Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction: Can Jayson Tatum, Al Horford Repeat in Game 5?

The Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks will battle it out in bean town on Wednesday for a pivotal game five. This series has been what we expected so far from two of the best teams in all of the NBA. We are a cool 4-0 betting on this series, and I found a gem of a pick for us tonight to expand to 5-0. Here is my prediction, pick, and odds for tonight's Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks game.

Celtics vs. Bucks Line Movement

Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction

Game 4 was a sweat for the Celtics' moneyline, but they managed to get it done behind a heroic effort from veteran big Al Horford. Big Al turned the clock back, leading the way for the Celtics with thirty points, a playoff career-high. Jayson Tatum really took over in the last three minutes, hitting multiple clutch shots for the Celtics.

The Bucks had an eleven-point lead in the fourth quarter but could not hang on. Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped thirty-four points but struggled big time in the fourth quarter. It was the second game in a row where it seemed like Giannis ran out of gas. The Bucks blew a double-digit lead in the fourth when they played the Celtics in game three, but a couple of clutch shots late saved them from losing that game.

The bottom line is the fourth quarter has been a struggle for the Bucks. The Celtics now will have to hold serve to win this series. This basically becomes a three-game set, and the Celtics know the series runs through their home court. These teams split their meetings in Boston as Game 1 was a blowout win by the Bucks countered by Game 2 being a blowout win by the Celtics. The Celtics enter play tonight as a -5.5 point favorite.

I am taking the home team tonight on the spread. I love the way Boston won that last game, and that win carries over. They did not play a pretty game for the most part on the offensive end, but they clutched up when it mattered. I have been impressed with the way the Celtics have played the last two games in the fourth quarter.

The Bucks have struggled to maintain leads, and for whatever reason, Giannis has looked gas late in games. The absence of Khris Middleton showed up last game when the Bucks needed some stops and to give Giannis some help. I believe the line is pretty telling tonight in favor of the Celtics. This is the largest spread of the entire series, and I would not be surprised if the public backs the dog in the Bucks. I expect a focused effort on their home court tonight in what should be a great game.
