Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Friday afternoon, 51 percent of public bets have been placed on Milwaukee.

Injury Report: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry has lingering pain in his right wrist, but is expected to play through it tonight. Bucks forward Jabari Parker is targeting a mid-February return from a torn ACL. Mirza Teletovic has a knee injury and pulmonary emboli on both lungs which will keep him out indefinitely.

Who the Trends Like: Toronto is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in Milwaukee. The under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings and 6-0 in the last six meetings in Milwaukee. 

Who We Like: The Raptors defeated the Bucks on their home floor 131-127 in overtime just two days ago. It was a free-flowing game that showed the Toronto offense executing precisely and a Bucks defense that has not lived up to standards this season. Milwaukee has also enjoyed one of the better offenses in the NBA and I fully expect this game to once again turn into a scorefest. Roll with the over.
