NBA Betting – Celtics Battle Bucks in Milwaukee
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
Whether you’re chowing down on some clam chowder or grabbing a cup of beer cheese soup, Bookmaker Sportsbook is always on the menu, serving the very best NBA betting lines and totals for Sunday and everyday throughout the 2010-2011 season, including the Eastern Conference clash between the Milwaukee Bucks and the East leading Boston Celtics.
One team sits on top of the Eastern Conference standings while the other needs desperately to put together a strong second half if it has any hopes of reaching the NBA betting post season. The top dogs from Boston now hit the road once again to battle the reeling Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, March 6th at the Bradley Center with all of the action set to tip off at 9:00 ET with ESPN set to deliver the national television broadcast.
Winning just comes naturally for the Boston Celtics, who not only went into the All Star break with a two game NBA betting winning streak, but also came out of the layoff by claiming victories in four of five contests, which included three wins on the road. Whether in Boston or traveling across the country, Boston’s big three continue to impress, especially Ray Allen, who is now the NBA’s all time leading three point shooter. Not to say that Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett are slouches, or even point guard Rajon Rondo, but Allen has once again stepped his game up and is a scoring threat every time he touches the ball.
In Boston’s most recent win, 115-103 at home over Phoenix, Allen connected on four more shots from long range and finished with 19 points, but it was Garnett that set the tone, tallying a game high 28 points and 11 rebounds while Paul Pierce added 16 and 13. Rondo would finish with 16 points, three steals and a game high 15 assists.
Entering a Friday night contest against Golden State, the Boston Celtics have won two straight NBA betting contests and own a 29-28-2 record ATS while the ‘over’ has played 31-28 on the year. In Boston’s last ten trips to Milwaukee, however, the Celts have collected just six wins and a 4-6 record against the numbers.
Though the Milwaukee Bucks have the pieces in place to make a late season run to the playoffs, they have yet to put everything together. Currently sitting on the outside looking in, the Bucks got off to a good start after the All Star break, beating Minnesota at home in their first game out. In their next two games, however, the Bucks returned to their losing ways, dropping back to back games against New York and Chicago respectively. Needing a win to gain momentum heading into a Friday night contest with Phoenix before Boston comes to town, the Bucks took down Detroit on Tuesday night, 92-90, at the Bradley Center.
Point guard Brandon Jennings scored 21 points, had a key block in the closing seconds and made the clinching free throws with 5.9 seconds left to push the Bucks over the top. “That’s just making plays down the stretch in the fourth quarter,” Jennings said.
Heading into Friday’s NBA betting contest with Phoenix, the Bucks have lost four of five to the numbers and own a 26-31-2 record ATS while the ‘under’ has played 37-22.
