Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic has been battling for the final spots for the playoffs and so far they have been doing well this season as compared in past years. They have a legitimate shot of making it and this team is lead by Nikola Vucevic who has been a double-double threat every game. Evan Fournier is the team’s best shooter and Markelle Fultz looks like the big key if they want to make a playoff run. Against the Clippers, this team needs a lot of luck to win and since they are playing without Jonathan Isaac, their chances seem bleak. But the Clippers have been inconsistent and they could catch their opponents off guard.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting

After winning over their Los Angeles counterparts twice this season, the rest of their games have been inconsistent. Looking at how they play, they seem to be getting complacent and Lou Williams said it best that they have to come in with the underdog mentality once again. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are great additions but they have not played much together this season and they hope to get the two’s chemistry to kick in really soon. Against the Magic, they have to release that Doberman defense once again and lock their opponents guards down to not let the ball reach Vucevic.
