Bucks @ Celtics tips, picks and prop bets: Hosts to prevail in titanic tussle at TD Garden

The Milwaukee Bucks (10-4) visit TD Garden to face a Boston Celtics side (11-3) looking to bounce back from an overtime defeat in Charlotte.

The Celtics will be a wounded animal when they look to bounce back from a rare defeat when they host the Bucks on Wednesday (0030 GMT Thurs).

Bucks @ Celtics game pick

Boston are looking to bounce back from a rare defeat when they face the Bucks on hump day, with both teams boasting a winning record above 60%.

Jayson Tatum logged 44 minutes and scored 45 points in the loss.

Interestingly, the Celtics are 21-16ATS in their last 27 games against a team winning at least 60% of games.

Also, they’re a strong 44-31ATS after a loss dating back to 2021, while the Bucks are faltering in the role of underdog, going 15-36ATS across several seasons.

It’s worth noting that teams, even rested ones, don’t fare too well on the back of an overtime loss.

But in Boston’s case we have a team that may have been overlooking lowly Charlotte with a view to this marquee matchup and the majority of starters played close to their regular minutes.

We can also see they’ve bounced back well in this exact scenario, going 7-0 and winning by an average of 13 points when rested and playing at home on the back of a road loss.

The Bucks have scored 130+ in three consecutive games and while they are an elite offence, their road defence isn’t the best.

Giannis Antetokounmpo stung the Wizards with 42 points, who may not be 100% based on reports, scored 22.

It’s consistently shown against the Celtics that these teams are on different levels when it comes to defence. Boston are on an 8-2ATS run against Milwaukee.

They’ve outscored them 114-103 on average across those 10 games, beating them by 20+ in three of four meetings as the home team.

Bet: Boston Celtics -5
