Bucks vs. Raptors Pick

NBA Predictions: Will DeRozan, Raptors race past Bucks? 1/1/18

Will the host Toronto Raptors cover the number as favorites tonight when they battle the Milwaukee Bucks? Game time is 7:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Raptors are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 216 points. Toronto opened as a 6.5-point fave, while the over-under has gone up from 214 points.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Monday afternoon, 56 percent of the public bets are coming in on the host Raptors.

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.
