Bookie vs. Bettor: Bucks vs. Celtics

Written by:
Published on:

The Bucks vs. Celtics Game 2 NBA Playoffs line was coming in at Boston -2.   The NBA Betting Power Ratings suggest a line of -6 but this does not take into account the recent injury woes of the Celtics. 

Kyrie Irving is done for the season. His loss is being valued at two points.  The team is dealing with a rash of other injuries as well Including Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart and rookie Daniel Theis.

While Boston has won seven of the last ten meetings between these two teams, the Bucks have played relatively close of late.  Boston had to win in overtime for Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs. 

Action was balanced at most books. 

We will not be offering a play on this game Tuesday night. Our current record with NBA picks is 7-1.
