Toronto Raptors at Milwaukee Bucks

Fiserv Forum, 7.30pm (ET)

The Bucks have dropped to third in the Eastern Conference, losing two of their last three games as they continue to battle through injury to star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. The superstar has missed the last three games and is set to miss again on Tuesday night, leaving the Bucks with an uphill battle against the Raptors. 

Toronto have had an inconsistent season to date, maintaining a 20-24 record and sitting in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. They have been poor on the road, winning just 6 of their 19 games away from home and covering the spread in just nine of them. 

Like the look of the Bucks at home here despite the absence of Giannis. They have been a strong team at home this season, going 15-7 against the spread at the Fiserv Forum. Back them to cover the spread here.

Philadelphia 76ers at LA Clippers

The Clipper have won just three of their last seven games and have fallen to 6th place in the Western Conference. They are coming off a win against the Rockets in their last clash, but have a much harder test on Tuesday night as they host the in form 76ers. 

Philly have won seven of their last 10 and are coming off two straight wins over the Jazz and Lakers. After an early season filled with injuries, the 76ers finally have all of their stars in the line-up and have looked extremely dangerous due to that. 

The 76ers have been great against the spread this season, maintaining one of the best records in the league at 24-19-1. They start as slight 1 point favourites on the road and I think they cover that spread with the Clippers missing key players Paul George and John Wall.
