Each of these teams have split the first four games of this series with a straight-up win and loss at home. The Celtics hold the slight 2-1-1 edge against the spread.

The winning team takes that all-important 3-2 series edge with Game 6 back in Milwaukee on Friday night.

Looking at the updated series price in what has turned into a best-of-three matchup, the Celtics still get the nod as -205 favorites to win. The series price odds on Milwaukee are now set at +175 to keep the Bucks’ title defense alive with the series win.

The head-to-head betting trends for Game 5 also lean towards Boston as a solid bet at home on Wednesday night. Over the last six games between these two teams played at TD Garden in Boston, the Celtics have been able to cover the closing spread at WynnBET in five of those contests.

Recent betting trends on the total line favor a lower scoring game than the current number suggests. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of the Bucks’ last nine games overall. It has also stayed UNDER in four of their last five games on the road. The total has stayed UNDER in five of Boston’s last seven games played.
