The Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks meet Friday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Raptors vs Bucks prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been ice-cold as they’ve lost 17 of their last 18 games overall and they will be hoping to put a halt to a 15-game slide after getting thrashed by the Timberwolves in a 133-85 road defeat on Wednesday. Immanuel Quickley, Gradey Dick and Javon Freeman-Liberty each scored 16 points, Jordan Nwora added 14 points with 13 rebounds and five assists while Jalen McDaniels chipped in with 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Raptors shot just 36 percent from the field and seven of 30 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and just never looked threatening in this one after falling behind by 16 points in the first half before things got really ugly in the second half.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have really cooled off lately as they’ve lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting beaten by the Grizzlies in a 111-101 loss on Wednesday. Brook Lopez led the team with 25 points and 10 rebounds on nine of 14 shooting, Giannis Antetokounmpo added 21 points with seven rebounds, eight assists and five blocks, while Bobby Portis chipped in with 19 points off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot just 40 percent from the field and 18 of 44 from the 3-point line as they traded baskets with the Grizzlies for three closely contested quarters, before they fell victim to an 11-1 run by the Grizzlies in the fourth quarter to suffer their second straight loss.

Milwaukee Bucks Team Facts

  • The Bucks have won each of their last 11 home games against Eastern Conference opponents following a loss.
  • The Bucks have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven games against the Raptors after losing as favorites.
  • Each of the Bucks’ last four games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Toronto Raptors Team Facts

  • The Raptors have lost each of their last 15 games.
  • The Raptors have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Raptors’ last four games have gone OVER the total points line.

Raptors vs Bucks prediction

The Raptors are still missing a bunch of players including Scottie Barnes, and they have Gary Trent Jr, Bruce Brown and Ochai Agbaji all listed as questionable. The Bucks are keeping eyes on Damian Lillard, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Patrick Beverley, who are all questionable. Even if the Bucks are missing some players, you’d expect them to still win this one with ease at home, but they’ve been playing well below their best lately and shouldn’t be favored by this many points against anyone. It’s never fun backing the Raptors, but I think they can hang around long enough to get the cover here.
