PointsBets Sportsbook revealed that 71% of spread bets (74% of the spread handle) are in favor of the Bucks. The Celtics enter the matchup as 5.5-point favorites, which is certainly influencing those numbers.

BetMGM released similar numbers with the same spread total. 66 percent of bettors, (70% of the spread handle) took the Bucks to cover. Most surprisingly, 72% of BetMGM bettors are taking the Milwaukee moneyline.

The public is also very high on the Under in this game.

The Celtics will take on the Bucks for Game 5 of the best-of-seven series at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday in TD Garden.
