Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic have proved that they are a young team on the rise and they are led by Nikola Vucevic. A brewing star on the team is Markelle Fultz who is rapidly gaining confidence on his game as consistency is slowly getting there for him. Evan Fournier is still the team’s best offensive weapon and Aaron Gordon is riping up his game as this year came. Terrence Ross has been great for them coming off the bench as he is stepping up for Jonathan Isaac who will be returning soon from injury. Orlando has become an exciting team to watch and credit on the team’s coaching staff in developing their players.

The Hornets’ lack of depth has been working against them as some of their games are being lost in the second half or mostly the fourth quarter. Their last win was on an overtime victory but in their last match, they lost to the Denver Nuggets by 14 points. Terry Rozier had 20 points and nine rebounds in that game along with six triples. PJ Washington, Miles Bridges and Devonte Graham each finished with 14 points. Cody Zeller was put in the starting lineup but he only had 11 points and one rebound. Outside of those five players, not much can be pulled out from the bench as they all combined for 11 points.
