Spread: MIL -8.5
Over/Under: 238.5

Introduction

The Orlando Magic (16-10) take on the Milwaukee Bucks (20-7) at the Fiserv Forum on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. CST. This preview covers team statistics, player performances, recent matchups, and a final prediction.

 

Team Analysis

Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic, currently fourth in the Eastern Conference, boast a 16-10 record. Paolo Banchero leads the team in scoring and has been instrumental in their success.

Player Spotlight: P. Banchero

Paolo Banchero is the Magic's leading scorer, averaging 21.0 points per game with an impressive 67.7% field goal percentage. His contributions on both ends of the court make him a key player for the Magic.

 

Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks, sitting second in the Eastern Conference, have dominated with a 20-7 record. Giannis Antetokounmpo, their star player, has been a force to reckon with.

Player Spotlight: G. Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks in scoring with an impressive 30.6 points per game. However, he is questionable for the upcoming game due to a right midfoot sprain, which could impact the Bucks' performance.

 

Injuries

Markelle Fultz is ruled out for the Orlando Magic until December 23. Joe Ingles is a game-time decision. Giannis Antetokounmpo and TyTy Washington Jr. are game-time decisions for the Milwaukee Bucks.

 

Recent Performances

The Magic suffered back-to-back losses against the Boston Celtics, and their road trip doesn't get easier with a visit to Milwaukee. The Bucks, on the other hand, secured a convincing win against the San Antonio Spurs.

Prediction

With Giannis Antetokounmpo listed as questionable due to a right midfoot sprain, the Milwaukee Bucks may face challenges in covering the +8.5 points spread against the Orlando Magic.

The Magic, led by Paolo Banchero, have shown resilience in recent games and could capitalize on any potential absence or limited playing time for Giannis. Expect the Magic to keep the game competitive and cover the spread.

Pick: Orlando Magic +8.5
