Orlando Magic Betting

The Magic sustained another loss to the Indiana Pacers, 106-111, on Saturday. Evan Fournier fired for 26 points and Jonathan Isaac scored 25, but their efforts were not enough to steal a win in Indiana. Magicโ€™s defense was virtually non-existent in that game as the Pacers shot a staggering 54 percent from the field.

Payers to Watch: Evan Fournier (17.7 PPG and 3.5 APG), Jonathan Isaac (13.4 PPG and 7.2 RPG), and Markelle Fultz (10.8 PPG and 3.5 RPG).

Detroit Pistons Betting

Not even 20 bench points from Derrick Rose could save the day for the Pistons, who dropped their sixth of their last seven games after bowing out to the mighty Milwaukee Bucks, 90-104. Andre Drummond recorded 12 points and 17 rebounds, and Langston Galloway added 13 for the Detroit Pistons, who sat Blake Griffin in that game due to load management.

Players to Watch: Blake Griffin (19.5 PPG and 5.2 APG), Andre Drummond (18.5 PPG and 16.7 RPG), Derrick Rose (17.8 RPG and 5.1 APG)

Orlando Magic vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks

A -4.5 NBA spread edge doesnโ€™t guarantee a Pistons win based on their 2-4 record when entering as favorites. The same goes for a possible Magic upset as they are 0-7 as underdogs.

Moneyline: The Pistons won the last two meetings with the Magic and are 4-3 at home. If Griffin plays, Detroit should be a good bet since the Magic will be playing without their best big men โ€“ Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic.

ATS: The Pistons edged the Magic by a point on Jan. 16 before blowing them out by 17 on March 28. I expect the Pistons to cover the spread with Griffin and Drummond making the big difference in the game.

TOTALs: The total for this game opened at low 207 points. OVER looks like a good basketball over/under pick in this one. The Pistons laid a 90-point dud against the Bucks but they should up their scoring output with Griffin on the floor. The Magic are also picking up their scoring as of late despite ranking 29th in points per game (102 points).

Score Prediction: 111-105 Pistons
