Sharpshooting Celtics Are Becoming a Fantastic OVER Wager

After dropping the opener of their five-game homestand, the Boston Celtics have rebounded in a big way by beating Philadelphia and Phoenix while averaging 112 points per game in the process. The C’s will look to keep the momentum rolling against the Milwaukee Bucks in Beantown on Monday.

MyBookie opened the Bucks as 5.5-point road underdogs with a total of 204.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Bucks’ last five games.
  • The Bucks are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games after consecutive wins.
  • The favored team is 1-4 SU and ATS in the last five games in this matchup.

The Bucks are firing on all cylinders right now in the wake of wins in eight of their last 11 due in part to the efforts of Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak posted 37 points and 13 rebounds in Milwaukee’s 108-100 triumph over Boston at TD Garden in mid-October and had 28 and 10 in a home setback to the Celtics eight days later.

Antetokounmpo notched his 10th double-double of the season in Saturday’s 109-104 win over Sacramento and is second in the NBA in scoring (29.4 points per game), ninth in steals (1.8) and 15th in field-goal percentage (54.6).

Six Celtics players scored in double figures in Saturday’s 116-111 win over the Suns, as Al Horford handed out a career-high 16 assists while Boston improved to 10-2 SU at home in 2017-18. Kyrie Irving once again paced Boston with 19 points and was especially clutch down the stretch.

The Celtics never seem to have an issue lighting up scoreboards, and that’s translated to a litany of OVERs of late. In Boston’s last eight games, the OVER is 7-1.
