    Ranking every NBA playoff series by upset potential

    6. Toronto Raptors (3) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (6)
    The Bucks probably look a little friskier as an underdog than they really are by virtue of outperforming their point differential after the All-Star break. Milwaukee went 17-10 while getting outscored by 1.1 points per game.

    Toronto, meanwhile, went 18-7 after the break despite not getting All-Star guard Kyle Lowry back in the lineup until last week. The Raptors, who sport the Eastern Conference's best point differential (plus-4.2 ppg), should be comfortable favorites.

    Upset probability: 13 percent

    Games are gonna be close, but experience will allow this to be a shorter series.

    I like Toronto in 5 with the Bucks getting a close one at home. Milwaukee is too young to hang with the Raptors much longer than that.

    I got +1000 odds on Toronto to win the East yesterday and they're down to +750 today. I think if any team can take it to a struggling Cleveland, it's Toronto.

    The Raptors will win a 4-0 series against the Bucks and then lose to the Cavs in next round 0-4.

    Kyle Lowry is going to massacre the Milwaukee youth... He is a beast, and Demar and Serge are more than enough help to get it done.

    What a bad luck. It's impossible for me to watch the first game. Right on time of Easter midnight when it's time to eat the roasted lamb.

    Raptors fans are the best fans in the league. Say what you will but we the north has consistently supported that team. They love that team.
