The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 7-0 in Raptors last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 overall. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Toronto Raptors are playing better ball as of late, and they've been kind against the spread, but they're on the end of a back to back here and this isn't the easiest spot. The Milwaukee Bucks will be eager to bounce back after losing to the Pistons as 17-point favorites, and even with that loss, they're winning their last five games by an average of 10.6 points. The Bucks win in the favorite role by an average of 8.7 points. Big number, but I'm more confident in the Bucks at home with the rest advantage.
