The Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers meet Friday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Magic vs 76ers prediction.

Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic have been in a rut as they've lost three of their past four games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting routed by the Bucks in a 117-99 road defeat on Wednesday. Cole Anthony led the team with 23 points on nine of 14 shooting off the bench, Paolo Banchero added 20 points with six rebounds and six assists while Jalen Suggs chipped in with 18 points on six of 11 shooting. As a team, the Magic shot 46 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace from the start, falling behind by as many as 27 points before they made a late run to keep the scores somewhat respectable.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers are heating up at just the right time as they are now gunning for a seventh straight victory after blowing past the Pistons in a 120-102 home win on Tuesday. Joel Embiid led the team with 37 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, Buddy Hield added 18 points with six assists off the bench while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they took the early lead and always looked in control after pouring in 64 points in the first half.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Magic rank 1st in the league for opponent assists per game this season (24.0).

Magic vs 76ers prediction

The Magic could be shorthanded here, as Franz Wagner is currently listed as questionable, while the 76ers have listed Joel Embiid and Kyle Lowry as questionable. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, but the 76ers should be well-rested as they haven't played since Tuesday and I think they can stay hot with another win and cover at home.
