Get ready for an intense Eastern Conference Matchup

Bring out your popcorn and get ready for the Buck’s first true test in the playoffs this year when they battle the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Both teams are coming off a sweep in their previous series, so we know neither team is going to make it easier for their rivals.

Giannis is eager to prove himself and to confirm that it wasn’t a fluke that they ended up with the league’s best record. Whereas Boston is finding their mojo at the perfect moment to help them live up to expectations put on them at the beginning of the season.

Bucks looking for revenge from last season’s elimination

Last season, the Celtics eliminated the Bucks from the playoffs in a thrilling seven games. So, Giannis will be looking for revenge with a much better stacked team (and a new head coach) this time around. However, the Celtics upgraded themselves by adding Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, so expect both teams to be at their best. Plus, don’t forget about the Eric Bledsoe and Terry Rozier rivalry that developed last year… that will be fun to watch.

The series kicks off in Milwaukee since they have home court advantage throughout the NBA playoffs. Besides that, Bucks won the regular season series (2-1) against the Celtics, which will give them confidence throughout the series.

Against the Spread

If you are looking to bet on the Celtics this series, they have covered the spread in their last 6 games including playoffs and regular season. The Bucks have covered their spread their last 4 games, all against Orlando however. Throughout the whole season and playoffs, the Celtics have covered 50% of their games while the Bucks have covered 62.2%.
