The Bucks lost Game 4 by 18 points. This is just the seventh time the Bucks lost a game by 10 or more points this season. Following the previous six occurrences, the Bucks went 6-0 against the spread, covering by 12.8 points per game. — John Ewing

History suggests the Bucks will bounce back in Game 5. Since 2005, teams that are favored at home in the playoffs after losing their previous game by at least 10 points have returned a profit of $2,960 for a $100 bettor. This system has been even more profitable in the Conference and NBA Finals, going 25-11 (69%) ATS.

For just the second time during the 2018-19 season, the Milwaukee Bucks have lost consecutive games. It last occurred back in March on the road against the Jazz and Suns. In their next game, the Bucks returned home and beat the Pacers 117-98 as a 10-point favorite. — Evan Abrams

The Raptors have won two straight games against the Bucks to even up the Eastern Conference Finals. In Game 5, the Raptors are listed as seven-point underdogs on the road in Milwaukee.

Since 2005, teams that have won at least two consecutive games entering a playoff game and are listed as an underdog in their next game are 142-184-8 (43.6%) ATS, failing to cover by an average of 1.8 points per game. When the next game played is Games 5-7 of a playoff series, the team on the two-game-plus winning streak is 31-48-1 (39.2%) ATS, failing to cover by 3.5 points per game
