Who’s Playing

Orlando @ Milwaukee

Current Records: Orlando 4-12; Milwaukee 8-8

What to Know

The Milwaukee Bucks are 20-6 against the Orlando Magic since November of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. They will face off at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 20 at Fiserv Forum without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Milwaukee has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency.

The Bucks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-89 on Friday. It was another big night for Milwaukee’s power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 19 boards along with seven assists.

Meanwhile, Orlando was close but no cigar on Friday as they fell 115-113 to the Brooklyn Nets. Orlando was up 41-25 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Shooting guard Jalen Suggs (21 points) was the top scorer for Orlando.

This next matchup looks promising for the Bucks, who are favored by a full 11.5 points. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past four games, so buyers beware.

Milwaukee’s victory lifted them to 8-8 while Orlando’s loss dropped them down to 4-12. We’ll see if Milwaukee can repeat their recent success or if the Magic bounce back and reverse their fortune.
