The No. 4 seed Boston Celtics will look to steal another road matchup against the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks in Tuesday night's Game 2 of the second-round series.

Despite losing the opening game of the series, the Bucks are still favored to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals at -130. They are also 7.5-point favorites for Game 2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

As it's always smart to hear what those in the industry have to say before placing a bet, here are some expert predictions for Tuesday night's game.

Celtics vs Bucks Predictions


Dizzy McGee, of WagerTalkNews, took Boston to win straight up in the opening game of the series and it worked out. McGee is going back to the well again, but is playing it safe by just taking the Celtics plus the points in this one.

The staff at Winning Free Picks notes how the Celtics have covered in four of their last five matchups against the Bucks. They have also covered in their last six games overall, so he's expecting that trend to continue. The crew at Winning Free Picks is taking Boston to cover the spread in Game 2.


Lorenzo Gahol, of BettingPro, sees the Bucks bouncing back in this one. Celtics' center, Aaron Baynes, is likely out with an ankle injury that he picked up in Game 1, and Giannis Antetokounmpo should bounce back from his 7-21 shooting night. Gahol is taking the Bucks to cover the spread.

Overall, we have two experts taking the Celtics to cover again and one expert predicting the Bucks to come away with the win and cover.
