Bucks vs. Celtics, 3:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Celtics -5
The stage was set for the Bucks to punch their ticket to the Eastern conference finals with a Game 6 win on their home floor, but Tatum and the Celtics had different plans. After a crushing loss in Game 5, Boston is coming off a huge momentum boost to close out the series back home. Take the Celtics to win the series 4-3.
Over/Under: Over 206
This series has arguably been the most entertaining of the postseason to date and it is a testament to the defense played by both teams. That being said, expect Tatum and company to bring their all on the offensive side of the ball and for Antetokoumpo to carry the Bucks. The game may be close but both teams will find the basket. Take the over here.
