Detroit Pistons Betting
The silver lining so far for the Detroit Pistons season is that they are starting to move forward from the Blake Griffin era and trading away veteran guard Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks. But the Pistons look like they will be tanking the rest of the season to probably bid on quality talent from the next NBA draft in the likes of Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green. The rest of the team right now is just gaining more experience until help comes from the upcoming free agency. The Pistons are now second to the worst team right now in the league just behind the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic may just have four players in the injury list as compared to other teams but those athletes sum up half of the core rotation. Cole Anthony’s potent rookie year has been halted to a stop as he had a fracture while Markelle Fultz is out for the season. Aaron Gordon is now on the injured list as well together with Jonathan Isaac. The good thing is that Evan Fournier is back to give Nikola Vucevic some help. This should be another tough year for the Magic but they can boast that one of the best centers in the league right now is heading their squad and is just waiting for help to come.
