Series history & Game 3 odds

The two teams opened their series with a ferocious battle.

In Game 1, they fought to an overtime finish with the Boston Celtics capturing the 113-107 victory. Four Celtics players had 20 points or more including Al Horford's double-double of 24 points and 12 boards to lead the way. In Game 2, Boston had an easier time of things, winning 120-106. They were propelled by Jaylen Brown's 30 points along with Terry Rozier adding 23 in the effort. They also won despite the Bucks shooting nearly 60 percent from the field.

In each of the first two games of this series, the "Greek Freak" Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 or more points. He nearly achieved a triple-double in each game too, suggesting that he may really look to take over Game 3 and lead the Bucks to a big home victory. Teammate Chris Middleton also played well in Game 2 with a 10-for-14 shooting performance including a 4-of-6 rate from long range.

For tonight's third game, Odds Shark has given the Milwaukee Bucks the consensus edge on the point spread. The home team is favored by five points with a moneyline price of -220 to -240 at various sportsbooks. The visitors are a +190 to +200 underdog, while tonight's points total is around 205.5 points for all the over/under bettors out there.
