The Orlando Magic play host to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Amway Center on Friday night.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been in decent form as they’ve won four of their last six games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting stopped by the lowly Hornets in a 107-101 road loss on Wednesday. Shake Milton led the team with 22 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, De’Anthony Melton added 20 points, Tobias Harris scored 19 points while Montrezl Harrell chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 44 percent from the field and nine of 38 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 33 points in the first quarter to open an early 13-point lead, but they quickly lost momentum and struggled to score from that point onwards to fall just short in the end.
Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in a slump as they’ve lost six of their last nine games and they will be aiming to snap a two-game skid after getting thrashed by the Pacers in a 123-102 road loss on Monday. Franz Wagner led the team with 20 points on six of 11 shooting, Gary Harris added 18 points off the bench while Mo Bamba chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Magic shot just 42 percent from the field and 11 of 35 from the 3-point line as they managed just 17 points in the second quarter to fall behind by nine points going into halftime and things only got worse in the third quarter where the Pacers went on another run to put them behind by 25 points.
Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 6-16-1 ATS in their last 23 road games, 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games against a team below .400 and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. The Magic are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss of more than 10 points.
Head to head, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings overall, the 76ers are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Orlando and the 76ers are 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings overall.
The 76ers are going to be severely depleted once again as Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey and James Harden are all out, while the Magic are keeping an eye on Chuma Okeke and Wendell Carter Jr who are both questionable for this one. It’s hard to split these two teams at the moment as the 76ers are just so banged up, but the Magic are a solid 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games while the 76ers are 6-16-1 ATS in their last 23 road games. It’s not often you see the Magic as favorites against anyone these days, but they should be fully rested as they haven’t played since Monday, so I’ll lean towards the Magic to get the win at home in this spot.
