Spread: Milwaukee Bucks -5.5 (-110) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

It is sure to be a hard-fought game when the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks face off. The Bucks enter this game on a win while also winning six of their last 10 games. The Toronto Raptors have been less successful as of late, splitting their last 10 games but entering this game off a win.

It was a tightly contested, defensive affair the last time the Toronto Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks faced off. Milwaukee shot just 39.8% from the field and 33.3% from three-point range, despite being led by Giannis Antetokounmpo's 30-point, 21 rebounds, and 10 assist effort. The Toronto Raptors took a different approach, with their starting lineup accounting for 93% of their team's total points.

Once again, the Milwaukee Bucks' bench production should be the difference-maker when they take on the Toronto Raptors. However, if the Bucks enter this game without Antetokounmpo for the second straight game it is definitely worth considering your wager. Keep an eye on the injury report!
