The Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks meet Sunday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Toronto Raptors are averaging 112.9 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 49.1 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 24.2 points and 7.7 rebounds, while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.4 points and 4.2 rebounds. Gary Trent Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and O.G. Anunoby is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 116.2 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.4 points and 11.9 rebounds, while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.4 points and 5.2 rebounds. Brook Lopez is the third double-digit scorer and Khris Middleton is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.9 rebounds per game.
The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 6-1 in Raptors last 7 overall. The over is 19-7 in Bucks last 26 home games. The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
I've stayed away from the Raptors a lot this season, and the Milwaukee Bucks obviously can smoke anybody at home when they're playing well. However, this is a lot of points to give a feisty Raptors squad that loses as underdogs by an average of just 1.9 points. This is also just the second time this season the Raptors are underdogs of 7.5 or more points. Thick line for a Raptors team that's still fighting for playoff seeding. Give me the free buckets.
