Celtics v Bucks Game 2 Betting Preview Still Favors Boston

Both their offense and defense failed Boston on Sunday as the Bucks too Game 1. The Celtics failed to make their shots count, as if Giannis' triple-double wasn't enough for them. Jrue Holiday and Bobby Portis most likely gave Tatum and co. some bad dreams too. If Milwaukee goes up 2-0 on Tuesday night, things might get ugly for their opponents. Check out our betting preview for Game 2 of Celtics v Bucks.

Bucks v Celtics Game 3 predictions

Milwaukee entered Boston as the underdogs but walked away victories in Game 1. The majority of people and odds were both on the side of the Celtics. That suffocating Celtics defense could not do enough to hold Giannis and Jrue Holiday, who were the stars of the first game. Milwaukee’s offense outscored Boston in three quarters and the team was incredibly efficient on the fast break. Antetokounmpo had a 24-13-12 triple-double and Holiday went for 25 points and 10 boards. Bobby Portis also maintained his important role from the previous series as he recorded 15 points and 11 rebounds. The Celtics were held under 90 points, the most since December. Furthermore, the team as a whole shot only 33.3% from the field and was also outrebounded by Milwaukee. So let’s see the betting preview for the Celtics v Bucks Game 2.

Boston’s squad remains to be at full strength as all players are healthy. Marcus Smart left the court in the first half due to a shoulder hit and a right quad bruise. However, he came back for the second half and is not on the Celtics’ injury. The same goes for Williams III, who left similarly but returned to the game anyway. As for Milwaukee, Middleton remains out indefinitely for the series and there haven’t been any positive updates on Hill’s injury either. Despite their loss on Sunday, the Celtics v Bucks Game 2 betting preview still favors Boston over Milwaukee. It’s highly unlikely that the Celtics will shoot so poorly two games in a row, on their home court nevertheless. Game 2 will most likely be much closer. In any case, if the Bucks take this one too, the outcome of the series might be sealed.
