The Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics close out a two-game series on Friday night, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 7:30 and can be seen on ESPN.

On Wednesday, the Celtics made a strong fourth-quarter comeback to cover the spread (and hit the over), but fell 121-119. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 27 points while Giannis Antetokounmpo had a relatively quiet game with just 13 points on 11 attempts.

Daniel Theis, who had a shot to win Wednesday’s game, is no longer a Celtic after a deadline-day trade, and Javonte Green and Jeff Teague have also departed. New arrival Evan Fournier will not be active against the Bucks, but could potentially play Saturday.

  • Point spread: Bucks -6

  • Money line: Bucks -250 / Celtics +195

  • Over-under: 235.5

Advice and prediction

On a quiet night for Giannis, the Bucks led by 14 at the start of the fourth quarter, and led by as many as nine with 3:02 remaining. With the Celtics missing an important role player in Theis and with Fournier not yet on the floor, I think the Bucks are better suited to close out a win and cover on Friday. Take the Bucks -6, and the over 235.5.

Prediction: Bucks 124, Celtics 113
