The Bucks are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Magic are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Orlando and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
Both of these teams could be better than their record, as there's been a lot of close losses from both sides. However, I have more confidence in the Magic at home than I do the Bucks on the road. Not to mention the home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Bucks and Magic.
