Bucks vs. Celtics

The Celtics will take on the Bucks after earning a Game 6 win, on the road. Boston has been shooting it from deep at a higher rate than Milwaukee and it’s shown.

Milwaukee is busy playing bully ball with Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s forcing his way inside every chance he gets. Antetokounmpo has been elite and continues to make a case for himself when it comes down to the best player in the league. However, his teammates just aren’t helping his case like Jayson Tatum’s teammates.

Antetokounmpo has had to do a whole lot on the floor with the absence of Khris Middleton due to injury. Jrue Holiday has been inconsistent but has made some really nice plays for the Bucks in the series. But other than Holiday, there’s too much inconsistency around Antetokounmpo.

Meanwhile, the Celtics continue to have other scorers around Tatum. Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown earned over 20 points in Game 6 and Al Horford added 30 points in a single game over the series.

This game comes down to shooting. If Boston can shoot at an elite level, at home, they’ll win this game. Milwaukee might get to the line more often but will likely also turn the ball over more frequently. The Celtics will also need to rebound on the defensive glass at a better rate. If they had been better on the glass earlier in this series, the Celtics wouldn’t be playing this game.

But at home, I’ll ride with the Celtics. There’s just more firepower with this team. Tatum has been electric but has other guys stepping up when he’s not. Antetokounmpo can’t say the same.

Bet: Celtics ML (-210 at DraftKings) 

Mavericks vs. Suns

This is for all the marbles. Is Devin Booker seriously better than Luka Doncic? Prove it to us tonight.

This series has been blowout central, with the home team earning massive, double-digit victories in almost every game. That bodes well for the Suns, who will get the home game tonight.

The Suns need to play better inside, earn more rebounds and simply turn the ball over fewer times. The Suns are getting in the most trouble when they turn the basketball over. At home. you’d like to think that turnovers will be minimized.

The Mavericks have had good defensive game plans against the Suns and the Suns know that if they can shut down Doncic in this game, they’ll be in great shape.

Doncic has scored 30 or more points in every home game in this series. He’s scored fewer than 30 points in every road game in this series. If Doncic is shut down tonight, the Suns will come out victorious.

Bet: Suns ML (-300 at DraftKings)

Parlay: (-104 at DraftKings)
