Bucks at Magic picks and predictions

Prediction

Bucks 122, Magic 111

Moneyline

AVOID.

The Bucks (-280) should secure the road victory assuming that Antetokounmpo plays, but taking them to win at the current odds isn’t advised.

Against the spread

BET BUCKS -6.5 (-120).

F Khris Middleton isn’t on the injury report for Tuesday’s matchup and the Bucks have been arguably the best team in basketball for over a month. Milwaukee is 8-0 ATS in its last 8 road games and Orlando is 0-4 ATS in its last 4 home games.

Over/Under

UNDER 233.5 (-110) is the lean in this showdown with the Magic having the 6th-worst offensive rating in the NBA. The Under has hit in 6 of the last 10 meetings between these teams.

The Bucks are 4-0 to the Under in their last 4 games playing on 1 day of rest, and the Magic are 5-0 to the Under in their last 5 games following a loss.
