Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic opened the second half of their 2019-20 NBA season campaign on a sour note as they fell to the Dallas Mavericks, 122-106, on Friday. Nikola Vucevic racked up 27 points and 12 boards, and Evan Fournier had 28 markers in the game. Orlando’s vaunted defense had no answers against the Mavs’ high-powered offense as the visiting team scored 122 points on 51 percent FG shooting.
Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (19.1 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 3.7 APG)
Evan Fournier (18.8 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 3.1 APG)
Aaron Gordon (14.1 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 3.2 APG)
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Nets just lost Kyrie Irving for the remainder of the season after the superstar guard decided to undergo surgery to fix his bothersome shoulder. Losing a player like Irving is a big blow to the Nets but this team is nowhere out of playoff contention. Currently at No.7 in the East, Brooklyn will now rely on Spencer Dinwiddie who is putting up the best statistical year of his career.
Players to Watch: Spencer Dinwiddie (20.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 6.7 APG)
Caris Levert (15.6 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 3.6 APG)
Joe Harris (13.8 PPG, 4.3 RPG and 2.1 APG)

Orlando Magic vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
The Magic is only 3-7 in their last 10 games, while the Nets are a solid 7-3. Online Bookmakers are banking on the Nets to deliver a victory and bettors must take into consideration the outcome of their first head-to-head meeting this season in which the Magic blasted the Nets, 101-89.
Moneyline: Bet on the Magic at +320. I like Orlando’s chance of taking a road win at the Barclays because of their obvious size advantage in their frontline. I expect Nikola Vucevic to have a field day inside.
ATS: Bet on the Magic to cover the spread. Orlando is a horrendous 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games, yet I have a feeling they can take down the Nets and get an ATS win on the road.
TOTALs: Bet the OVER at 213.5 points. The Magic has been giving up a lot of points in their last three games, conceding 126 points against Atlanta, 121 against Detroit and 122 points against Dallas.
Score Prediction: 114 – 107 Magic
