The Line: Dallas Mavericks -7.5 -- Over/Under: 207
The Orlando Magic and Dallas Mavericks meet Wednesday in NBA action at the American Airlines Center.
The Orlando Magic need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 93.5 points on 39.7 percent shooting and allowing 98.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 16.8 points and 9.8 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 16.8 points and 3.2 rebounds. Aaron Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Jonathan Isaac is grabbing six rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 28.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.8 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 29.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have lost all three road games this season.
The Dallas Mavericks look for another victory to build on their solid 4-2 start to the season. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 116.7 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 26.7 points and 9.5 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 20.5 points and 8.2 rebounds. Delon Wright is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr. is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.2 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks have lost two of their first three home games.
The Magic are 4-1-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Mavericks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-1-2 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The Magic are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Dallas and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-0 in Mavericks last 5 overall. The under is 9-1-1 in Magic last 11 overall.
The Orlando Magic have a serious offensive issue, as they have yet to top 100 points through their first seven games, and if they weren't able to beat the OKC Thunder last night, I doubt they have much success with the Mavs on the end of a back to back. The Dallas Mavericks are starting to heat up offensively and figure out their full potential, and they have the ability to run teams out of the gym when those shots are falling at home. If the Orlando Magic continue to have trouble scoring the basketball, they don't stand much of a chance in this game.
