Bucks are the Hottest OVER Bet in the NBA

Bucks vs Celtics Betting Odds April 15

The Boston Celtics were dealt a massive blow when it was announced that star point guard Kyrie Irving will miss the playoffs due to a knee injury, but the C’s are forced to move forward while occupying the second seed in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics kick things off on Sunday when they host the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the first-round series. The OVER is 8-2 in the Bucks’ last 10 trips to TD Garden.

MyBookie opened the Celtics as 4-point home favorites with a total of 201.5.

  • The Celtics are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games as the favorite.
  • The Bucks are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as road underdogs.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Celtics' last seven games in the playoffs at home.

The teams split the season series at two games apiece, with both winning once at home and on the road. The Celtics ended the year by going 27-14 SU on home court. The C’s allowed only 100.4 points per game this year – the third-best mark in the NBA. On the season, Boston went 24-14 ATS vs teams with winning records.

While the Celtics performed well at home, it was the opposite story for Milwaukee on the road. The Bucks ended the campaign with a 19-22 SU record away from Wisconsin, and those 19 road wins are the fourth-fewest in the Association. The Bucks stumbled down the stretch by going 12-14 SU in their final 26 games.
