We have expert NBA picks for the Milwaukee Bucks-Boston Celtics game, which is a mouthwatering clash between the Eastern Conference heavyweights.
The Celtics have yet to lose at home in five games, but after losing to Charlotte, there are concerns.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks are red hot, and ready to win again on the road.
Five on the Trot
The Bucks have galloped to a 10-4 record following five consecutive wins, with three coming on the road.
They defeated the Raptors, Hornets and Wizards on the road, but those clubs don’t resemble the Celtics.
No team has beaten Boston at TD Garden, but the Bucks are built to beat the best teams in the NBA, especially with the Greek Freak playing at a high level.
Antetokounmpo averages 30.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, which is why NBA betting markets give the Bucks so much respect.
They also have Damian Lillard, who is getting better with every game for the Bucks. Following his awesome debut, he went off the boil a touch. However, he was always going to need time.
If Lillard and Antetokounmpo keep playing well, the value with the sportsbook could be too good to turn down.
Celtics Leading the Way
The Celtics might be coming off a tough loss to the Hornets, but are still one of the best teams in the NBA at 11-3.
Jayson Tatum had 31 points at halftime and 45 in total, but missed a free throw with five seconds left which would have tied the game.
It was a crucial miss and as we expected against the Hornets, they were complacent after going on a winning streak.
“We have to regroup,” Tatum told the media. “We had six wins in a row and it’s easy to get complacent and we paid for it tonight.”

Our best NBA player props for Nov. 22 include Tatum to have another big game. He could easily score over 30 points against the Bucks, even in a losing effort.
He would love a little more help from Jaylen Brown, who is playing well, but continues to struggle with turnovers.
However, the Celtics have only three losses on their record, so it’s tough to find holes. They are 6-6-2 against the spread when betting online, so despite having 11 wins, they’re not as good at covering the number.

Worth Betting ATS?
Anytime bettors get a positive line with the Bucks is a good deal. They might be facing the might of the Celtics, but they have been playing well, and the points are too good to pass up.
Antetokounmpo could have a massive game, and will be lapping up the rebounds and getting down court before the Celtics’ transition defense kicks in.
Take the Bucks to at least keep it close over their Eastern Conference rivals.
NBA Pick: Bucks +6
Worth Betting on the Totals?
We’re leaning under 235. It should be a tight defensive battle, and although they have scorers all over the court, the game could be decided on lock-down defense.
Include the under in your NBA picks.
