Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic had been struggling this season after showing a lot of promise on paper. With a year older to their young core, they added a few pieces but it seems that nothing much has changed. The lost Nikola Vucevic for a few games and back to providing double-doubles per night. He currently averages 17.6 points, 10.9 rebounds. 3.3 assists and 1.1 blocks per game. Even Fournier has been their leading points leader at 19.9 while Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross is averaging 13 points for the team. Markelle Fultz is showing that he belongs in the NBA but doesn’t have much of an upside aside from being a feel-good story. Embiid and Vucevic will cancel out each other but Orlando will have to worry about Tobias Harris, Al Horford and Ben Simmons as well.
