The Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic meet Saturday in NBA action at the Amway Center.

The Milwaukee Bucks look to keep the ball rolling after winning 16 of their last 20 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 117.6 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 43 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 26.4 points and 12.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 17.5 points and 4.1 assists. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Eric Bledsoe is dishing 5.6 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 76.3 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.1 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won seven of their last nine road games.

The Orlando Magic could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 103.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 20.2 points and 11.9 rebounds while Aaron Gordon is averaging 15.6 points and 7.6 rebounds. Evan Fournier is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.2 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have split their last eight home games.

The Bucks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bucks are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Orlando. The over is 5-2 in Magic last 7 home games. The under is 5-1 in Bucks last 6 overall.

The Milwaukee Bucks are not only the hottest and most consistent team in the league right now, but they're outscoring teams by an average of 13.4 points in their last five games and are an impressive 14-6 ATS this season when a favorite of seven of more points. The Orlando Magic are watching the wheels fall off right now and just gave up a monster lead to the Brooklyn Nets last night to lose in the final seconds. The Milwaukee Bucks have also beaten the Bucks by a combined 38 points in the last two meetings. I have no choice but to eat the chalk with the Bucks. 

Pick:
Milwaukee Bucks -8.5
