The Bucks are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Magic are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 28-9 in Bucks last 37 road games. The under is 9-3 in Magic last 12 overall. The Bucks are 8-1-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Orlando and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks obviously have the ability to blow the doors off here, but they could be without Holiday and Antetokounmpo is still playing through injuries. The Orlando Magic are also a feisty bunch that continues to cover games for the most part and has a handful of surprise victories. The Magic lose as underdogs by an average of 2.5 points and at home by an average of 1.2 points. Give me the points.
