Boston Celtics Betting

The Boston Celtics are now the third-best team in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record at 43-21 and they are looking to come an inch closer to the second place to avoid a probable confrontation with the Philadelphia 7ers in the first round. This is a team that may have capitalized the most of the long break with Gordon Hayward getting more time to heal up. Jayson Tatum looks very solid in the scrimmages while Kemba Walker erased the doubts that he won’t be playing their first games inside “The Bubble”. Along with Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter, the Celtics are one team to look out for.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks need just a few more games to lock the top record in the NBA and they might as well work on it early on inside “The Bubble”. Big expectations for Giannis Antentokounmpo who is on pace to make a good run at another MVP title with 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists a game. This time around, they might be missing Eric Bledsoe but George Hill is a good starting point guard as well. Kris Middleton will be the team’s second-best scoring option with 21-points per game while Brook Lopez is a stretch-five that compliments well with “The Greek Freak” inside the court.
