Both of these teams are coming off a back to back. The Raptors just got a close win in overtime vs the Knicks while the Bucks came from behind vs the Pacers to win. Everyone as of right now on the injury report for the Raptors is in.
The Bucks on the other hand just sent Middleton to the G-League today so he can continue to rehab his knee. As far as Giannis, it's hard for me to believe he won't be back today after being probable yesterday. I think they just aired on the side of caution and rested him vs a Pacers team missing Haliburton while also looking ahead for today's primetime matchup (Obviously would be a huge addition).
The Bucks have been strong at home with a record of 15-7 ATS which is 2nd in the NBA and have a record of 4-0-1 ATS with no rest. While the Raptors have been disappointing all year going 9-10 ATS on the Road.
With the Bucks being at home and the addition of Giannis, I look for them to use their size and continue to play great defense (3rd in League) to pull away and win by 5+.
*Giannis has been declared out. Line is now -2.5. I don't hate it there, they can still play good team basketball but obviously this changes things.
