Bucks vs. Raptors Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Raptors hold off upset-minded Bucks? 2/23/18

Are the host Toronto Raptors going to continue their home court dominance tonight when they play the Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Raptors are a 7.5-point favoirte on the spread line. The total is set at 216 points. The spread has gone up slightly from Toronto opening as a 7-point fave, while the total has moved up from 213.5.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

As of Friday afternoon, 60 percent of public bets have sided with the Raptors. Online wager info also shows that 73 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

Toronto has been fantastic on its home floor this season with a 24-4 straight up record, while Milwaukee is 13-15 on the road. Toronto has won both meetings this season, winning 131-127 in overtime on the road New Year's Day, while adding a 129-110 victory at Milwaukee four days later. The Raptors have covered the spread in three of the last four meetings, while it is even at 5-5 ATS over the last 10 matchups. The under has gone 6-4.

I just can't turn away from what Toronto has done at home this season. Not only are they beating teams, but very often doing it handily while resting starters in the fourth quarter. While the Bucks are a team on the rise, they are still inconsistent and not yet in the league of a team such as the Raptors. As long as the Raptors can keep Giannis Antetokounmpo from having a monster game, I like Toronto to win another game by plenty of points at home.
