Milwaukee comes in with a 12-9 overall record and 9-10-2 ATS after a 109-104 home win over the Kings, its third win in a row. Boston is 20-4 overall and 18-5-1 ATS following a 116-111 home victory over the Suns. The first two meetings this season have been split 1-1 straight up and 1-1 ATS.

Bet on Bucks vs. Celtics

Milwaukee played well the last meeting in Boston back in October, upsetting the Celtics 108-100. And that was well before Bledsoe was in the fold. The Bucks are playing well and have a solid chance to improve their winning streak to four games here. We'll take the cushion of a five-point spread, but if you want to get risky feel free to take Giannis and the visitors on the moneyline.
