Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic’s free fall to a record of 6-7 is because they lost five straight games. Injuries have derailed the team with Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz being out for the entire season. Evan Fournier is going to miss another game due to back spasms while Michael Carter-Williams is also out. The team has a thin rotation at the guard spot and giving the steering wheel to rookie Cole Anthony. He has been doing well but Dwayne Bacon has been a terrible starter. Nikola Vucevic has been putting up great numbers but it is not enough to get them over the edge.

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks finally got to snap their five-game losing streak with a 30-point victory over the Boston Celtics, 105-75. Julius Randle tallied a double-double with 20 points and 12 boards while RJ Barrett had his own doing 19 points and 11 rebounds. Reggie Bullock had a fair game with 11 but the big help came from Immanuel Quickley who has been the best bench contributor by the team. Rookie Obi Toppin looks like he is getting rid of the rust as he made 12 points and five rebounds in just 16 minutes of gameplay. Coach Tom Thibodeau is happy with what he sees and hopes to keep the momentum.
