Toronto

The Raptors are 6-0 ATS in their last six games versus the Atlantic Division. Toronto is 4-1 ATS in its last five Saturday games.

Prediction:

Toronto has had several days off leading into this contest, while the Bucks are on a back-to-back with travel. Even though Milwaukee will be highly motivated for this game, I like that the Raptors have had rest and have played well thus far this season. I'm taking the points with the visitors.
