5* NBA BLOCKBUSTER GAME OF THE MONTH
Milwaukee vs. Orlando,
03/03/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 98 - 114
Point Spread: +9/-102 Milwaukee
While the Bucks are struggling to win games, they are not getting blown out that much this season. Only two of their last eight losses have come by more than 9-points. Milwaukee has plenty of reason to be motivated for their game against Orlando tonight. The Bucks have lost each of the first three games of the series by 9-points or less, and have to feel like they should have won all three of those games. I don't know that they will be able to break trend and pull out a win, but I expect this game to be extremely close right the entire way.
The Magic suffered a tough loss at home to Oklahoma City on Thursday, blowing a double-digit second half lead to lose the game 102-105. That actually sets up a profitable situation to follow. The Magic are just 13-28 ATS off a close home loss by 3 points or less since 1996.
Milwaukee has also been a good team to back on the road in the second of the season. They are 28-14 ATS in road games second half of the season over the last 3 seasons. BET THE BUCKS!
