(NBA) Boston vs. Milwaukee, 05/13/2022 7:30 PM, Score: 108 - 95
Point Spread: 1.50 | -103.00 Boston (Away)
Result: Win
T.M. Selection: Boston Celtics.

I like the Boston Celtics to cover the spread against the Milwaukee Bucks in this game on Friday. The Celtics have looked good in their games lately and I think they are going to take this road game back and even up the series at 3. The Celtics have actually looked better in their road games than in their home games in this postseason, with their biggest loss of this series coming on their home court. They had a really impressive win in Milwaukee and they also lost a very close game there by 2 points. They just lost their previous game on their home court but that loss was by 3 points and they looked really good for most of that game too, dominating up until the 4th quarter where they let it slip away near the end. The Celtics have still shown that they aren't going to be slowed down in their road games and even in their previous series against the Nets, they won all 4 games but the games were much closer on their home court in that series while they dominated the road games in Brooklyn. The 1st 2 games in this series were complete blowouts, 1 by each team, but the 3 most recent games and have been much closer and really, both teams had a chance to win all of those games. I think the Celtics are going to show their strength here once again and I expect a great defensive effort from them in this game. The Bucks are also dealing with a thin rotation and I expect all those injuries to catch up to them at some point too. I like the Celtics to cover the spread here and even up this series 3-3.

T.M. Prediction: 104-99 Celtics.
