The NBA Playoffs’ Second Round is going to end and we have seen two teams qualify in the form of the Miami Heat and the Golden State Warriors. However, these two will quickly find out who they will face in the first game of the Conference Finals. In the East, the Miami Heat will closely watch this Game 7 battle between the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. This has been the most thrilling series considering that the two teams have won on the road twice each. It means that the team with the home-court advantage has been in the losing position. In Game 6, Jayson Tatum unloaded 46 points to hand a 108:95 loss to the Bucks. Will the Celtics carry this momentum to Game 7 in a series where a team is yet to win two in a row?

Best bets on Celtics vs Bucks

Handicap: Bookmakers from 22bet clearly favor the Celtics to devise a win here and advance to the Conference Finals. They have been given the odds of 1.44 to win this game against the 2.78 attributed to the Bucks. I side with the bookmakers here and believe that despite losing twice in three games at home, the Celtics will close the deal. I’ll take them with a handicap of at least 4 points (Handicap 1 -4.5 for 1.82)

Player Props: Bookmakers at bet365 predict odds of 1.66 for Jaylen Brown Over 2.5 threes here(At least three triples). Brown has nailed 4, 3, 2, 1, 6, and 3 in the series so far, meaning he has gone past the above four out of his six times. I think he will come up big with perimeter shooting. I see him going “Over” here. (Player Props: Player Threes Made: Jaylen Brown Over 2.5 for 1.66)

Total: Bookmakers at 1xbet give the Total of 206.5(Over/Under) the equal odds of 1.97 and that is because the scoring line has fluctuated around that mark for most parts. The games have totaled 203, 217, 224, 204, 195, and 190. It means that the total mark has been breached only twice and there have been numerous instances when one of the teams has been below 100. However, I think both teams will go above 100 here and the total will be “Over”.. (Total Over 207.5 for 2.06)

Boston Celtics

Jayson Tatum has found his footing in this series and he has bucketed down 46, 34, and 30 points in the last three games, which means his scoring has progressed as the series has gone on. The Celtics have actually done a much better job since Game 2 and if not for late errors in Game 5, the series would have been over in their favor. However, that didn’t deter the team to gather some steam in the last game and the elite defense was once again in the works. Marcus Smart has played much better while Horford has provided some big-time rebounding presence and White has given quality defense off the bench. The Celtics have much more scoring balance right now in comparison to the Bucks, a team that is missing their primetime Playoffs performer Khris Middleton. Can the Celtics finish the series offering the scoring balance like the last game?

Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo has no chill, he continues pouring points at an elite rate and has been the highest-yielding player this series. He had another huge scoring night, compiling 44 points and 20 rebounds in the last game. He has scored 40 or more in three of the last four games while grabbing 10+ rebounds in five of the six games. Jrue Holiday had 17 in the last game and has shot below 40% in the series as his scoring responsibilities have increased without Middleton. Lopez has been quiet after a couple of strong offensive games while Portis isn’t shooting well at all. Pat Connaughton has been at his best, getting 14 points in the last game, nailing six of his eight shots, which has been the theme for him these Playoffs. Grayson Allen shot just 1/7 in the last game and his offensive production has been done. Can the Bucks seal the deal here?
