  • The Bucks are 12-14 on the road this season
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is leading the league in steals while ranking third in scoring
  • The Magic have just 11 teams with records above .500 remaining on their schedule

The All-Star break is officially over, which means there are less than two months left in the season. Our USA Legal Betting experts have combed through win-totals from betting sites across the country and have established three bets that they love.

Below, we will share their three favorite win-total bets heading into the final stretch of the season. We’ll give you everything you need to bet each confidently at NBA betting sites.

Milwaukee Bucks Under 50.5 Wins  

Odds: +106 at FanDuel Sportsbook 

The Milwaukee Bucks currently sit at 35 wins have just 36 games left on their schedule. That means they’ll need to win at least 16 games to surpass FanDuel’s current win total. That is a tall order for a team that has a new coach, a slew of new players, and has yet to find their identity. We think they will figure things out, but it will take some time.

One reason we don’t see the Bucks going on a monster run is their remaining schedule. They have two games with the Celtics, two against the Sixers, two against the Thunder, and other single matchups against teams like the Kings and Suns. On top of that, the 14 of the Bucks remaining 16 games will be on the road, where they currently have a record of 12-14.

The other major reason we like this bet is that the Bucks still have major issues on defense. Pat Beverly will help, but they’ll need more help defending on the outside. Doc Rivers has helped improve that a bit, but we have yet to see anything close to the defensive powerhouse the Bucks have been the last few seasons.

Oklahoma City Thunder Over 55.5 Wins 

Odds: -125 at BetMGM Sportsbook

This is a substantial win total considering the number of games remaining, but we love this bet. This is a great Thunder team, led by one of the best players in the league: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (31.1 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 6.5 APG, 2.2 SPG). The guard has been fantastic on both ends of the floor, leading the league in steals while ranking third in scoring.

A player as talented as SGA will win a team a lot of games alone, but he is supported by the best young lineup in the league. 22-year-old Jalen Williams has been lights out from three (45.3 3P%), and 21-year-old Chet Holmgren is ranks fourth in the league in blocks (2.6 BPG). This young trio is getting better as the season progresses, a trend we see continuing.

OKC’s schedule is surprisingly favorable to close out the season. The Thunder need 19 wins to cover this total and will face 12 teams that currently rank in the bottom four of their respective conferences. They have another five games against teams currently sitting in position to make the play-in tournament. 

That is a lot of easy wins lined up for OKC, which they’ll be motivated to win as they battle for the top seed in the West.

Orlando Magic Over 45.5 Wins 

Odds: -132 at BetRivers Sportsbook

This is our favorite bet of the three on this this list. The Magic started the season as one of the best teams in the East, but a rough December and January have dropped them to eighth in conference with a 30-25 record. The cold streak came to a just before the All-Star break, with the Magic winning seven of their ten games heading into it.

The Magic may not be the elite force they were at the start of the year, but this is still a talented team, and their remaining schedule is among the worst in the league. The Magic come back from the break with a tough game against Cleveland, but then will face Pistons, Hawks, Nets, Jazz, Pistons again, Hornets, and Wizards over their next seven games. 

The Magic face just 11 teams that currently own records above .500. That leaves a lot of easy games on the schedule, which is why we are betting on them to cover the 45.5-win total.
