Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic are very much a different team when they started the season. The midseason trades of the organization indicates that they will be going on a rebuild after missing the mark for years. This team has not been very good since Dwight Howard was with the Magic. The best way for them to restart is building through the draft. They are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the third worst record in the NBA and a loss will help them increase their odds to land into a higher drafting position. They also own the Chicago Bulls first round pick which may be from top 8 to 12.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Philadelphia 76ers have locked up the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and they can risk losing this game. This should be a chance for the best players on the team to rest and prepare for their playoff run. Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris are the prime players that will be eligible to rest. Nonetheless, Dwight Howard and Shake Milton should be able to hold on their own as both players proved throughout the season. This is going to be a very important postseason for the Sixers and it will determine if they will break up the Embiid-Simmons combination.
