Bet on Celtics vs. Bucks

Boston would love to get revenge on Giannis and the Bucks after the loss out East, but it won't be an easy task on national television. The Greek Freak is playing arguably the best basketball of anyone in the NBA right now, putting Milwaukee squarely on his shoulders. Expect another strong show from him and for the Bucks to cover the spread on their home floor.
