Orlando Magic vs Toronto Raptors 10/28/2019 Betting Odds
Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic finally had a close-up experience of what is like playing Trae Young and the young Atlanta Hawks. Evan Fournier scored a team-high 23 points and Nikola Vucevic racked up 16 points and 10 boards in a losing effort for the Magic, who shot a cold 35 percent from the field. But the biggest letdown for the Magic is their defense as they allowed Young to erupt for 39 points.
Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (18.5 PPG and 10.0 APG)), Evan Fournier (19.5 PPG, 3.0 RPG, and 3.0 RPG) and Aaron Gordon (9.5 PPG and 4.5 RPG)
Toronto Raptors Betting
The Raptors are doing just fine in the first three games of the post-Kawhi era. Toronto’s main man Pascal Siakam is averaging 28.7 PPG on 46% FG and 47% 3PTS. Fred VanVleet has also been steady in a starting role, scoring 19.3 PPG on 44.2% FG, while veteran guard Kyle Lowry has remained a stabilizing element for the Raps with 20.7 PPG and 7.0 APG.
Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (28.7 PPG and 10.7 RPG), Fred VanVleet (19.3 PPG and 6.3 APG), and Kyle Lowry (20.7 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 7.0 APG)

Orlando Magic vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks
There’s no surprise that the Raptors are the betting favorites on most top sports betting sites. They are coming off a win vs. the Bulls 108-84 and have been virtually unbeatable at home over the last four seasons.
Moneyline: Toronto is -190 favorites over Orlando’s +165 underdogs. That only shows to you how confident betting bookies are on the Raptors at home, even against a tough Magic team.
ATS: Orlando is 5-4-1 ATS against Toronto in the last 10 games. While the Raptors should be fine on their home floor, no one should count out the Magic from pushing the defending champs to the limit. Expect Orlando to still lose but by the slimmest margin (below 3 points).
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 213 points. Orlando is averaging 94.00 points per game in their first two games while Toronto is scoring 118.00 per contest in three games. Magic’s average points per game output should be a worrisome sight for over/under bettors, but I have faith in the Raptors’ high-powered offense to offset their opponents’ deficiency.
Score Prediction: 120-100 Raptors
