Orlando Magic vs Los Angeles Lakers Betting Picks

The Lakers haven’t dropped a game since the Christmas Day loss to the Clippers, 106-111. Legal betting sites initially put the Lakers at 9.5 points across the spread with the assumption that Davis will still sit out for this game. On the other hand, if he does suit it up, then expect the spread margin to grow wider in favor of the Lakers.

Moneyline: The Lakers are solid pick to win straight up here, with or without Davis. Los Angeles simply has the depth and a superstar named LeBron James to secure an easy win against a borderline playoff contender like the Magic.

ATS: The Lakers are my pick to cover the 9.5-point spread. Los Angeles defeated Orlando by just 9 points in the first meeting. However, the Magic had Augustin and Isaac in that game.

TOTALs: The total score went UNDER in five of the Magic’s last six games. While the Lakers don’t lack the firepower to score more than 120 points in one game, Orlando is a team that likes to slow down the pace of the game. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 115 – 94 Lakers
