The Bucks lead this Eastern Conference series, 3-2. But I'm convinced the Celtics are the better team. The Celtics beat the Bucks in Milwaukee in Game 4 and I see them doing it again here.
Boston has outscored the Bucks in the series. The Celtics' average margin of victory is 15.5 points. The Bucks have won two of their three games in the series by a combined five points.
The Celtics let a 14-point lead slip away in losing Game 6, 110-107, at home this past Wednesday.
Boston, though, has proven itself on the road going 6-0-1 ATS the last seven times as a road 'dog. The Celtics also are 9-1 following a loss. Milwaukee is 1-6-1 ATS in its last eight home games.
It's an added bonus for the Celtics if injured big man Robert Williams can play after missing the past two games because of knee soreness.
