Date/Time:  03-14-2018, 18:00 EDT

Spread: Orlando Magic +8

Total: +209.5

Magic have a 20-47 record (32-34-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Hawks in the last place of the East. They have four consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Spurs with a 72-108 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Aaron Gordon with 18.3 ppg, adding 8.4 rebounds per game. He is followed by Evan Fournier with 17.8 ppg (who is out indefinitely), while Nikola Vucevic adds 17.2 ppg and a team high 9.1 rebounds per game.

Bucks have a 36-31 record (27-35-5 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 7th place of the East. They have back-to-back wins and in their last game they won on the road against the Grizzlies with a 121-103 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Giannis Antetokounmpo with 27.1 ppg, adding team highs both in rebounding with 10.1 per game and in assists made with 4.7 per game. He is followed by Khris Middleton with 19.9 ppg, 5.2 rebounds and 4 assists per game.

Bucks have won both previous meetings against the Magic earlier this season (by 7 points both at home and on the road). Magic are 13-18 at home so far this season, while Bucks are 15-17 on the road. Bucks are better both offensively, scoring 105.1 ppg to Magic’s 104.7 and defensively, allowing 105.3 ppg to Magic’s 109.5. Bucks have a better field goal percentage, shooting with 47.72% to Magic’s 45.86%, while Magic have a better 3-point percentage, shooting with 35.82% to Bucks’ 35.43%. Magic are better in rebounding, grabbing 41 to Bucks’ league-low of 39.6 and in assists made, with 23.4 to Bucks’ 22.4. Bucks are the favorite and in desperate need for an easy win. Vegas odds give them a -8 spread and expect them to beat those odds for an easy road victory against a team without any incentive tonight and the rest of the season.
