The Orlando Magic play host to the Milwaukee Bucks once again at the Amway Center on Thursday night.

The Milwaukee Bucks have been in great shape lately as they’ve won seven of their past 10 games and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after routing the Magic in a 127-110 road win on Tuesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 28 points and six assists on 10 of 19 shooting, Khris Middleton added 21 points, Jrue Holiday added 18 points with 10 assists, while Bobby Portis chipped in with 19 points. As a team, the Bucks shot 55 percent from the field and 17 of 37 from the 3-point line as they dominated the first half to lead by as many as 29 points, before making a final push in the fourth quarter after the Magic cut the lead to just eight points.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 10 of their past 12 games and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game slide after getting stomped by the Bucks on Tuesday. Franz Wagner led the team with 38 points on 12 of 20 shooting, Wendell Carter Jr. added 19 points with 10 rebounds while Gary Harris chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Magic shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 39 from the 3-point line as they looked completely outmatched for most of the game before exploding for 37 points in the third quarter, but it wasn’t enough after falling into such a hole in the first half.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win of more than 10 points. The Magic are 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a double-digit loss at home.

Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall, the Bucks are 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and the Bucks are 7-0-1 ATS in the last eight meetings in Orlando.

The Magic were severely shorthanded in Tuesday’s loss and not much has changed as Jalen Suggs and Cole Anthony are expected to sit out once again. The Bucks are one of the few teams in the league that have their entire roster healthy and it just allows them to attack teams in waves like we saw on Tuesday. It’s always tough to beat the same team twice in a row, but the Bucks are 7-0-1 ATS in the last eight meetings in Orlando and the Magic are just too banged up right now to put up much of a fight.
