Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction, Preview, and Odds 1/11/2024

The Celtics and Bucks will face off on TNT tonight in a battle between the top two teams in the East. The Celtics won the first meeting 119-116 in a game that they were up as many as 21 points but the Bucks made a late push to make it a close game. The Celtics are on the second night of a back to back and won in overtime last night so the Bucks will have the fresh legs and home court advantage. Let's get into our Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction for tonight.

Boston Celtics:

  • The Celtics are showcasing an impressive offensive force, averaging 120.9 points per game and a 48.1% field goal percentage. Their 3-point shooting is also a key strength, with a success rate of 37.4%.

  • On defense, the Celtics are averaging 6.8 steals and 6.4 blocks per game. While their turnovers average at 12.6 per game, their rebounding efforts have been a significant contributor to their success.

Milwaukee Bucks:

  • The Bucks are outdoing even the Celtics in scoring, averaging 124.3 points per game with a 50% field goal percentage and a remarkable 37.6% from the 3-point line.

  • Their defensive stats are closely matched with Boston, with 6.7 steals and 5.5 blocks per game, though their turnovers are slightly higher at 13 per game. The Bucks' rebounding is solid but not quite at the same level as the Celtics.

Key Matchup:

  • A critical matchup in this game is between Jaylen Brown of the Celtics and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks. Brown's scoring ability and agility will be tested against Giannis's size and defensive prowess, which could significantly influence the game's outcome.

Game Prediction:

  • This game is shaping up to be a high-scoring and closely contested battle with both team shooting at an efficient rate. The Celtics will be on the second night of a back to back so don't expect to see their best defensive effort in this game tonight.

  • It will be key to see who is actually playing for the Celtics in this game before locking in your bet but it does look like Tatum and Brown are good to go.

  • Let's take the over in what should be a high scoring, entertaining game on TNT.
