The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the Boston Celtics tonight at the Bradley Center.
The Celtics have won nine of their last 10 games and look to build on their current four-game win streak after beating the Kings by 128-119 on Sunday. Avery Bradley led the team with 25 points, Isaiah Thomas added 22 points and Jared Sullinger had 21 points as the Celtics shot 56 percent from the field and 13 of 24 from the 3-point line to pour on a season-high 46 points in the first quarter before cruising in the second half. WIth the dominant win, Boston improves to 31-22 on the season which has them currently at third place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have lost seven of their last eight games and will be aiming to snap their current five-game win streak after losing at Utah by 84-81 on Friday. Khris Middleton led the team with 18 points, Jerryd Bayless added 15 points while Greg Monroe had 14 as the Bucks battled with the Jazz until midway through the fourth quarter where the Jazz would pull away and steal the game. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 20-32 overall and 7-24 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, while the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Celtics are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in Milwaukee.
The early money seems to be going towards the Bucks who will be well-rested as they haven't played since Friday, but I'm still liking the red-hot Celtics who have just been running through opponents lately.
