Miami Heat vs Orlando Magic 3/14/2021 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are on a three-ga winning streak and that helped them get up to the fourth-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference at 20-18. That streak made them surpass the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Hornets. This team is now four games behind the Milwaukee Bucks and with the way they are playing, it won’t be a surprise if they manage to push it closer. The Heat lost only once in their last ten games and their last match against the Chicago Bulls was an 11-point victory, 101-90. Jimmy Butler led the team with 28 points, eight assists while Goran Dragic had 10.

Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic are now on a seven-game losing streak and they find themselves second to the last in the NBA Eastern Conference standings just three games above the Detroit Pistons. They got bludgeoned in their last match losing by 27 points against the San Antonio Spurs, 77-104. Nikola Vucevic flirted with a double-double of 26 points and nine rebounds while Dwayne Bacon finished with 15 points. This team has been plagued with injuries as Evan Fournier is back on the IR list. There are not many weapons left in the Magic roster and should be looking forward to another gloomy off-season.
