After a big win in Game 4, the Toronto Raptors travel to Milwaukee to try and gain the lead in Game 5.
They had really good service from their bench in Game 4, which has not really happened in the Playoffs so far.
Can they keep it up against a solid Milwaukee Outfit?
Here are some NBA Playoff Picks for May 23rd 2019.
Check out how we went last time these two sides met in our NBA Picks.
Toronto Raptors 2 @ Milwaukee Bucks 2
Prediction – Game Total Over 216.5
Milwaukee – 6.5
The Bucks were outplayed in Game 4 and will need to find something if they are going to win game 5. The trends would suggest they do.
Milwaukee has covered the Spread at 79% after a loss this season. They have the talent and scoring power to light it up at any time and also probably have the league MVP in Giannis.
They also cover at 64% as the home favourite and 66% after having a one day break.
If the Bucks get going and get an early lead at home, this game could be over fast. It is difficult to see the Raptors shooting as well and getting that much service from their bench in Game 5.
Game Totals also go over at 61% when Toronto are the Away Underdogs.
The Bucks should win this game in what may be a high scoring contest.
Brook Lopez + 10.5 Points
Lopez got off to a hot start in the early parts of the series and the Bucks will need him to step up in Game 5. He can score fast and won’t need many attempts to cover this number, because he can hit the three point shot.
Giannis Antetokounmpo + 26.5 Points
There is no way Giannis is going to play 3 average games in a row. He will be aggressive offensively and may have one of those nights where he fills up the stats sheet in a lot of statistical categories.
Norman Powell – 10.5 Points
Powell has had two big games, but there has been a consistency throughout his career and that is he is inconsistent. Seeing him put those numbers up again doesn’t seem likely and the under here may be a decent option.
