Orlando Magic vs Milwaukee Bucks 12/28/2019 Betting Odds
Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic pulled an upset victory at home against the Philadelphia 76ers in a tight battle, 98-97. The Magic were crashing the boards as Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon combined for 23 rebounds. Vucevic added 16 points and seven assists to his stat line while Gordon had 19 points. Jonathan Isaac had a bad game with only four points but Markelle Fultz and Terrence Ross each had good games to fill in Isaac’s void. This is a good jump start for the Magic and they were clicking on both ends. But the Bucks are the leaders in the NBA standings right now and they would need a perfect game to pull another upset in back-to-back days.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Bucks let Giannis Antentokuonmpo rest for their game against Atlanta and they came out with an outstanding 26-point win. Trae Young left the game in the first half with an injury and the Bucks smelled blood. Kris Middleton led the charge with 23 points, eight rebounds and seven assists while Ersan Ilyasova filled in for the “Greek Freak” as he finished with 18 points and 17 rebounds. The Lopez Twins had good games with Brook doing 18 points while Robin came off the bench with 10. This is the game that the Magic will have Giannis back and it just makes their chances bleak with the reigning MVP returning. This was a game that the Giannis’ supporting cast got to polish their game and that adds up to the Magic’s worries.
