NBA Online Betting Odds:
The Celtics enter tonight’s Eastern Conference pairing sporting a 37-21 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Atlantic. And in the conference, Boston currently ranks 4th overall. One thing holding Boston back this season has been injuries. This is pretty simple to demonstrate, seeing as how the Celtics are dealing with injuries tonight. That is despite coming off an All-Star break. Ultimately this forces tonight’s NBA online betting odds to peg Boston as an underdog on the road against the top dog in the conference. However, Boston is 5-5 in their last 10 versus Milwaukee. With that in mind, it’s clear that betting on the underdog wouldn’t be that misguided this evening.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (23.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 6.9 apg), Jayson Tatum (16.5 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.9 apg), and Marcus Morris (14.5 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 1.4 apg).
The Bucks leap into this evening’s contest sporting a 43-14 record that pegs them as the best team in the Eastern Conference. Not only that, it pegs them as the winningest team in the NBA. Albeit the Golden State Warriors aren’t too far behind Milwaukee with their 41-16 record. Although Milwaukee won’t win anything necessarily by being the winningest team in the league, they’ll still want to prove their dominance against Boston this evening. Looking over the number however, it’s clear that Milwaukee has a substantial advantage here. After all, they rank 2nd in the NBA in scoring and 8th in points allowed. Comparatively, Boston ranks 12th in scoring and 5th in points allowed.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.2 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 6.0 apg), Khris Middleton (17.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 4.2 apg), and Eric Bledsoe (15.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 5.4 apg).
