Road Teams Have Yet To Win in Celtics-Bucks Series

Home teams have won each of the first five games of the Milwaukee Bucks-Boston Celtics first-round series, and Bucks bettors will be hoping that trend continues when action shifts back to Wisconsin for Game 6 on Thursday. Is another OVER in store? The OVER is 19-3 in Milwaukee’s past 22 games.

MyBookie opened the Bucks as 4.5-point home favorites with a total of 200.

  • The Celtics are 0-5 SU in their last five games on the road.
  • The Celtics are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Bucks.
  • The Bucks are 5-2 SU in their last seven games after a loss.

The second-seeded Celtics grabbed a 3-2 series lead thanks to a 92-87 triumph in Game 5 on Tuesday, and Boston is only one win away from a second-round matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. Point guard Marcus Smart, who hadn’t played since March 11 due to a thumb injury, returned in the game and immediately benefited the defense. Without Smart, the C’s gave up an average of 110 points in losing games 3 and 4.

The Bucks easily eclipsed the 50 percent shooting mark in three straight games before stumbling to 36.8 percent in Game 5, as superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was limited to just 10 shot attempts. Milwaukee big man John Henson has missed the last three games and was listed as day to day as of this writing.

The Bucks have been struggling to cover the spread at home of late. Milwaukee is 4-13 ATS in its past 17 home games.
