Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks

Legal sports betting sites are luring punters to drop their NBA spread bets on the Raptors who, in my opinion, should have been given a much bigger handicap considering their history of dominance over the Magic and their successful homestand lately.

Moneyline: The Raptors are 6-0 SU against the Magic in their last six games. Even without Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, the Raptors length continues to be the problem for the Magic. I expect the same on Friday with the visiting team cruising to another double-digit win.

ATS: The Raptors are an amazing 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Magic. If that record doesn’t convince you to pick the Raptors in cover betting, then it’s time to call your doctor and have yourselves checked.

TOTALs: The total opened at low 205 points. The total has gone OVER in four of the Raptors last five games. Sure, the Magic failed to score 100 points in the two games vs. the Raptors this season, but I have a big trust that Toronto’s offense will deliver.

Score Prediction: 115-95 Raptors
