The Milwaukee Bucks (20-3) are going for their 15th straight win when they host the Orlando Magic (11-11) on Monday night. The Bucks have been absolutely demolishing opponents during the streak, with their smallest margin of victory four points a few weeks ago against the Utah Jazz. The Magic have won four in a row and five of six, so they have a shot at ending the streak with a healthy rotation. Let’s break down the lines and spreads on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Magic vs. Bucks spread, over/under, money line

Spread: Bucks (-12.5)
Over/Under: 227.5
Money line: Bucks (-910), Magic (+650)

I got burned last time around thinking the Los Angeles Clippers would end the Bucks’ winning streak, but I sort of have a better feeling about the Magic doing it tonight. Orlando is a top 10 defensive team, so this game could be tight by design. The Magic have length to contend with Giannis Antetokounmpo in Jonathan Isaac, Aaron Gordon and Khem Birch. I think at the very least the Magic can cover this spread. I’d also lean the UNDER given both teams are strong defensively. And finally getting +650 if you think Orlando can pull it off, I mean, go for it. Throw in a parlay while you’re at it. Yolo.
