Celtics-Bucks Series Has Been a Boon for OVER Bettors

While Milwaukee Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe claims he doesn’t know who Terry Rozier is, the rest of the NBA is well aware of Rozier’s dominance over the ex-Phoenix Sun thus far in the first-round series. The Celtics, who own a 2-0 series lead, have been on cruise control even without superstar Kyrie Irving and aim for their third straight win in Game 3 in Wisconsin. With a closing total of 203 or more, the Bucks have gone OVER in 15 of their last 17 games.

MyBookie opened the Celtics as 6-point road underdogs with a total of 203.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in the Celtics’ last six games (avg combined score: 216.67).
  • The Celtics are 1-9 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in the playoffs as underdog.
  • The Bucks are 2-7 SU and ATS in their last nine games in the playoffs at home.

Rozier torched the Bucks for 23 points in each of the first two games and has yet to commit a turnover. On the other hand, Bledsoe is averaging just 10.5 points on 9-of-25 shooting while making three turnovers per game. Second-year shooting guard Jaylen Brown made five three-pointers while scoring 30 points in Game 2 and is averaging 25 in the series. The biggest edge has been on the sidelines, as the well-respected Brad Stevens has coached circles around Bucks interim coach Joe Prunty.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (32.5 points, 11 rebounds, 7.5 assists) and Khris Middleton (28 points, six rebounds) have been spectacular in the series, but they haven’t received much help from their teammates. Backup power forward Jabari Parker has just two points on 1-of-7 shooting through two games, while second-year guard Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 13 points in that span.

Thinking of betting the Bucks tonight? Consider this: Milwaukee is 1-11 ATS in its past 12 as a home fave.
