Orlando Magic continues to perform poorly, having a 4-game losing streak, and owns the second-worst record in the NBA. They are one of only two teams to have a win rate under 0.00 along with the Detroit Pistons. Their latest attempt got them crushed by the Milwaukee Bucks 136-118. It was the second game in a row the Bucks beat them after a 127-110 win on Tuesday. To say that things are looking bad in Orlando would be an understatement.
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are having a very impressive win over the Phoenix Suns 123-108 on Friday night. While they’ve always had problems winning games, this is a prime example of how dangerous they can be to step up. It was also a nice comeback after suffering three straight losses to the Clippers, Timberwolves and Bucks.
Here are the odds for this Eastern Conference confrontation with the support of WynnBET:
What makes the Celtics’ most recent win over the Suns so impressive is not the overall scoreline of the loss. But, for me, it was the fact they did it without Jayson Tatum on the field. Tatum is still expected to compete tonight due to health and safety regulations. In good news, defenders Dennis Schroder, Aaron Nesmith and Bruno Fernando have all been ruled out of injury and are expected to be in action this evening.
While I like the under-double-digit team in the NBA, Magic doesn’t feel like a team worth betting on tonight. They are 1-3 ATS in the last four games and 3-6 ATS in the last nine. Orlando is 1-5 ATS in their last six games after a double-digit home loss as of now. Magic is what they are. A team is rebuilding and looking for a part to build around. What Magic is not a good team to bet on right now after losing two consecutive losing games.
Pick: Boston Celtics -11.5 (-110)
