Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks are riding a three-game winning streak and they were able to beat the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans and the latest were the Philadelphia 76ers by 11 points. It if was not for the loss against the Denver Nuggets, this team could have been in a 13-game winning streak. Giannis Antentokuonmpo is a man on the mission as he leads the MVP candidates once again but the bigger prize is what he wants. He is surrounded by players who complement his game style and the results are that they are leading the NBA in the overall standings. Against the Magic, they are expected to win and aside of having the reigning MVP in their team, they boast one of the deepest rosters in the league.

Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic continue to struggle and they are coming from back-to-back loses. If it was not for the win against the Charlotte Hornets, this team could have been on an eight-game skid. Nikola Vucevic is like the poor man’s Nikola Jokic in the NBA Eastern Conference but the difference is that the Magic has a young core of players that need some veteran presence to help them close out the games. Evan Fournier has been the team’s leading scorer but they need more from other players and Markelle Fultz just have to mature faster if this team wants to compete.
Players to Watch: E. Fournier SG 50 GP 50 GS 31.5 MIN 18.7 PTS 0.2 OR 2.4 DR 2.7 REB 3.3 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 2 TO 2.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 16.6 PER
