Date/Time: 02-10-2018, 19:00 EDT
Spread: Orlando Magic +4.5
Magic have an 18-36 record (22-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the second to last place of the East. They have three consecutive wins and in their last game they won at home against the Hawks with a 100-98 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Aaron Gordon with 18.4 ppg, adding 8.3 rebounds per game but he is out with an injury. He is followed by Evan Fournier with 17.9 ppg, while Nikola Vucevic adds 17.4 ppg and a team high 9.3 rebounds per game but he is injured as well.
Bucks have a 30-24 record (23-26-5 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 5th place of the East. In their last game they saw a three-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Heat with an 85-91 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Giannis Antetokounmpo with 28 ppg, adding team highs both in rebounding with 10.4 per game and in assists made with 4.7 per game. He is followed by Khris Middleton with 20.1 ppg, 5.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season, Bucks won at home with a 110-103 score. Magic are 11-14 at home so far this season, while Bucks are 12-15 on the road. Magic are better offensively, scoring 105.7 ppg to Bucks’ 104.3, while Bucks are better defensively, allowing 104.3 ppg to Magic’s 109.9. Bucks have a better field goal percentage, shooting with 47.74% to Magic’s 46.12%, while Magic have a better 3-point percentage, shooting with 35.65% to Bucks’ 34.97%. Magic are also better in rebounding, grabbing 41.4 to Bucks’ league-low of 39.1 and in assists made, with 23.3 to Bucks’ 22.3. Magic are coming in this game hot and Vegas odds give the Bucks a -4.5 spread, which they are not expected to beat as Magic will force a closer game than that or even get away with the home victory.
