Over 213 (2u)
The Bucks had the 2-0 advantage and the chance in double overtime to go up 3-0 and take the stranglehold of this series but couldn’t get it done and Toronto hasn’t looked back since. The Raptors won three straight games and at this point of the season getting momentum back on the road is next to impossible.
The Bucks have the more talented roster but they don’t have a Kawhi Leonard type clutch player who has the playoff experience to take over late in the fourth quarter which has been the difference. Toronto is getting better production from their bench and at home tonight all of the cards are stacked in their favor. That said despite some real lackluster play in the last two games, I still think the Bucks are the better team and they will put their best foot forward here. I just can’t see them laying three straight duds.
We are even on this series after going 2-0 first two games then 0-2 the past two giving back all units won. The side is a total tossup tonight and I am tired of losing money on these underperforming Bucks but I do like the over. It’s time for coach Mike Budenholzer and the Bucks to make some adjustments. Milwaukee still has the better team and the Raptors shot just 38 percent from the field but hit 18 three-pointers, thanks to Fred VanVleet, who hit seven of them. They have shot well in three straight games and no reason why they can’t continue that at home where they have excelled. Milwaukee has too much firepower to keep underperforming offensively and will make the correct adjustments tonight. The Bucks only chance to win tonight is to score around 110+ and the Raptors should score around that. We are getting a little value with this being a closeout game with the total shaded to the under. The Bucks last 9 games on the road are 8-1 on the Overs, and on the road against winning teams 14-3 on Overs. Both games in Toronto have went over the total. Take the over.
