Toronto Raptors (50-19) at Milwaukee Bucks (55-15)

Im betting the Bucks will jam the paint and make the Raptors beat them from the perimeter. The last time the two teams met, Toronto attempted a season-high 52 3s, connecting on 18 of them (34.6%) and have attempted 88 in two games against the Bucks this year. . The Raptors attempt 36.9 3s per game After five quarters of very inconsistent shooting, Toronto shot 14-for-30 (46.7%) in the final three quarters of its win on over Memphis and Im betting that their lack of consistent conversion rates from downtown and the field will be their undoing here today vs the Bucks.
MILWAUKEE is 23-9 ATS off a upset loss as a favorite over the last 2 seasons.MILWAUKEE is 17-8 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season.
TORONTO is 1-9 ATS vs. dominant rebounding teams - outrebounding opponents by 5+ per game over the last 2 seasons.
NBA favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points (MILWAUKEE) - top caliber team - outscoring their opponents by 9+ points/game, after scoring 105 points or more 3 straight games are 114-64 ATS L/24 seasons for a 64% conversion rate.
