Injury Report: Bucks forward Jabari Parker is recovering from a torn ACL and is targeting a mid-February return. Mirza Teletovic is out indefinitely after knee surgery and pulmonary emboli on both lungs. For Toronto, Serge Ibaka will return to action after missing last game due to a suspension for a violation of team rules.
Who the Trends Like: The over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings in Toronto, but the under is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings overall. Milwaukee is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six games versus a team with a winning straight up record. Toronto is 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus a team with a straight up losing road record.
Who We Like: Toronto is an astounding 13-1 at home this season, while Milwaukee is only 7-9 on the road. The Bucks have won their last two games, but this is an inconsistent team and the Raptors will be at full strength tonight. I like Toronto to win convincingly as it takes advantage of a Milwaukee defense that isn't as good as it should be.
