The Toronto Raptors are on the road looking to wrap up the NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Thursday night when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks. The Raptors lead the series 3-2 and have won the last 2 games back to back, SU and ATS.

The Raptors won 3 out of the 4 regular season games against the Bucks, both SU and ATS. In the games between these two this year, the game has played under the posted total 6 out of 9 times.

Raptors Hopeful That Kyle Lowry Can Play Tonight

The Toronto Raptors are 54-33 SU and 47-39-1 ATS. They were 24-19 on the road this year and played 46 of their 87 games over the posted total. The Raptors have won 7 out of their last 10 games SU and split their games 5-5 ATS.

The Raptors have the 10th ranked offense and the 8th ranked defense in the NBA. They are scoring an average of 106.9 points per game and holding their opponents to 102.6 points per game. They are led on offense by SG DeMar DeRozan, who is averaging 27.3 points per game.

Raptors Injury Update: Kyle Lowry is dealing with some back stiffness but he is not expected to miss anytime from the injury. Make sure you monitor the situation and if you are a DFS player, I would strongly urge you to consider the fact that he is the team leader in minutes per game but with sore throat and illness, he may lose some time from the court tonight.

Bucks Need A Huge Game From The Greek Freak

The Milwaukee Bucks are 44-43 SU and 39-48 ATS. The Bucks were 24-19 at home and played 43 of their 87 games over the posted total. The Bucks have lost 6 out of their last 10 games SU and split their last 10 games, 5-5 ATS. In those 10 games, 7 of the games played under the posted total.

The Bucks have the 20th ranked offense in the NBA, averaging 103.6 points per game. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks on offense, averaging 22.9 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game and 5.4 assists per game.

Bucks Injury Update: Khris Middleton is currently ill but is expected to play tonight. As of the posting, he is expected to play but make sure you monitor the situation.


The Raptors are simply a better team and truth be told, the Bucks aren’t really that good even when playing at home. The Raptors were dominant in the regular season and lead the postseason as well. I’m looking for the Raptors to wrap up the season here and advance in the Eastern Conference Playoffs (This play is contingent on Kyle Lowry playing tonight)

Pick: Toronto Raptors +1.5 for 2 Units
