Orlando Magic Betting

Orlando has been nothing short of magical in their last three games, beating Philadelphia, San Antonio, and Washington by scoring well into 100 points. After struggling to score points in their first few games, it seems the offense is finally clicking for the Magic. In Sunday’s 125-121 win over the Washington Wizards, the Magic recorded their highest scoring output this season, thanks in part to Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier, who combined for 55 points.

Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (18.2 PPG, 12.1 RPG, 3.4 APG), Evan Fournier (16.8 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 3.5 APG), Aaron Gordon (13.9 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 3.1 APG)

Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors keep on piling up wins without Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry. In Monday’s 132-96 win over the Charlotte Hornets, the Raptors simply controlled the action on both ends of the floor, smothering Charlotte with their length on the defensive end and perplexing them with their excellent passing (40 assists).

Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (25.7 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 4.2 APG), Kyle Lowry (21.8 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 6.5 APG), Fred VanVleet (17.2 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 7.6 APG)

Orlando Magic vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks

Even without Lowry and Ibaka, the Raptors are able to fill that hole by giving players like Matt Thomas, Terrence Davis, and Chris Boucher significant playing time. Rondae-Hollis Jefferson has been an excellent defender and glue-guy for the Raptors, while Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet have really stepped up big time this season.

Moneyline: The Raptors cruised to a 9-point win in their first meeting of the season last October 28. Obviously, the Magic are coming in as a much better squad, yet I still do believe the Raptors are the better NBA Moneyline bet as they have the tools to sustain their dominance in their head-to-head rivalry.

ATS: The Raptors are 8-5 against the spread this season. The Magic will give the home team a run for their money in their second game. Then again, the Raptors’ championship pedigree will eventually show up in the end, hitting key baskets late to win by at least 8 points.

TOTALs: The total opened at a high 209.5 points. The Raptors and Magic are averaging a combined 215 points per game this season. Toronto has always been an above-average scoring team, while the Magic has been putting up a lot of points on the board lately.

Score Prediction: 112-104 Raptors
