With the series on a knife-edge at 1-1, Milwaukee takes home-court advantage into Fiserv Forum on Sunday against Boston.

On Wednesday, the Celtics levelled it up with a big 109-86 win as Jayson Tatum and Jalen Brown combined for 59 points. 

It is a well-known fact that Tatum and Brown need to post big numbers for Boston to perform. 

Without the defensive application of Khris Middleton, the Celtics exposed the Bucks from long range while defending the Bucks brilliantly from beyond the arc. 

If this will become a three-point battle, the Bucks need to be better than their horrible three from 18 in game two. 

Middleton is likely to miss this game and opens the door for Tatum and Brown to dominate once again. 

Milwaukee will be looking towards their Greek Freak to haul them over the line, and we all know what he is capable of at his best. 

Boston has done its best to quell Giannis in this series. 

The momentum is with Boston; let’s follow that into this contest as they look to launch a barrage of long-range mortars. 

Suggested Bet: Boston +2.5 at $1.95

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Boston +2.5
Leg 2: J. Tatum over 24.5 points
Leg 3: J. Brown over 24.5 points
Combined odds = $5.50

Hanging onto a home-court advantage in a spicy series, the Golden State Warriors will look to take a 2-1 lead when they face Memphis at Chase Center on Sunday morning.

In a fiery crash on Wednesday, the Grizzlies levelled up the series with a 106-101 win in a fiery crash, but Golden State held the more substantial hand after pinching a win on the road in game one. 

Things heated up in game two as Dillon Brooks caused a stir when he was ejected for a flagrant foul, leaving Warriors guard Gary Payton II with a broken elbow. 

There is sure to be no love lost in game three, and if there is one team you do not want to get on the wrong side of, it is Golden State. 

The Warriors were uncharacteristically off from three-point range in game two, but the Payton-Brooks incident noticeably shook them up. 

Ja Morant took full advantage of the situation to hit 47 points, but that is sure to be quelled by the Warriors on their home turf. 

Expect a significant response from the home team.  

Suggested Bet: Golden State Warriors -7.5 at $1.96

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Golden State -7.5
Leg 2: S. Curry over 26.5
Leg 3: Total points over 225.5
Combined odds = $5.50
