Toronto Raptors @ Milwaukee Bucks
Prediction Game Total Over 218.5
This game will more than likely be close and for the Game Total number the Over has to be considered even though this is a big playoff matchup.
The Last three times these two sides have played in Milwaukee the Combined average has been 237 and Milwaukee likes to play a fast-paced brand of basketball.
The Game Total also goes over the Number 63% of the time when Toronto is the away underdogs.
As for the result of the match, Milwaukee is dangerous at home this season and have one 82% of their games on their home court. It is difficult to pick which side will cover but the Bucks to win the match is the better option.
Giannis will be difficult to stop and the Bucks have been shooting the ball well. Brook Lopez might also make Marc Gasol Accountable because he can shoot the three-point shot.
The Bucks in a high scoring contest is the more likely option in what could be a close encounter.
Kawhi Leonard – 9.5 Rebounds
Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka have been getting decent numbers on the boards in recent games. This number does seem rather high so the under needs to be considered as Kawhi has averaged below this number all year.
Marc Gasol + 5.5 Rebounds
Gasol has been in form in recent games and is up against Lopez who is not a great rebounder. He should play close to 30 minutes and have plenty of chances to cover the number.
Kyle Lowry + 6.5 Assists
Lowry has not averaged a lot of points against the Bucks this year but has averaged around 8 assists in their 3 games. He will bring the ball up a lot and have plenty of chances to cover the number.
Eric Bledsoe + 4.5 Assists
Bledsoe is the Point Guard for the Bucks and should play a lot of munites in this game. For a point guard, this number does seem low because a lot of the offense gets run through Giannis. Bledsoe should get around 5 assists in this game.
Kris Middleton + 5.5 Rebounds
Middleton has had a good playoffs so far and has been good on the boards with Giannis needing some help. This is a fairly small number and he should cover it given he averages around this number for the season.
Nikola Mirotic + 10.5 Points
If the Bucks are struggling to score early, Mirotic will see minutes and expect him to get the green light to jack up the three ball. Will have plenty of chances to score in double figures in this encounter.
