The Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic duke it out at the Amway Center on Saturday night.

The Boston Celtics will be gunning for a third straight victory to start their season after outlasting the Heat in a 111-104 road win last night. Jayson Tatum led the team with 29 points, five rebounds and four assists, Jaylen Brown added 28 points on 12 of 18 shooting while Derrick White chipped in with 10 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the Celtics shot 51 percent from the field and 14 of 33 from the 3-point line as they leaned heavily on the duo of Tatum and Brown who delivered from start to finish after getting off to a quick start. The Celtics were on point defensively which kept them at bay after building an early 14-point lead.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting stopped by the Hawks in a 108-98 road loss last night. Cole Anthony led the team with 25 points on eight of 12 shooting off the bench, Paolo Banchero added 20 points with 12 rebounds and three blocks while Wendell Carter Jr. chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Magic shot just 41 percent from the field and eight of 34 from the 3-point line as they held the Hawks to just 19 points in the first quarter to take the early lead which they kept for most of the game, until the fourth quarter where they got outscored by 28-17 to fall short in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against a team below .400. The Magic are 16-33-1 ATS in their last 50 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing on zero days’ rest.

Head to head, the under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Orlando, the Celtics are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and the Celtics are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in Orlando.

The Magic are still missing a host of players including Jalen Suggs who just suffered a sprain ankle, while the Celtics are still without their center in Robert Williams. It’s been just two games, but it’s already obvious where these teams are headed. The Celtics look like a team headed for another deep playoff run, while the Magic are already struggling and with all these players out like Markelle Fultz, Gary Harris, Moritz Wagner and Jonathan Isaac, I can’t see them improving anytime soon. The Celtics are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and I think that trend continues here as they should be too good for the shorthanded Magic.
