Oklahoma City Thunder vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks
The Thunder and Magic are both 6-4 in their last 10 games, but OKC defeated really tough teams during that stretch, including two against the Houston Rockets. That’s why the Thunder opening in NBA betting lines as slight underdogs to the Magic is a little bit surprising.
Moneyline: Bet on the Thunder at +100. I truly believe OKC has the firepower to break into the 100-point mark and beat the Magic for the second time this season.
ATS: Back the Thunder to cover the spread at +1.5 points. The Thunder will win the game by more than five points and cover the spread for the eighth time in 11 games
TOTALs: Cash in on UNDER at 209.5 points. The Thunder will surely score more than 100. As for the Magic, it would take another big night from Fournier and Vucevic to push the total score past 209 points.
Score Prediction: 105 – 99 Thunder
