Orlando Magic vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Where: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI

When: Monday, December 9, 8:00 PM. ET.

The Milwaukee Bucks will be going for their 15th consecutive win when they take on the Orlando Magic on Monday night.

Magic Going For Fifth Consecutive Win

The Magic have flown under the radar this season, but they have played well and are only five games behind the Miami Heat in the Southeast Division. They have won their last four games and will be trying to make it five wins in a row when they face the Bucks on Monday night.

Orlando has struggled offensively this season, averaging 103 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range. They finished with 93 points in their win over Cleveland and will need to score more points if they want to snap Milwaukee’s winning streak.

Terrence Ross led the way for the Magic with 21 points and three rebounds. Evan Fournier finished with 18 points and two rebounds, while Aaron Gordon added 14 points and five rebounds for the Magic.

Orlando is one of the best defensive teams in the league, holding opponents to 102.6 points per game, which is second in the league. They held the Cavaliers to 87 points in their last game and will need a similar performance to get past the Bucks on Monday.

Bucks Trying To Avoid Letdown

The Bucks are coming off a big win over the Los Angeles Clippers in their last game, which gave them their 14th consecutive win. After a statement win like that, there is a tendency to let up against less-talented opponents, and the Bucks will be trying to avoid overlooking the Magic as they try to pick up their 15th consecutive win.

Milwaukee is the best offensive team in the league, averaging 121 points per game. The team is shooting 48 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range. They finished with 119 points against the Clippers and will need to continue playing well offensively if they want to keep their streak going.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks with 27 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists. Khris Middleton finished with 17 points, six rebounds, and five assists, while Pat Connaughton added 13 points and four rebounds for the Bucks.

Milwaukee has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 107.4 points per game. They held the Clippers to 91 points and are giving up 94.5 points per game in their last four games. If they continue playing well defensively, they should be able to pick up the win over the Magic.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

Milwaukee is the hottest team in the league and also has the best offense in the league, averaging 121 points per game. Even though Orlando has played well defensively, holding opponents to 102.6 points per game, the team will have a hard time slowing down the Bucks, who have scored at least 119 points in their last five games and are averaging 124.2 points per game in their last four games. The Magic will also have a hard time keeping up with the Bucks offensively with the team averaging 103 points per game and the Bucks giving up 107.4 points per game. With the Bucks winning seven of the last 10 games between the two teams and the Bucks defeating their last four opponents by an average of 33.2 points per game, the Bucks are the best bet here.

Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -12

Full-Game Total Pick

Rating:

The Bucks have been outstanding offensively, but they were slowed down by the Clippers, who held them to 119 points in their last game and will be slowed down by the Magic, who have held three of their last five opponents under 100 points. The Magic will also have a hard time scoring against the Bucks, who have held three of their last four opponents under 100 points and are giving up 94.5 points per game in their last four games. With the Bucks and Magic playing under the total in their last five meetings in Milwaukee, the under makes the most sense here.

Prediction: Under 209
