Miami Heat vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks
The Heat are mediocre at best in their last 10 games, going 5-5 over that stretch. The Magic, though, are worse at 3-7. These two Florida teams split their first two head-to-head meetings this season, and that’s probably the reason why online bookmakers adjusted the spread to just 2-points.
Moneyline: Bet on the Heat at -130. Miami has been so-so the last 10 games but they are among the elites in the East this season. Also, I am expecting a big game from All-Stars Butler and Adebayo in this game.
ATS: Pick the Heat to cover the 2-point spread. With the spread adjusted this narrow, my money is on Miami to win by at least five points.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 208 points. The Magic likes a low-scoring affair, the Heat wants a fast-paced offense. I think Miami will control the flow of the game with both teams scoring more than 100.
Score Prediction: 118 – 110 Heat
