Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Milwaukee is favored by two points in the latest Celtics vs. Bucks odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is set at 213.5. Before entering any Bucks vs. Celtics picks, you’ll want to see the NBA predictions from the model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Celtics

Boston has now won three of its last four games, including a 104-88 win over Toronto on Wednesday. The Celtics lost to the Raptors by 32 points earlier this season, so it was an impressive turnaround. They have now held three of their last four opponents under 90 points.

Star guard Jaylen Brown is going to be out again due to his hamstring strain, but the Celtics have found a way to make things work without him. They had six players score in double figures against Toronto. Boston has covered the spread in four of its last five games, so the market appears to be overreacting to Brown’s absence.

What you need to know about the Bucks

Milwaukee went through a rough patch during the last few weeks, going 1-5 in a six-game stretch. The Bucks have recovered, though, winning their last two games heading into this contest. They beat Philadelphia and New York by a combined 21 points.

Khris Middleton (protocols) and Brook Lopez (back) are expected to remain out on Friday, but Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 15 points and grabbed 15 rebounds against the Knicks. He’s listed as probable (ankle). Guard Pat Connaughton knocked down a career-high seven 3-pointers, leading the team with 23 points. The Bucks have held six of their last seven opponents to under 110 points.
