Nikola Vucevic is averaging 16.8 points and 9.8 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 16.8 points and 3.2 rebounds.

The Orlando Magic are allowing 29.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have lost both road games this season.
The Oklahoma City Thunder also need a win after a 2-4 start to the season. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 104.3 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 101.8 points on 40.4 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 21.8 points and 7.2 rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18 points and 1.3 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is dishing 4.5 assists. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 28.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.7 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their first four home games.
The Magic are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Magic are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Oklahoma City and 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Thunder last 6 overall. The under is 9-1-1 in Magic last 11 overall.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been better than expected up to this point, and they're a young squad that competes its tail off and can hit the outside shot. The Orlando Magic haven't played to what we expected after making the playoffs last season and have been downright awful on the offensive end. With that said, I still think it's fair to say the Magic are still the better team and should break out of this slump eventually. I enjoy taking the better team and free points, and I'm going to do that here as well.
