Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Milwaukee Bucks vs Orlando Magic 11/01/2019 – The Milwaukee Bucks (2-2) will be trying to get back in the win column on Friday, as they take on the Orlando Magic (2-2) at Amway Center. NBA betting lines might be favoring the Bucks, who are considered one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, but blowing a 19-point lead to the Boston Celtics could indicate something is wrong with this team. The Magic, meanwhile, will look to keep grinding out victories after a 95-83 win over the New York Knicks.
