Milwaukee Bucks v Philadelphia 76ers
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic Prediction

This Eastern Conference clash sees the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center on Monday (December 5). On paper, this may not seem like an even matchup, considering the Bucks are 16-6 while the Magic are only 5-19, but let’s go through a few pieces of analysis for this game. The betting odds and predictions are given below:

The Bucks have been sensational this campaign. They combine brute force and finesse to a great degree. Jrue Holiday and Brook Lopez's skillset gels superbly with Giannis Antetokounmpo's sheer strength and speed, who has always been the spearhead for the Bucks system. The Bucks are a force to be reckoned with defensively. They only ship 108 points per game, which is the third-lowest tally in the league.

Giannis is still balling out at an incredible level. He is averaging a thirty-point triple-double, going 32-11-5 thus far.

The Magic have been horrendous this season, winning only five of their opening 24 games. They are currently in abysmal form, losing eight games in a row leading up to this matchup. They rank in the bottom five in offense and defense this campaign, scoring the second-lowest points per game (108)

Paolo Banchero has been the shining light in a very dim season for Orlando, as the rookie has been putting up great numbers. He is averaging 22-6-4 on a solid 55% true shooting.

The Bucks are incomparable when it comes to defensive competence. Coming up against one of the worst offenses in the league, the Bucks will be feeling very confident about winning this one. Giannis is coming off an outstanding 40-piece against the Lakers in a losing effort. He will be looking to bring Milwaukee back to winning ways with a big performance tonight.
