NBA play-offs betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors.

Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks (01:00 BST on Wednesday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 2


The Boston Celtics are targeting another win over the Milwaukee Bucks in their Eastern Conference semi-final duel. The Celtics drew first blood in the best-of-seven series after blasting the top-seeded Bucks 112-90 at the Fiserv Forum on Sunday. Kyrie Irving had 26 points and 11 assists while Al Horford tallied 20 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks to lead the visitors. Jaylen Brown and reserves Gordon Hayward and Terry Rozier also scored in double figures as the Celtics triumphed in the duel between the  last unbeaten teams in the ongoing play-offs. Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks with 22 points but shot just 7-of-21 from the field.  Khris Middleton backed him up with 16 points and 10 rebounds while Nikola Mirotic added 13 off the bench. Eric Bledsoe, who averaged 19.3 points in the first round, was held to just six points. Brook Lopez was another non-factor for the Bucks in Game 1. Celtics centre Aron Baynes is listed as questionable in this contest after tweaking his left ankle late in Game 1. We expect the Bucks to bounce back in this contest.

Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors (03:30 BST on Wednesday) - Western Conference Semi-finals Game 2


Expect another fierce encounter between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference semi-finals. The Warriors took the lead in the best-of-seven series after pulling off a 104-100 win at the Oracle Arena on Sunday. All Golden State starters scored in double figures with Kevin Durant leading the way with 35 points. Stephen Curry added 18 points despite nursing a right ankle injury. Klay Thompson also played through the same injury and finished with 13 points. Draymond Green tallied 14 points, nine rebounds and nine assists while Andre Iguodala also scored 14 as he started in place of Andrew Bogut after head coach Steve Kerr opted for a smaller starting unit. James Harden led Houston with 35 points but last season’s league MVP shot just 9-of-28 on the floor. Eric Gordon backed him up with 27 points while Chris Paul added 17 before being ejected with 4.4 seconds left after being slapped with his second technical foul. Clint Capela and PJ Tucker were non-factors in Game 1 after averaging in double figures in scoring in their first-round win over the Utah Jazz. Capela was held to four points while Tucker failed to score in 39 minutes. The consolation for head coach Mike D’Antoni was he got quality minutes from veteran big man Nene, who went 3-of-3 from the field and finished with eight points off the bench. The Warriors are again favoured in Game 2 but we don’t expect them to cover the spread.
