Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The Bucks are 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games in Boston, while the underdog is 20-8-1 against the number in the last 29 meetings between these two teams and the road squad has covered in seven of the last nine meetings. The Bucks are also 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games when playing on zero rest and have covered in six of their last eight conference games as well. The Celtics, meanwhile, are 5-16 at the betting window in their last 21 games playing on two days of rest and have failed to cover in four of their last five games coming off a win. The Celtics should keep rolling, but 8 feels high.
