Ryley's Daily Basketball Pick: April 7th
Two Eastern Conference titans are set to face off tonight, as the Boston Celtics are visiting the Milwaukee Bucks.
Both teams come into this matchup covering three out of the last five games. Boston is 6-7 ATS on the second leg of back-to-backs. With a rest advantage, the Bucks are 12-11 ATS. This is a spot for the defending champs to make a statement at home.
The Celtics are missing Jayson Tatum and Al Horford, leaving their front line thin against one of the most dominant forces in the NBA, in Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks shoot 67.9% at the rim, which will give the Celtics issues. This should be the focal point of the Bucks’ offense tonight. The Celtics will not be as motivated and won’t have a punchers chance without their star, Tatum. Give me the Bucks -8
