We easily cashed a ticket on the Bucks ATS two nights ago in Memphis, and a very similar situation has arisen tonight as Milwaukee plays at shorthanded Orlando.

If I had to guess, I would suspect the Magic will hold out Evan Fournier over the rest of the season. A sprained MCL is nothing to mess around with, so with nothing to play for other than draft positioning, I would be surprised if we saw Fournier on the court again this season.

Aaron Gordon is a different story, but it looks like he’ll be out as well tonight; he’s still in concussion protocol. Nothing is official on that front yet, but Gordon had to miss Tuesday night’s game.

With that in mind, and with the Magic coming off a tough loss to the Spurs on Tuesday night, they stand little chance of beating the Bucks tonight. Milwaukee has been playing very well lately, especially as road favorites. The Bucks are 7-2 ATS in that situation this season. Against a team on no rest it could be a rout tonight, so with your NBA picks you should take the visitors and lay the points.

Milwaukee has been struggling some, but in their last two games they’ve looked good against tanking teams in the Knicks and Grizzlies. With another tanking team on the horizon tonight, look for the Bucks to cover the number on the NBA odds board.
