Khris Milldleton led a balanced Milwaukee scoring effort with 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting including 3-of-5 from 3-point range to go with eight rebounds and two assists.

Celtics dominate Knicks
Boston cruised to a 118-95 win Saturday night at New York to move to 2-1 overall and 1-1 on the road. Kemba Walker led the Celtics with 32 points on 11-of-17 shooting including 7-of-12 from 3-point range plus 3-of-4 at the free throw line. He also accounted for five rebounds, five assists and two steals. Jaylen Brown recorded 19 points, four boards and two assists. Jayson Tatum tallied 15 points, nine caroms and four steals.

NBA Betting Trends
The Bucks are 19-8 ATS in their last 27 road games. Milwaukee is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 Wednesday games.
The under is 4-1 in the last five Celtics games overall. The over is 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings in Boston.
Not only do the Bucks typically play better on the road than a lot of NBA teams, they also play a lot of high-scoring games in Boston throughout the years. With the Milwaukee offense clicking right now and having a plethora of options to balance things out, I like the over tonight. Boston is still very good defensively, but it will have to keep up on the offensive end as stopping the Bucks isn't exactly easy. Look for a high-scoring affair that stays close throughout, so if there is overtime even better for over bettors.
