Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic’s three-game losing streak cost them to go down at the bottom of the playoff picture in the NBA Eastern Conference with a record of 27-35. They still have a 4.5 game advantage over the Washington Wizards but they hope to avoid the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA playoffs. On the road, this team has been doing badly as they won only 11 games in 31 contests. Their last game was a three-point loss against the Miami Heat and it was a heartbreaking loss. In that match, Nikola Vucevic finished with 22 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists while Terrence Ross paved the way with 35 points with eight three-pointers. The defense was horrible and they need to work on that if they intend to win any game anytime soon.
