Free NBA Release for 3/22: Milwaukee Bucks -3 (-105 5DIMES)over the Boston Celtics. Milwaukee should have this game highlighted, circled, and underline on their schedule. They've lost four straight to the Celtics, including a 102-96 defeat in Boston three weeks ago. Alot has changed since then. Milwaukee has won six straight by average margin of 13 points/game, and they've cashed in eight straight times at the window. While the quality of the opponents haven't been particularly strong in this streak, note that four of those six games we're on the road. The Bucks also became very active just before the trade deadline, acquiring one of the top scorers in the league from the Golden State Warriors, in G Monta Ellis. Ellis hasn't shined yet in his two game so far with his new club. But his presence on the team could make Milwaukee one of the most balanced attacks in the NBA, as evident in their most recent outting in Portland where six players scored double-digit figures. Now the Bucks return home with thier newly acquired high-flying point guard, a six game winning streak, and some serious revenge on their minds...we're suspecting there will be a lively crowd and a little home-court advantage tonight at the Bradley Center. Boston is 24-21 on the year, but they're still just 8-13 on the road. They are coming off an upset win in Atlanta, but they're also looking ahead to a big show-down tomorrow night with the 76ers in Philadelphia (where they will be looking for a little revenge themselves from a blowout loss a month ago). Overall, Milwaukee outscores, outrebounds, and outperforms Boston from the bench. And even though they've lost four straight to Celtics, they are also 4-1 ATS in the last five games of this series. Boston is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 road games. And coming off an road ATS win, we like the odds of them not making it two straight. Milwaukee is coming off a day of rest, and they are a perfect 6-0 at the window in their last six such situations. They're also 4-0 ATS in their last four at home. Bet the Milwaukee Bucks -3 Thursday Night.
