*Odds as of Thursday afternoon
The Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic both rank bottom-eight in the NBA at covering spreads this year.
Something has to give Thursday when the two meet for the second time in 72 hours.
Milwaukee is trending the right way, picking up three wins against the spread over its last four games.
Orlando, meanwhile, is responsible for the biggest win in our PRO Report to date. The Magic easily covered in a five-point loss to Philadelphia in late November as double-digit underdogs, with our projections identifying a clear line error.
Thursday’s matchup has been lighting up in our database all day, forming the biggest edge on the four-game slate.
Here’s the hot side.
