A couple of NBA heavyweights lock horns in the Eastern Conference tonight as the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks clash for the 4th and final time in the regular season. Tip-off is at 7:30 pm ET on TNT, and I’ve cooked up a little Celtics vs Bucks Same Game Parlay to add some extra excitement. You can also check out all of our NBA picks for tonight’s matchups.

Celtics -2 (-108)

Kristaps Porzingis 2+ made threes (-170)

Damian Lillard to score 25+ points (-135)

Same Game Parlay odds: +386

Boston Celtics -2 over Milwaukee Bucks (-108)

Given the way the Bucks have been playing lately, the Celtics should dominate here. Boston has won 5 in a row and they’re also a dominant 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games. In head-to-head meetings, they’ve won 6 of the last 8 and in their last 10 visits to Fiserv Forum, they’ve failed to cover the spread just once.

With 4 defeats in a row, the Bucks have all but surrendered the number two seed in the East. The Orlando Magic and New York Knicks are just 1 game back now, and if Milwaukee doesn’t get their act together over the remaining 4 games they could slip all the way down to the 6th seed. The team chemistry just isn’t there right now and they’re losing to teams who have been eliminated from postseason contention a long time ago. Over the last 7 games, this team is 1-6 ATS/SU, and at home they’ve covered once in 6 games. I’m rolling with Boston.

Kristaps Porzingis 2+ made threes (-170)

With Kristaps Porzingis, or any other Celtics player here for that matter, my only concern is minutes played. Boston has wrapped up the number one seed in the East and they’re pretty much coasting these remaining games and resting as many players as possible. Unlike Tatum, KP did play against Portland last time, finishing with a modest 12 points in just 27 minutes played. He was still able to attempt 3 threes in that game and I expect him to get up as many, if not more, here as well. The Bucks’ defense has just been atrocious around the perimeter, they’re allowing 39.8% of made shots from outside the line in their last 3 games. For comparison, the Utah Jazz, who are dead last in this category, are allowing 39.7% for the season. That just sums up how bad the Bucks are currently, so let’s hope KP can take advantage of that and drain a couple of shots.

Damian Lillard to score 25+ points (-135)

In the 2 games since returning from injury, Dame has put up 36 on the Raptors and 23 on the Knicks. His shooting has been a bit off, but that is to be expected as he has missed a few games prior. What is encouraging is the fact that he’s getting to the line still, as in those 2 games he’s attempted 15 and 14 free throws. That’s one stat line that’s giving me the most confidence here, as Dame should look to assert himself early by attacking the basket. There’s also a possibility that Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn’t play here, which would mean Lillard becoming the number-one scoring option. He’s averaging 28.4 points per game in the last 10 meetings with the C’s, only twice during that stretch he has failed to clear this line. Since coming over from Portland, he’s scored 27, 21 and 32 points in 3 meetings. I expect at least 25 from him here.
