NBA Betting Trends


The Magic are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games, but just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a win.


The Bucks have covered in four straight games on two days rest and are 18-7-2 ATS in their last 27 Monday games.


Milwaukee thrashed Orlando back on Nov. 1, 123-91, in Orlando. The Magic like to try and limit possessions to win games, but that is hard to do against Milwaukee. The Bucks can score quickly and force the Magic into rushing themselves and play out of their routine. With Vucevic out, Orlando can’t really do much to man the paint either, so the Bucks should have their way with the Magic on both sides of the floor.
