Although Toronto and all its bettors have been heartbroken with the last result with under 4 mins to play, I truly believe in the raptors to even the series 1-1 after tonight, Brook Lopez snapping in the 4th was unforeseen but better believe Raptors put Kawhi in for some LeBron timed mins this game, being that the 2 mins he was subbed out, Bucks went up on an 8-0 run, the bench did no favors for their lead yet I believe there will be much needed adjustments, I also believe in NBA milking out the series this year for more profits & the under with these two teams seems a little too good to be true hitting twice in a row especially with the spread being the same in game 1, two different matchups, but in the warriors first game it went under & warriors covered, than the 2nd game in the WCF Blazers covered yet it went over, I say the same goes for game 2 of ECF, Raptors dont squander a lead again if given the chance, and it goes over. Compared to Trailblazers, I at-lease believe Raptors and co. will be able to win a game on the road against their opponents, that moneyline is looking mighty fine but if you have youre doubts, tease it at 10+ points and over 212+ if possible. BOL
These are teams that have a great repution for being top defensive teams. Makes sense, but playoff series are all about adjustments and think this game goes over tonight. I think the Bucks (who have a top pace) play faster and I've seen the Raptors run with the best of them. I don't think we see the snails pace that we saw in the first game and most people are on the under because that's what they saw last time. I have a hard time believing in trends that this happened the first game so it's going to happen again and I'll take the over tonight.
Lopez o4.5r - feel like Toronto will continue being cold on offense giving more rebounds to a 7-footer who tends to drop back in the paint on defense.
Siakam u30pra - don't remember the regular season matchups but both teams want to conserve their stars' energy till the 4th quarter, so I feel like Siakam and Giannis will both defend each other. Siakam then expends more energy both on offense and defense, putting up less stats.
*** UNDER 217*** Milwaukee is too reliant on Giannis, and Toronto has a multitude of defenders to throw at him. Milwaukee's also coming off a week of rest so they could get quite rusty. Toronto has and will continue to play great team defense on the road, but Toronto's offense is basically just Kawhi being MJ-esque, with little contribution from anyone else. If my assessment is correct this should be a low-scoring game and a defensive team like Toronto will stay in it till the end. Toronto and UNDER.
What a wild cover in game 1 for the Bucks. The Raptors definitely had their chances in Game 1 and even had a considerable lead in the fourth quarter before falling apart at the end. While Toronto likely wont see everyone but Lowry go zero for a quarter like they did in Game 1, I don't think Lowry will have that kind of shooting night again. While the Bucks had their own hero in Brooke Lopez, they showed how tough it is to beat the bucks even when they werent firing on all cylinders. Look for the Bucks to put together a complete game here to cover and a 2-0 series lead.
