Celtics vs Bucks Game 6 Betting Pick
This game will be played at Fiserv Forum at 7:30 PM ET on Friday, May 13, 2022.
In one of the best NBA playoff games of the season, the Milwaukee Bucks came back to win Game 5 over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. On Friday, the Bucks are at home and will look to close out the Celtics on their home floor to make a second straight Eastern Conference Finals. In our NBA picks for Friday night, we look at Celtics vs Bucks Game 6 and decide whether the Bucks will advance or the Celtics will force a Game 7 at home.
Why Bet The Bucks:
✅ The Milwaukee Bucks seized all of the momentum in this series with their Game 5 win on the road in TD Garden. They made all of the key plays that they needed to down the stretch, while the Celtics failed to close things out on both ends of the floor. That game showed a huge difference in championship DNA, which the Bucks will take advantage of in Game 6 to close this series out.
✅ Home teams have lost just five times in the second round of the playoffs so far. While three of those losses by home teams have come in this series, the Bucks showed last postseason that they are more than capable of closing teams out. Expect another home team to roll in this contest and for the Bucks to go to the Eastern Conference Finals as a result.
✅ Boston needed 30 points from Al Horford to win in Milwaukee earlier in this series, which is not something they can rely on to happen again. Horford was held under 10 points in Game 5, and the veteran big coming back down to Earth for the Celtics is going to cost them the ability to force a Game 7.
The Boston Celtics led by 12 points in the fourth quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5 on Wednesday. But they completely fell apart offensively down the stretch, and some timely shooting for the Bucks was enough to steal the game away from Boston to give Milwaukee a 3-2 series lead. Now, the Celtics have to win on the road to avoid elimination.
Boston has won once in Milwaukee already in this series, with Jayson Tatum and Al Horford both scoring 30 points in the Celtics’ Game 4 road win. Since a 30-point playoff game from Al Horford has only happened that one time in his career, the Celtics will need more from Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown Boston to stay alive.
Milwaukee looked like it was on the way to trailing the Boston Celtics 3-2 when they trailed by double figures in Game 5. But the Bucks showed their championship grit and came back to win that game without Khris Middleton to help their offense. Instead, it was a combination of Jrue Holiday, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Bobby Portis that propelled the Bucks to that pivotal victory.
In Game 6, Portis will be key once again for the Bucks as his rebounding was huge in Game 5. Portis grabbed 15 rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, and his rebounding will be huge whether or not Rob Williams suits up for the Celtics on Friday night. Milwaukee wants no part of going into a Game 7 as a road underdog, meaning everyone will need to be sharp for the Bucks in this contest.
