Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks may have been the first to clinch a playoff spot but have no plans of slowing down. All cylinders are running for head coach Mike Budenholzer although preserving key players like Giannis Antetokounpo would be a good idea. Regardless, the Greek Freak is expected to spearhead the Bucks anew against the Raptors. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe are expected to do their part as well. The Bucks want to maintain their level of energy so that their players retain that killer instinct. Nothing would be sweeter than to pull off another win over the defending champions.

The Raptors are thinking the same thing, out to maintain their winning run against the Bucks. Morale is high following their 127-81 thrashing of the Pacers, something Bucks coach Budenholzer may need to look into. Though the Bucks have a deeper bench, the Raptors are expected to give them quite a game. Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry are expected to lead for head coach Nick Nurse anew as Toronto tires to solidify its hold at second spot out East.
