Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic are now the worst team in the NBA Eastern Conference and they seem to be already looking forward to getting another high pick in the upcoming draft lottery. Rookie Franz Wagner has been doing great for this team and he is outplaying college standout, Jalen Suggs. Those two players are good additions to the team along with Cole Anthony providing great numbers as the starting point guard position along with Mo Bamba becoming a solid center in the league. This team is not yet ready to win and it is not a priority for them to get higher in the standings.
Players to watch: C. Anthony PG 36 GP 36 GS 33.2 MIN 17.9 PTS 0.6 OR 5.4 DR 6 REB 6 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.8 TO 2.7 PF 2.2 AST/TO 14.98 PER

Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls are slowly getting their roster back with Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic ready to help get the team back on track. Their recent win pushed them to regain the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and are currently looking to put more cushion to their lead above all the teams in the division. With the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat slumping recently, this is a good time for the Bulls to aim to get into another winning streak heading to the NBA All-Star Weekend. Lonzo Ball and Patrick Williams are still sidelined along with Alex Caruso and their services will be missed in this matchup.
