Raptors vs Bucks prediction

The Raptors are in full on tank mode in hopes of keeping their first round pick, and they're not only losing, but they're losing ugly. I'm not excited to get behind the Raptors in any shape or form. With that said, we just saw the Bucks lose back to back games as double-digit favorites to the Wizards and Grizzlies. In what world am I going to see that and happily lay 17 points with the Bucks? Get real. Again, the Raptors have been probably the worst team in the NBA over the last month, but this line is thick for a Bucks team that appears to be falling apart. Give me the road dog.
