The Orlando Magic suffered their third consecutive loss against an elite team, succumbing to the Los Angeles Clippers, 112-97, on Sunday at Amway Arena. Orlando’s bench showed up against the Clippers as their second-unit produced 45 of the team’s 97-point output.

Just like the Magic, the Miami Heat had no answer to Kawhi Leonard at the clutch. Jimmy Butler filled in the stats sheet once again with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists, while Tyler Herro and Kelly Olynyk recorded 19 points each. Bam Adebayo also had another impressive all-around game with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists.

Orlando Magic vs Miami Heat Betting Picks
The Magic won four of their last 10 games, while the Heat captured six wins out of 10 matches. Monday’s NBA betting lines began with the Heat at -6 point in spread betting but the odds had dwindled down to 4.5 after a few hours later. Jimmy Butler’s availability for this game will likely determine the final odds in Moneyline and spread betting.
Moneyline: Bet on the Heat at -210. Although Orlando dominated their intra-state rivals the last time around, Miami should be a solid pick to win this one, more so if Butler is ready to play. The Heat’s loss to the Clippers marked only their second loss at home this season.
ATS: Back the Heat to cover the 4.5-point spread. Miami is 4-2 against the spread in their last six games.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 212 points. We all know the Magic is the lowest-scoring team in the NBA at 103 points per game. However, the total score adjusted for this game isn’t that high for these teams to cover. Plus, the OVER is 8-2 in the Heat’s last 10 games.
Score Prediction: 118 – 99 Heat
