Orlando Magic Betting
The past weeks have been tough for the Orlando Magic as they lost eight of their last ten games. There was a five-game winning streak in between and it spanned from January 22 – 27 while their last registered victory was just this February 3 and it was a two-point win against the Charlotte Hornets. Nikola Vucevic has been the best player for the team doing double-double per night with 18.8 points and 10.9 rebounds. Evan Fournier has been on a shooting slump but he still averages 18.6 points per game. Certainly, the Magic have lost their confidence and they need a win to boost them up. Going up against the Knicks can give them the added push but it can also drop their confidence as well.
Players to watch: N. Vucevic C 39 GP 39 GS 31.8 MIN 18.8 PTS 2.7 OR 8.2 DR 10.9 REB 3.5 AST 0.9 STL 0.8 BLK 1.4 TO 2.3 PF 2.6 AST/TO 21.7 PER

New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks have been shaky in their upper management but the team is doing far better than in the past weeks. They are on back-to-back wins and they were against the Indiana Pacers and the latest was against the Cleveland Cavaliers by just five points in overtime. Marcus Morris Sr. has been the subject for trade rumors but he is still the team’s most potent scorer doing 19.6 points per game. Julius Randle is showing his potential almost averaging a double-double per night but they need more production from their guards to spread out some space for their big men.
Players to Watch: M. Morris Sr. SF 43 GP 43 GS 32.3 MIN 19.6 PTS 1.1 OR 4.3 DR 5.4 REB 1.4 AST 0.8 STL 0.4 BLK 1.7 TO 3 PF 0.8 AST/TO 16.77 PER
J. Randle PF 49 GP 49 GS 32.5 MIN 18.9 PTS 2.3 OR 7.2 DR 9.5 REB 3.2 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 3 TO 2.8 PF 1.1 AST/TO 16.82 PER
