The Orlando Magic and Dallas Mavericks meet Saturday in NBA action at the American Airlines Center. The Orlando Magic need a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Dallas Mavericks look for a win after winning seven of their last eight games.
The Orlando Magic are averaging 101.8 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 110.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Cole Anthony is averaging 19.8 points and 6.3 rebounds, while Franz Wagner is averaging 15.6 points and 4.7 rebounds. Wendell Carter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.
The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 105.3 points on 5 percent shooting and allowing 103.4 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 24.7 points and 8.8 assists, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 20.6 points and 8 rebounds. Jalen Brunson is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr. is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.6 rebounds per game.
The Magic are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 Saturday games. The Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Magic last 9 road games. The under is 16-5 in Mavericks last 21 overall. The Magic are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Dallas and 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
The Orlando Magic are coming off a feel good win over the Hornets last night, but they still lose in the underdog role by an average of 9.2 points and lose on the road by an average of seven points. The Dallas Mavericks have been a different team since the return of Doncic, and they beat the snot out of the Grizzlies last night, digging their heels in defensively. The Magic are big underdogs nightly, and they don't cover numbers much. It's Mavs or pass for me.
