Will over finally cool in Boston games?
The Celtics have been on an 'over' run for bettors of late but that could change tonight when they host the Bucks at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the total for tonight's game is currently sitting at 216.5 points, up from the opening number of 215. Boston is also an 8-point favorite after the side opened at Milwaukee +8.5. (Track odds for all of tonight's NBA games.)
The over has cashed in six-straight Celtics games but the Bucks should force that trend come to a scretching halt tonight. The under has hit in eight of Milwaukee's last 11 road games and is 5-2 in the Bucks' last seven games overall. The under is also an eye-popping 10-1 in the Bucks' last 11 games coming off a win and is 6-1 in their last seven contests after they scored 100 points in their previous game.
You would think that more rest would mean more points but that's not the case for Boston. The under is 8-3 in the Celtics' last 11 games when they're playing on two days of rest and is also 13-4 in their last 17 games versus the Central Division.
