Predictions For Betting On Magic Bucks – Bucks Look To Take Advantage Of Free Falling Magic Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/31/2013 6:09:45 PM

With just two sports betting wins in its past 21 games, no team in the NBA is colder right now than the Orlando Magic. For a Milwaukee Bucks’ team trying to make the playoffs, the chance to host the Magic this Saturday is an opportunity they can’t afford not to capitalize on. Milwaukee can bounce back at home following a loss to the Chicago Bulls in front of their home fans earlier in the week, and with the chance to move one step closer to clinching a playoff spot the time is now to step up.

The Magic has certainly let their share of opportunities slip away during their recent slide, but back-to-back losses to Brooklyn and New York were an obvious step back. Orlando has been particularly bad on the road at nine games below .500, and are just three games above the Charlotte Bobcats for the worst record in the East.

After showing flashes early on with their competitiveness and fighting style, the Magic have completely fallen apart since the start of 2013. Orlando has fallen towards the bottom of the NBA in points allowed, and looked completely overwhelmed in back-to-back blowout losses to the Nets and Knicks. Arron Afflalo has shown his worth with a team-high 16.7 points per game while Jameer Nelson and JJ Redick remain threats on the perimeter, but the lack of an inside presence has left them exposed at both ends of the floor. Glen Davis still isn’t ready to handle the starting job and may never be, and for an online sportsbook team built around an All-Star center these past couple of years it is a hole that needs to be filled.

The Bucks haven’t had much of a scoring presence inside themselves this season with Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis carrying the load from the perimeter, but Larry Sanders and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute have made it tough for opponents to have their way with them inside. Milwaukee ranks in the top-10 in the NBA in rebounding, and that has helped them when their scorers have struggled. Mike Dunleavy has helped provide a spark when the team goes small, but this team does not win when leading scorers Jennings and Ellis aren’t on their games.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

With the chance to take on the NBA’s coldest team, the Bucks need to be able to capitalize and earn a crucial win in front of their home fans. Milwaukee has managed to survive and remain in the race despite playing inconsistent basketball at times, but if they can take advantage of their opportunities against lesser teams down the stretch they should be able to lock up a playoff spot.
