The Milwaukee Bucks are 8-1 straight up and against the spread through their first nine games of the 2019 postseason. The Bucks will try to build on a four-game winning streak when they host the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
Milwaukee is a 6-point home favorite on the NBA odds for Game 1 of the Eastern Finals at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. In their last five games against the Raptors, the Bucks are 4-1 SU and ATS.
Toronto Raptors Notes
Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 buzzer beater over the Philadelphia 76ers will enjoy a place in history as one of the most dramatic shots of all time. Leonard’s off-balance prayer looked short before it took an unbelievable series of bounces and eventually rolled in for the win.
That basket brought Leonard’s scoring total in the game to 41 and capped off an incredible series that saw the star forward average 34.7 points and 9.9 rebounds per game. Toronto is 5-3 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight games as a road underdog per the OddsShark NBA Database.
Raptors at Bucks Betting Total
Wednesday night’s total is set at 217.5 points at online betting sites. The OVER is 5-2 in the last seven games between Toronto and Milwaukee.
The Bucks had the best record in the NBA during the regular season and now through the first two rounds have the best record in the postseason. Milwaukee has been so good on both sides of the court this season that it will probably take a lot more Kawhi Leonard magic for Toronto to pull off the upset in this series.
