Is Another OVER in Store in Bucks-Celtics?

The Boston Celtics knew they’d need to get contributions throughout the roster without the services of Kyrie Irving in the postseason, and that’s exactly what happened in their 113-107 Game 1 overtime win Sunday over the Milwaukee Bucks. Game 2 is set for tonight at TD Garden. Game 1 went OVER the total by 20 points, which continued the OVER trend when these teams get together in Boston. In the Bucks’ last 11 trips to Beantown, the OVER is 9-2.

Xbet opened the Celtics as 2.5-point home favorites with a total of 197.5.

  • The Bucks are 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in their last four games against the Celtics.
  • The Celtics are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games with one day off between games.
  • The Bucks are 7-2 SU in their last nine games after consecutive losses.

Terry Rozier (23 points), Jaylen Brown (20) and Jayson Tatum (19) combined to score 62 points in the series opener. Rozier, who has started only 16 regular-season games over his three NBA campaigns, hit four three-pointers in the win. Brown logged 46 minutes and will be heavily relied upon going forward by Brad Stevens.

Khris Middleton hit a long three-pointer to send the game to overtime in the final second of the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough for the young Bucks. Eric Bledsoe (nine points on 4-of-12 shooting) had an off night and committed five turnovers in the process.

The Celtics are on a nice little OVER streak of their own. In Boston’s past five games, the OVER is 5-0 with an average combined score of 215.
