On today’s edition of “Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell,” RJ Bell, AJ Hoffman, and MacKenzie Rivers discuss the Boston Celtics being a 3-point underdog for game 3 in their series against the Milwaukee Bucks. With the Bucks playing without F Khris Middleton and Celtics’ G Marcus Smart as questionable, RJ and the Vegas crew discuss if the C’s are being undervalued on the road and for the rest of the series!
RJ Bell: “Here’s what fascinating about this Boston line: So +3 is home court (for Milwaukee). I’m interested in Marcus Smart’s status because if Smart’s out, maybe we can kind of even it out. Doesn’t it strike you that this line without (Khris) Middleton is saying that Milwaukee is an even team against Boston, even without their 3rd best player?”
MacKenzie Rivers: “I think a 6 point swing would be appropriate here. (Boston) should be +1.5. I don’t get the line. I think Milwaukee is overvalued and I think there’s value on Boston here at +3.”
AJ Hoffman: “We haven’t seen many complete obliterations like we saw last night in these playoffs. The fact that there’s still value is surprising.”
