First off, they’ll be facing a Celtics team who is playing their second game of a back-to-back on the road as more than 4 point dogs, a situation that has favored the home team to the tune of 301-65 over the past 3 years including 50-14 so far this season. Additionally, Milwaukee has a first-half conference-favorite dataset in their favor that’s covered 57% of the time over the past 4 years, good for 9.5% ROI.
