The Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic collide at the Amway Center on Monday night.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been in fine form as they’ve won five of their last six games and they will be eager to stay hot after sneaking past the Hornets in a 105-96 road win on Saturday. Bobby Portis led the team with 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, Jordan Nwora added 17 points on seven of 11 shooting while Brook Lopez and Jevon Carter each scored 14 points. As a team, the Bucks shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they kept the Hornets in check early on to build a 14-point lead which proved to be more than enough despite the Bucks playing without key players, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton who were all rested.
Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 10 of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to put a halt to an eight-game losing streak after getting routed by the Raptors in a 121-108 road loss on Saturday. BolBol led the team with 18 points on seven of eight shooting, Terrence Ross added 18 points on seven of seven shooting while Cole Anthony chipped in with 12 points and five assists. As a team, the Magic shot 48 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line, but they weren’t switched on defensively and were always fighting an uphill battle after falling behind by double-digits in the first quarter and by as many as 33 points in the third quarter.
Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games following a win. The Magic are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games, 0-6 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall.
Head to head, the over is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings in Orlando, the Bucks are 8-2-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall and the Bucks are 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Orlando.
The Bucks could be shorthanded once again as Brook Lopez, Grayson Allen and Serge Ibaka are all questionable, while the Magic have ruled out Chuma Okeke, Gary Harris and Jalen Suggs with Mo Bamba listed as questionable. The line is quite hefty here, but the Magic have been in terrible form, they’re banged up and they are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games. The Bucks are also 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Orlando, so I’ll stick with the Bucks in this spot.
