Bucks at Raptors OddsShark Matchup Report

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo had his worst game of the postseason in Game 3, turning the ball over eight times and shooting just 5-for-16 from the field and 2-for-7 from the free-throw line before fouling out with only 12 points on the night.

Kris Middleton also had a terrible game going just 3-for-16 from the floor for nine points. Despite the ugly performances from the team’s top two offensive stars, the Bucks still managed to force two overtimes before eventually falling short in a 118-112 loss.

The Bucks only lost back-to-back games one time this season. Milwaukee is 22-1 SU and 19-4 ATS in 23 games off a loss.

Toronto Raptors Betting Notes

Kawhi Leonard has been at the center of most of Toronto’s big wins this postseason and Sunday was no exception. Leonard scored 36 points and added nine rebounds and five assists in the win.

Pascal Siakam also had a nice game with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Toronto’s defense looked more like its old self at home allowing only 96 points in regulation to one of the league’s most explosive offenses. The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against Milwaukee per the OddsShark NBA Database.

Bucks at Raptors Betting Total

Tuesday night’s total is set at 216 points. The UNDER is 11-5 in Toronto’s last 16 games.

Game 4 has the chance to define the series. If Milwaukee shakes off its rough offensive night and picks up a win in Toronto, it’s difficult to see the Raptors getting past Game 5 in Milwaukee, much less stealing three straight games to win the series. But if Toronto wins this one, the Raptors will have planted a legitimate seed of doubt and transformed the series into a best-of-three. This should be a good one.
