Through 2 Quarters

The Milwaukee Bucks were expected to win this one, and so far that’s exactly how it’s playing out. They are in control with a 79-36 lead over the Orlando Magic.

The Bucks have been relying on small forward Pat Connaughton, who has 14 points and two assists along with four rebounds and two steals, and point guard Jrue Holiday, who has 15 points and two assists in addition to five boards and two steals. Orlando hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to eight points or fewer.

If the contest were over at this point, it would be Orlando’s worst margin of defeat yet this season.

Who’s Playing

Current Records: Orlando 4-13; Milwaukee 9-8

What to Know

The Milwaukee Bucks will look to defend their home court on Monday against the Orlando Magic at 8 p.m. ET. The Bucks are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

Milwaukee is hoping for another win. They beat Orlando 117-108 this past Saturday. It was another big night for Milwaukee’s power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who posted a double-double on 32 points and 20 boards in addition to five dimes.

Milwaukee is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past five games.

Milwaukee’s victory lifted them to 9-8 while Orlando’s defeat dropped them down to 4-13. We’ll see if Milwaukee can repeat their recent success or if the Magic bounce back and reverse their fortune.
