Why Bet The Toronto Raptors To Beat The Bucks
The Raptors had their first complete game after four lackluster showings to start the 2017 NBA Playoff season. An airing of grievances that would make George Costanza rage propelled the Toronto Raptors in the series lead, avoiding nearing playoff extinction.
After falling into a 2-1 hole, Toronto now leads the Milwaukee Bucks 3-2 in their best-of-seven first-round series and credits the sudden turnaround to the team clearing the air following its 27-point Game 3 loss.
"It was just a heated film session, a heated film session between coaches and players," small forward DeMarre Carroll said after Monday’s Game 5 win. "A lot of times when you get in a heated film session, it can go one of two ways — it can go bad or it could go good.
Toronto can’t defend Giannis Antetokounmpo for 48 minutes and their game plan may be to defend the other four bucks hard while looking to limit the Greek Freak.
The Raptors earned their Game 4 and Game 5 victories by a combined margin of 36 points.
Why Bet The Milwaukee Bucks To Beat The Raptors
The Bucks are in win or go home territory with Game 6 looming at home. One reason for optimism is the way the Bucks have played against favored Toronto, twice taking leads in the series before losing the last two games.
And the Raptors have never won three consecutive games in a playoff series.
More so, Antetokounmpo is averaging 21.8 points per game in this series, along 10.2 rebounds. The Raptors don’t have an answer for the 6’11 small forward. His seven foot wingspan is wreaking havoc on both ends of the court.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:
- The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on two days’ rest and 7-18-1 ATS in the last 26 conference quarterfinals.
- The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games, 6-2 ATS in their last eight games following a loss of more than 10 points and 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on two days’ rest.
- Head to head, the Raptors are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Milwaukee, the favorite is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the under is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.
