The Toronto Raptors invade the Fiserv Forum to take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday night.

The Toronto Raptors have been in decent shape as they’ve split their last eight games overall and they will be aiming for a fourth straight victory after routing the Timberwolves in a 122-107 win last night. Fred VanVleet led the way with 28 points and seven assists, Pascal Siakam added 27 points with 10 rebounds and six assists while Gary Trent Jr. chipped in with 19 points and five stelas off the bench. As a team, the Raptors shot 53 percent from the field and nine of 27 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Timberwolves right from the start and poured in 66 points in the first half to take the early lead and they just never took their foot off the gas, outscoring the Timberwolves in every quarter.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in pretty good form as they’ve won five of their last seven games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back here after getting stopped in their tracks by the Pacers in a 139-123 loss on Thursday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 25 points, nine rebounds and five assists, Jrue Holiday tallied 19 points with 11 assists while Bobby Portis and Khris Middleton scored 16 points apiece. As a team, the Bucks shot 52 percent from the field and 11 of 32 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 40 points in the first quarter to take an early 14-point lead, only to get completely destroyed by 84-59 in the second half to suffer one of their worst losses of the season.

Looking at the betting trends, the Raptors are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days rest and 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a losing record.

Head to head, the under is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings overall, the Raptors are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and the Raptors are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Milwaukee.

The Raptors are still without Dalano Banton, while the Bucks are still missing Jae Crowder and Goran Dragic. The Raptors are starting to heat up now with three wins in a row and they were dominant against the Timberwolves in last night’s win, but the Bucks were on fire before they got stopped in their tracks by the Pacers on Thursday. The Bucks have all their key players healthy and they are coming off a rare loss, so I expect the Bucks to come out strong and just have too much firepower for the Raptors in this one.
