We have the two games today and one series will probably end whilst the other is all tied up at 2 a piece.
The Boston Celtics travel to Milwaukee to play the Bucks and are 3 to 1 down in the series. The Bucks have been very impressive in their last 2 games and will look to end the series.
The Rockets are a legitimate chance to knock the Golden State Warriors off and have managed to tie up the series as it heads back to the Oracle Arena.
It is shaping up as a decent day of basketball.

Boston Celtics 1 @ Milwaukee Bucks 3
Prediction – Game Total Over 221.5
Milwaukee – 8.5
The Bucks should wrap up the series in this game and Giannis has been simply unstoppable. The Celtics have had no answer to his offensive presence and will once again find it tough to contain him.
When the Bucks win they generally win by a decent margin and this game could be a blowout. Quite a few of their wins go over the Game Total number and if the Celtics get some sort of offense going, it should go over the number once again.
The Bucks in a comprehensive win and the Game Total to go over are decent options in this contest.
Houston Rockets 2 @ Golden State Warriors 2
Prediction – Game Total Over 219.5
Golden State – 6.5
The Rockets have tied up the series as it heads back to the Bay Area. The Warriors are generally tough to beat at home and it will be a big ask for Houston to cause a potential upset.
It is a finals game but the Game Total does seem rather low in this one. The over doesn’t look too bad as both sides generally score over 100 points when they matchup.
The Splash Brothers haven’t really got going as yet and if they do the Rockets will find it very tough. Expect a High Scoring contest and Draymond Green to get a lot of assists.
The Warriors to cover and the Game Total to go over looks decent.
