The Bucks have been up and down lately and have lost 2 of the last 3 games without Giannis but he's listed questionable for this game. Toronto has won 4 of the last 5 games and are full healthy for this game. They lost in overtime by only 3 points against the Bucks on the road earlier this season so I expect them to keep this game really close. The Raptors are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee so take them with the points.
PICK: Raptors +4.5 (-110)
