5 years ago27 views

The 13-11 Milwaukee Bucks will be the road club as they square off with the 13-12 Boston Celtics in an NBA pro basketball game on Friday night. Tip off time from Boston is scheduled for 7:30PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by the NBA League Pass Channel.

The current betting odds in this game have the home team Boston Celtics favored by -5 points with an over under line of 192 points. When the odds came out in this game it was Boston a -5 ½ point favorite with the over under coming in at 191 ½ points. There has been a ½ point move on the underdog Bucks and a ½ point move under the total.

This will already be the fourth meeting this season between these two teams. Milwaukee has won and covered two of the three games. Trend: The under is 5-0 in their past five head to head meetings.

The Bucks are 7-5 straight up on the road. They have won five of their past seven games. They fall to Memphis on Wednesday 90-80 on the road as a +9 point underdog. Milwaukee had a bad shooting night making just 35% from the floor. Milwaukee sports two inefficient guard tandems that take a high volume of shots and shoot for a low percentage. The guard tandem really stunk up the arena against the good defensive club from Memphis as Brandon Jennings hits on 9 of 26 from the floor and Monta Ellis makes 1 of 14. Each guard averages 18 points a game and shoots for less than 40% from the field.

The Celtics broke their three game losing streak as they return home for a 103-91 home win against the Cleveland Cavaliers as a -9 point favorite. It was the first time in three games that the Celtics break 100 points. The Celtics were hot hitting on 59% from the floor. Boston was held to under 90 points in the three games leading up to their home date with Cleveland. The Celtics shoot for a high percentage this year with 47% which is fifth best in the NBA.
