Toronto At Milwaukee NBA Game 4 Winning Predictions

Posted by Henry Watkins on Friday,April 21, 2017 10:45, EDT in

Surprises and upsets are all part of the playoffs, but while we have all come to expect them, it’s still a bit of a shock when they arrive. The Toronto Raptors appeared to be a heavy favorite heading into their opening round series versus the Milwaukee Bucks, especially when you consider that they had won 7 of their last 8 regular season meetings with the Bucks. Things have not gone according to plan, though, and the Raptors now find themselves 2-1 down in the series heading into Game 4 in Milwaukee on Saturday afternoon. It’s not just the fact that they are down in the series that is so surprising here, but rather the way in which they have lost those two games. The Raptors offense has been held silent in both losses, and another defeat this weekend will put them on the brink of elimination. To say that this is a must win game for Toronto is putting things a little mildly, as they simply haven’t been doing enough in this series to dig out of a hole that deep. Find out more about the updated NBA betting odds here.

Why bet on the Toronto Raptors

This series has been an almost complete reversal of how things went between these two teams in the regular season. In 3 of the 4 games they played earlier this year, it was the Toronto Raptors who were winning big, as they won those meetings by an average of almost 15 PPG. In the 2 losses in this playoff series, the Raptors have managed just 83 and 77 points, respectively. What makes this all the more astonishing is that Toronto were averaging almost 107 PPG during the regular season. Their total lack of offense is hard to explain, but it’s also something that they are going to need to figure out quickly if they are to find a way back into this series.

Why bet on the Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks were good defensively during the regular season, landing in the top 10 in points allowed per game. The Bucks have an opportunity to take a serious grip on this series with another home win on Saturday afternoon, and you have to like their chances, given that they were 23-18 in their own building during the regular season. They are perhaps not a particularly great ATS pick, going 20-22 ATS at home in the regular season and playoffs combined. The T-Wolves are a 2-point favorite for this one, which is perhaps a little bit on the low side when you consider how well they have played to this point in the series.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

There is sure to be an air of desperation with the Raptors, and they will be looking to jump out to a fast start in hopes of getting the offense back on track. I think the Raptors will even the series up in a close one.
