The Milwaukee Bucks travel across the border to Toronto to take on the Raptors in an Eastern Conference battle on Wednesday Night.
Fresh off of a win last night, where Giannis Antetokounmpo carried the Bucks past the Wizards with 55 points and 10 rebounds, the Bucks are right back at it again.
The Raptors are fighting to turn things around right now after a tough beginning to the season and get a turn at the Bucks in their home arena tonight.
Here is my analysis, a game prediction, and my favorite player prop of the game!
Giannis on a Tear but Is it Enough?
The Greek Freak has been going insane for the past 2 weeks.
Giannis is averaging almost 40 points per game his last 5 games and has 40+ points in 5 of his last 7 games.
He has been going absolutely insane but the Bucks are 4-6 in their last 10.
Being without Kris Middleton and Jrue Holiday being in and out of the lineup have been the main culprit there, and until the Bucks have their full compliment of weapons, it might be much of the same.
Without Holiday and Ingles tonight, the Bucks will have to rely heavily on Giannis yet again and will hope for slightly better results.
The Raptors Struggles Continue
It has been a less than ideal start to the season for the boys in Toronto.
They have lost 7 of their last 10 games, and they just haven’t looked in sync all season, offensively but especially defensively.
The Raptors have been known for their stingy defense over the last couple of seasons, especially at home, but that has been severely lacking this year.
One positive for the Raptors is the play of Pascal Siakam. Spicy P has been playing great, scoring 26+ points in 7 of his last 8 games but (more on this later).
In this battle of 2 Eastern conference foes, who is going to come out on top north of the border?

- Bucks (+160)

- Over 225 (-110)
- Under 225 (-110)
I love this spot for the Raptors at home tonight, and expect Siakam to carry this team tonight to a big win.
I expect Giannis to have a massive game yet again but I don’t think it will be enough from the rest of the lineup to keep it close.
I like this spot for the Raptors to take advantage on a Bucks team on a back-to-back and get a big Eastern Conference win at home.
Raptors -4.5 (-110)
Bucks +4.5 (-110)
Player Prop of the Game
Pascal Siakam o25.5 Points (-120)
As I mentioned Spicy P has been one of the lone bright spots for the Raptors this year and I think that continues tonight.
He has 26+ points in 7 of his last 8 games and has 30+ in his last 2 matchups against the Bucks.
I love Siakam to have a big game once again tonight and carry the Raptors on offense!
Happy New Year! Enjoy this game and all the other NBA games on tonight!
