis Antetokounmpo and his teammates in Game 2. Then in Game 3, Milwaukee almost pulled off the upset. Boston knows what’s at stake. They should be right there at the end of Game 4 again to grab a straight up victory.

Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?

The Milwaukee Bucks realize they almost blew the chance to go up 2 games to 1 on the rival Boston Celtics. The Bucks aren’t the type of team to get cocky going into Game 4. Knowing how difficult it was to win Game 3, Boston will make the necessary adjustments to ensure a Game 4 victory. One of those adjustments means driving into the lane more than they did in Game 3.

Boston shot 34 free throws, making 28 for 82%. The home team in Game 3 shot just 17 free throws, making 14. Often, it’s the home team that wins the free throw battle. But not in this case. Milwaukee must much more aggressive. If they are, they should win straight up and cover the spread.

Celtics vs. Bucks Expert Betting Prediction

There are things to like about both teams heading into this matchup. The key is which team’s defense breaks first. Boston held Milwaukee to just 40% from the floor in Game 3. The Bucks should have shot must better considering the third game happened on their court. The Bucks also shot just 26% from three. But although Milwaukee didn’t shoot well, neither did the Celtics.

Boston shot 37% from the floor and 27% from three. The Cs knew they were shooting terrible from the floor, which is why started to drive into the lane. We should see similar game on Monday night. But Boston’s defense won’t break first. The Celtics know what’s at stake and home court doesn’t much in this series. Expect the Cs to even things up with a dynamite win and cover.
