After Failing Already, Can Boston Slow Down the Red-Hot Greek Freak?

The Milwaukee Bucks have proved to the Eastern Conference they’re serious contenders so far, and the upstart Bucks will look to knock off the Boston Celtics for the second time in a week when the clubs collide at the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center tonight.

Xbet opened the Celtics as 4-point road underdogs with a total of 206.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Celtics’ last 10 games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Bucks’ last eight games as favorite.

If Boston wants to slow down the red-hot Bucks, they’ll need to figure out a way to stop MVP favorite Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak, who’s averaging 36.8 points on 65.9 percent shooting through four games, collected 37 points on 13-of-22 shooting, 13 rebounds, three assists and three steals in the Bucks’ 108-100 win in the first meeting between the clubs this year.

In the wake of the gruesome injury to Gordon Hayward, young guns Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are being leaned on heavily to carry the load and both have answered the call so far. The pair combined for 45 points on 18-of-31 shooting in Tuesday’s 110-89 victory over the New York Knicks.

In Boston’s only trip to Milwaukee last season, the Celtics escaped with a 112-108 overtime win on January 28. Overall, the visiting team is 9-3 ATS in the previous 12 matchups between the Bucks and Celtics.
