Bucks vs Celtics Prediction: November 12, 2021
November 12, 2021
✅The Celtics’ D is trending in the right direction. Miami, Orlando, and the Raptors were hit hard by the Celtics’ D, as they struggled to score more than 90 points against Boston.
✅Boston has enough firepower to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo, considering how well the D has performed as of late.
The 6-6 Milwaukee Bucks head to TD Garden as small 2.5-point favorites to open their four-game regular-season series against the Boston Celtics this Friday night. Both teams are off to a shaky start, so we should see a thrilling NBA battle in front of the Celtics’ fans. Boston has won three of its last four games to improve to 5-6 on the young season, while Milwaukee has gone 3-2 over its previous five outings. The reigning champs aim for their third straight victory, but they’ve lost eight of their previous 11 games at TD Garden.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics Betting Pick
This game will be played at 7:30 PM ET at TD Garden
Why bet the Celtics:
✅ - Boston misses Jaylen Brown (hamstring), who’s averaging 25.6 points and 6.1 boards per game this term, but all other guys are ready to play Friday. On the other side, Milwaukee is without Khris Middleton (20.0 PPG, 4.5 APG), Brook Lopez (8.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG), and Donte DiVincenzo. That’s three starters on the shelf for the reigning champions, whose offense has struggled mightily so far this season. The Bucks are scoring 107.9 points per 100 possessions (16th in the NBA) on just 43.9% shooting from the field (22nd) while handing out 21.7 assists (23rd).
✅ - The Celtics are struggling on the offensive end, too, tallying 105.9 points per 100 possessions (22nd) on 43.4% shooting from the field (24th), but their defense has been terrific as of late. Boston held Miami and Orlando below an 80-point mark, and the Celtics are coming off a 104-88 victory to Toronto, limiting the Raptors to 24.0% shooting from deep. They rank third in the league in opponent assists per 100 possessions (20.8) and eighth in the opponent 3-point percentage (32.6%).
✅ - The Bucks are forced to lean a lot on Giannis Antetokounmpo because of their injury problems. The Greek Freak posted 15 points, 15 rebounds, and eight assists in Milwaukee’s 112-100 victory at the New York Knicks last Wednesday, shooting just 5-for-15 from the field. The Knicks couldn’t cope with Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton, who combined for 38 points, but the Celtics will do a much better job in the backcourt than New York. Boston also owns enough big bodies to deal with Giannis, and Robert Williams III and Al Horford will be all over the reigning NBA Finals MVP.

Bucks vs Celtics Predictions
When making predictions on Bucks vs Celtics games, bettors have a lot to think about. Bettors have to be on their game to win when betting on the NBA. This applies to the three main NBA betting markets: the point spread, total and moneyline.
Bucks vs Celtics Against the Spread Predictions
Against the spread betting is one of the main forms of NBA wagering. It asks bettors to predict who is going to win when a point spread is applied to the game at the end. Here, bettors have to determine if the favorite is going to win by enough to cover the number, or if the underdog can keep things close enough to cover the spread or win outright.
Bucks vs Celtics Over/Under Betting
In over/under betting, every possession is extremely important. Here, bettors are assigned with predicting how much scoring is going to happen in a game. Bookmakers post a total that they project the game to fall on when the game is over. Bettors are then able to bet on whether they think the actual combined score of both teams in a game will score over or under that amount.
Bucks vs Celtics Moneyline Predictions
Moneyline betting asks bettors one simple question heading into this game between the Bucks and Celtics. That question is which team will win this game when the final buzzer sounds. While there is always a favorite and an underdog in each game, there is no such thing as a free win in the NBA, and underdogs can pull upsets frequently in this league.
Bucks vs Celtics Odds
The odds for Bucks vs Celtics are determined based on who oddsmakers think will come out on top in this game and by how much. But the odds can fluctuate before tip-off thanks to factors like injuries and the amount of betting that takes place on each side of a game. Bettors should keep an eye on the odds constantly to find the best numbers they can when betting.
