February 08, 2020, 5:00 PM ET at Amway Center (400 W Church St #200, Orlando, FL 32801). In today’s match, two representatives of the Eastern Conference will meet: unconditional leader Bucks and Magic – a team on the verge of relegation from the playoff zone.
Milwaukee continues to smash its rivals. It seems that no one in the East will be able to catch up with them. Sometimes the Bucks misfire, but after that, as a rule, they play even better. 44 wins in 51 matches, 9 out of the last 10 games, win streak of 3. We think that the Mike Budenholzer’s team is one of the clear favorites for the finals.
Bucks did not prove themselves in the deadline. Apparently, Mike Budenholzer and the franchise management decided that the current rotation would be enough to solve the main task for the season – to reach the big finals. Well, at least the regular season for Milwaukee is very simple so far.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (36 points, 20 rebounds, 6 assists) became the first basketball player in history after Wilton Norman “Wilt” Chamberlain, who managed to get at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists in 5 consecutive matches. Let’s see if this series will last.
Injuries report: Hill
Due to unsatisfactory results, the team of Steve Clifford has already dropped to a shaky 8th position in the Eastern Conference and 2nd in Southeast Division. 22 wins in 52 matches, lag behind the leader – 22.5 games benind. Magic lost their last two games, interrupting his win streak of 8 victories. If Orlando continues to lose further, there will be a danger of relegation from the playoff zone. Perhaps a positive influence will have James Ennis, who replenished Orlando in the deadline in exchange for a draft pick of the second round.
Injuries report: Augustin, Aminu, Isaac

Totalsporty’s Expert Prediction
In the current championship, Milwaukee have won 83% of away matches. Therefore, the indicator team is the strongest in the championship. On account of Orlando, only 52% of home victories. Most likely, the onslaught of Bucks Magic players will not stand. When a team with a better attack meets a team with the best defense, it’s risky to bet on the total. Our choice: bet on MoneyLine or Point Spread.
The Bucks scored a crazy move. It is unlikely that today’s Magic can stop them. Also, you can place a bet for the continuation of the Giannis series. This is a historical moment and the Greek will definitely cling to it.
Our prediction: Milwaukee Will Win
