The Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum.
The Toronto Raptors look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 113.9 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 20.5 points and 4.5 assists while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.9 points and 4.2 rebounds. Kyle Lowry is the third double-digit scorer and Norman Powell is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 37.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 120.7 points on 49.2 percent shooting and allowing 112.6 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28 points and 11.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.7 points and six assists. Jrue Holiday is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is dishing 0.6 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 39.9 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 38.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.8 rebounds per game.
The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The Bucks are 14-4 ATS in their last 18 Tuesday games. The over is 8-1 in Raptors last 9 overall. The over is 7-2-1 in Bucks last 10 overall. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors look like a team that's starting to figure things out and this is a statement game against a team they've beaten in five of the last eight meetings. The Milwaukee Bucks are dominant at home where they win by an average of 13.5 points while shooting 50.7 percent from the field, but they've had trouble finishing games lately and haven't been great defensively during this losing streak. The Bucks are going to be favored for obvious reasons, but I'm leaning toward the points here.
