Free NBA Picks and Predictions on this Game 3 battle tipping off on Saturday, August 22, 2020 between the Milwaukee Bucks vs Orlando Magic.


Sports Betting Preview on this NBA Playoffs Round 1, Game 3 matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic. Tipoff is set for this Saturday, August 22nd at 1pm et.

The current NBA odds have the Bucks as -12.5 point favorites with the over/under is at 226.5 total points. The betting public has 75% of their money on the Bucks.

Milwaukee comes into this game off a dominate game 2 victory, 111-96, lead by Giannis, the Greek Freaks’ 28 points and 20 rebounds. The Bucks defense was the real story behind this game. They manage to hold the Magic to 35% shooting from the field and 21% from three point land.

The X factor for Milwaukee in this game will be Khris Middleton. In the past two games, he’s shot 5 for 20 from the field and 2 for 10 from 3 points land, scoring a total of just 16 points. He’s in desperate need of a huge bounce back game and our eyeballs will be looking to possibly take his over total points prop bet once that line comes out.

Milwaukee is 4-9 straight up in their last 13 games and 4-2 against the spread in their last 6 games against Orlando.

Orlando comes into this series, tied 1-1 but are currently a +3000 underdog to win the series outright, so that just shows you how confident oddsmakers are behind this #1 seeded Milwaukee team.

The X factor for the Magic in this game will be how well they shoot the 3 point ball. If they shoot lights out from the behind the arch like they did in Game 1, they’ll have at least a chance to keep this game close.

Their ball movement and open looks have been on point throughout these past few games and I don’t see that changing, so as a team their offense should be able to put up over 106 total points compared to just 96 points last game.

Orlando is 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 games and the total has gone under in 4 of the Magic’s last 5 games against Milwaukee.

Your free pick in this game 3 matchup between the Bucks vs. Magic, we’re rolling with the Over 111 Total Points in the First Half at the -110 price.
