The Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks will meet tonight from Boston’s TD Garden. Get NBA odds at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Celtics came into the season expected to battle Miami for the top spot in the Eastern conference and got their first shot at the defending champs on opening night. The Celtics came up short at Miami on Tuesday night losing 120– 107. It looks like it will take a little bit of time for the Celtics defense to gel given all of the new acquisitions they made in the off-season. A good sign though is the fact that Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce both had very solid games in the opener.
The Bucks their first game of the season tonight in Boston and will look to finally take that next step above the .500 mark this season. The Bucks are looking to get in the mix for those last couple playoff spots in the Eastern conference and could very well get there behind a talented backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. If those two can coexist in the same backcourt they could pose serious matchup problems for their opponents.
While we don’t necessarily think that the Bucks can win the game tonight we think they can keep it close as Boston assimilates to all of their new pieces. We will take Milwaukee as point spread underdogs on the road in this game at the best sportsbooks online.
