The Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic meet Sunday in NBA action at the Kia Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Bucks vs Magic prediction.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have been doing it tough as they've lost five of their last seven games overall and they might still be nursing their wounds after getting thrashed by the Thunder in a 125-107 road defeat on Friday. Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez each scored 18 points, Malik Beasley added 17 points while Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 11 points off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot 49 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and were always fighting an uphill battle after getting outsored by 69-52 in the first half. The Bucks just got next to nothing from their bench as no reserve player scored more than eight points except for Gallinari.

Orlando Magic

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in a rut of their own as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting routed by the 76ers in a 125-113 road loss on Friday. Franz Wagner led the team with 24 points, Paolo Banchero added 22 points with 15 rebounds and seven assists while Jalen Suggs chipped in with 20 points. As a team, the Magic shot 45 percent from the field and eight of 27 from the 3-point line as they allowed the 76ers to get off to a flyer and could never recover after allowing 40 points in the first quarter to trail by as many as 17 points at one stage.

Bucks vs Magic prediction

The Bucks are still missing AJ Green and Giannis Antetokounmpo, while the Magic are keeping an eye on Wendell Carter Jr, who is questionable for this one. The Bucks really haven't been playing anywhere near their best lately, they are still banged up, and they just got smashed by the Thunder, while the Magic have cooled off recently with four losses in their past five games. The Bucks represent decent value as the underdogs here, but they've really struggled since Antetokounmpo went down, and I think the Magic are good enough to get the win and cover at home at this short line.
