Toronto vs. Milwaukee,

Score: 105 - 115
Total: -110/+226 Under
10* Under Raptors/Bucks (8:05 ET): This is an early season rematch of LY's Eastern Conference Finals where the Raptors eliminated the top-seeded Bucks 4 games to 2 en route to their 1st ever NBA Championship. Toronto won the final four games of that series after going just 1-5 against Milwaukee (including regular season) previously. While I wouldn't say the Bucks are off to a great start to this year, they did just blow out Orlando last night 123-91. That was a disappointing result for us (had the Magic), but in the second night of a B2B, I don't expect the Bucks to score as much. Take the Under here.
Toronto also went Over in its last game, a 125-113 win over Detroit. The Raptors are 4-1 SU/ATS, the only loss coming by six points at Boston. They've since rattled off three wins in a row, all by comfortable margins. Before blitzing the Pistons w/ near 60% shooting, the Raptors had been "doing it w/ defense" as they'd held their first four opponents to around 37% shooting from the field and their previous two both under 100 points. It's still early, but the Raptors rate 6th in defensive efficiency. Their shooting is a lock to come down from the last game and leading scorer Pascal Siakam is going to have to deal w/ guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Bucks allowed a season-low in points last night, but they also have yet to allow any opponent to shoot better than 45.5% from the field. Toronto had not shot the ball particularly well its first four games. So while its easy to write off Milwaukee's defensive performance last night as a byproduct of "facing Orlando" (who has yet to score 100 pts in a game this season and also plays at the slowest pace), I think they'll do a solid job at containing the defending NBA Champs here. Both teams are 4-1 Under when coming off a DD win. 10* Under Raptors/Bucks
