Milwaukee took Game 1 of the series on Saturday with a 97-83 victory as an 8-point underdog. The Bucks have won two straight over the Raptors, but Toronto is 3-2 overall and against the spread in five meetings with Milwaukee this season. Toronto is now 51-32 overall, 28-14 at home and 45-37-1 against the spread. Milwaukee is 43-40 overall, 20-22 on the road and 37-46 against the spread.

The Bucks used a big second half to get past the Raptors on Saturday. Milwaukee outscored Toronto 51-32 in the last two quarters of play. Toronto struggled to make shots, going to 27-of-75 from the field and 5-of-23 from 3-point land. The Bucks were 38-of-85 shooting in the win and 9-of-23 from 3-point land. Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee in the win with 28points and eight rebounds. The Bucks got some nice bench contributions as Greg Monroe had 14 points and 15 rebounds.

Bet on Bucks vs. Raptors

I expected the Raptors to roll in Game 1. While Toronto didn’t shoot the ball well, Milwaukee proved that it has grown as a team and has a lot more scoring options than just the Greek Freak. The Bucks won’t be lacking in confidence today and that should allow them to keep this game competitive with the Raptors.
