The Bucks have been profitable in bounce backs spots, not just this season. Can they continue with this trend in a crucial Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Raptors?

<p>The Raptors crushed the Bucks 120-102 in Game 4 to even the series 2-2 but as we head to Game 5 in Milwaukee it's important to point out that the Bucks tend to get back on track after a loss, especially if it was by double-digits.</p><p>Milwaukee is 22-2 (91.7 percent) straight up and 19-5 (79.17 percent) against the spread after a loss this season, including 6-0 straight up and against the spread coming off a double-digit loss, covering the spread by 12.8 points per game.</p><p>The team's success bouncing back is the best of any <a href="" target="_blank">NBA</a> team since 2004-05. The Bucks are 19-5 ATS after a loss in that span, for a 79.17 winning percentage with the 2008-09 Cavaliers coming in second with a 15-4 ATS record following a loss (78.95 percent).</p><p>Milwaukee's impressive ATS record after a loss this season has a 53.9 percent Return on Investment (ROI), second-highest since 2004-05 behind the 55.6 percent ROI of the 2008-09 Cavaliers.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;&lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#WeTheNorth&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@sergeibaka&lt;/a&gt; (17 PTS, 13 REB), &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@npowell2404&lt;/a&gt; (18 PTS, 4 3PM) , &amp;amp; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@FredVanVleet&lt;/a&gt; (13 PTS, 6 AST) come up big off the &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@Raptors&lt;/a&gt; bench in the Game 4 W! &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#NBAPlayoffs&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Game 5: Thursday (5/23), 8:30pm/et, TNT &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— NBA (@NBA) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;May 22, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</div><div> </div><p>The Toronto bench outscored the Milwaukee reserves 48-23 in Game 4 and Khris Middleton's game-high 30 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo's 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists were simply not enough and the Bucks missed nine free-throws and had 12 turnovers.</p><p>Key contributors like Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, George Hill, Brook Lopez and Nikola Mirotic have to show up tonight or the Raptors will steal home court advantage.</p><p>The sportsbooks monitored by <a href="" target="_blank">SBR Odds</a> favor the Bucks by 7 points for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.</p><p>Here's what you need to know before betting the rest of this series:</p><p><strong><u>Eastern Conference Finals Series Odds: No. 1 Milwaukee Bucks vs. No. 2 Toronto Raptors<br />(Courtesy of <a href=";a=f3f21e61-d9f3-4f0e-b0e8-170a0846bc18&amp;f=3" target="_blank">BetOnline</a>)</u></strong></p><p>Toronto Raptors: +240</p><p>Milwaukee Bucks: -285</p><p><strong><u>Odds to Win the NBA Championship</u></strong></p><p>Warriors -240</p><p>Bucks +275</p><p>Raptors +1000</p><p><strong><u>Series Price for Potential Warriors vs. Bucks NBA Finals</u></strong></p><p>Warriors -240</p><p>Bucks +200</p><p><strong><u>Series Price for Potential Warriors vs. Raptors NBA Finals</u></strong></p><p>Warriors -375</p><p>Raptors +315</p><p><strong><u>Bucks vs. Raptors Results and Schedule</u></strong></p><p>Game 1: Bucks won 108-100</p><p>Game 2: Bucks won 125-103</p><p>Game 3: Raptors won 118-12</p><p>Game 4: Raptors won 118-12</p><p>Game 5: Thursday, May 23 at 8:30 PM ET</p><p>Game 6: Saturday, May 25 at 8:30 PM ET (If necessary)</p><p>Game 7: Monday, May 27 at 8:30 PM ET (If necessary)</p><p><strong><u>Bucks vs. Raptors Season Head-to-Head Stats</u></strong></p><p>Bucks won the regular season series: 3-1</p><p>Bucks Net Rating: 7.1</p><p>Bucks Offensive Rating: 108.6</p><p>Bucks Defensive Rating: 101.5</p><p>Raptors Net Rating: -7.1</p><p>Raptors Offensive Rating: 101.5</p><p>Raptors Defensive Rating: 108.6</p><p><strong><u>Bucks vs. Raptors Series Correct Score Odds<br />(Courtesy of <a href=";book=JAZZ" target="_blank">Jazz Sports</a>)</u></strong></p><p>Bucks to win series 4-2: +400</p><p>Bucks to win series 4-3: +500</p><p>Raptors to win series 4-2: +155</p><p>Raptors to win series 4-3: +125</p><p><strong><u>When Will the Series Finish?</u></strong></p><p>Game 6: -120</p><p>Game 7: -125</p>
