Milwaukee Bucks vs Toronto Raptors betting tips and predictions for Thursday’s clash in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks are aiming to win their 9th game in a row as they travel to Canada to face off with losers of 3 games in a row the Toronto Raptors. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Fresh off their 127-125 win over the Charlotte Hornets, the defending champions are back on the road where they are 7-4 SU on the season. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a massive night with 40 points, 12 boards and 9 assists plus the winning layup basket and the Bucks now have the 2nd longest win streak in the NBA. A total of 7 Milwaukee players scored in double figures and as a team they finished the game with 29 assists. Now they turn their attention to Toronto against who they have only 3 wins in the last 10 meetings. Interestingly enough the Bucks are just 3-7 ATS in the last 10 head-to-head, but that record could improve tonight as they’ve been really good on the road covering in 7 of their last 10 outings. There’s still no word on Brook Lopez or Dante DiVincenzo returning, plus Sami Ojeleye is questionable with a calf problem.#
The Raptors are one of the worst home teams in the NBA this season with just 2 wins in their first 10 games. They are currently on a 3 game losing streak, with two of those games being in their own arena. The Memphis Grizzlies beat them 98-91 two nights ago, as they failed to reach the 100-point mark for the 3rd game in a row. This team is really missing their leading scorer OG Anunoby who has been out for a while now with a hip injury, he is officially questionable for tonight’s game. Gary Trent Jr. could also miss this one with a calf injury. The Raptors are just 1-6 SU in their last 7 games vs Eastern Conference teams, they’ve also failed to cover the spread in 6 straight games at home.
I’m surprised the oddsmakers favor the Bucks only by 5 points here, they did play last night but this team has a ton of momentum right now. They’ve covered in 4 of their last 5 and against a struggling Raptors team they should have no issues. Bucks to cover.

Milwaukee -4.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365
Last night’s game against the Hornets was an anomaly, as the Bucks allowed 125 points which is something we’re not used to seeing from them. Their last 13 of 19 games have all gone under the total, including 5 of their last 7 played in Toronto. In the last 10 meetings the O/U numbers are 3-7 between these two squads and they are scoring 216.1 points per game. Raptors have been struggling scoring the ball, in their last 3 games they’ve put up 97, 97 and 91 points against not so good defensive teams. They play the 28th fastest pace in the NBA, while the Bucks are 6th in that department. Toronto ranks 28th in defensive rebounding, Giannis will have a big night on the boards here. I think the Bucks win this one by keeping the Raptors under 100. Back the under.
