7:30 p.m. ET – Toronto at Milwaukee (-6½) O/U: 236
|Teams||Spread||Money Line||Total Points|
|Toronto Raptors||+6 (-110)||+215||O 236 -110|
|Milwaukee Bucks||-6½ (-110)||-265||U 236 (-110)|
The 13-15 Raptors head back to the Fiserv Forum for the second time in three days to take on the 16-12 Bucks. On Tuesday night, Toronto pulled off a 124-113 upset, led by guard Fred VanVleet scoring 33 points on 5-of-12 shooting from three-point range.
The key to the Raptors’ victory was the team’s hot shooting, as they hit over 50 percent from the field and roughly 40 percent from beyond the arc. Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for Milwaukee, boasting an impressive stat line that featured 34 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.
Kyle Lowry is questionable for Toronto in this matchup after only playing 21 minutes on Tuesday night with an ankle injury. Lowry was able to score 18 points and collect six assists in his short time on the floor, so losing him would be a huge blow to the Raptors.
Milwaukee, on the other hand, has lost four games in a row for the first time since the Raptors overcame a 2-0 deficit in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals to defeat the Bucks in six games. One of the main reasons for this lull by Milwaukee has been an injury to Jrue Holiday.
Toronto is beginning to look like the team everyone thought it could be in the preseason. However, this spot is just disastrous against a Bucks team that desperately needs a win. VanVleet is unlikely to explode for 33 points again in this one, especially if Lowry is held out and the Bucks can pay more defensive attention to him.
