The Orlando Magic are 3-2 their last five straight up. Orlando is being friendly to ATS bettors covering four of their last five. Orlando is last in the Southeast, just six games out of first place. The Magic recently upgraded at point guard, acquiring Brandon Jennings from Detroit. The position is crowded with Elfird Payton, C.J. Watson, and Shabazz Napier. Head Coach Scott Skiles is impressed with the maturation of Jennings; he turned into a consummate professional. Someone will be cut or let go all together at the position. Orlando ranks twenty-second league wide scoring the basketball. Defensively the Magic fares better, allowing the opposition 101.0 ppg, eleventh in the NBA. Center Nikola Vucevic is the team leader in scoring, rebounding and shot blocks. Shooting Guards Evan Fournier and Victor Oladipo complement each other at the position. The Magic are a team on the rise and are still in the thick of the playoff race.
The 2016 Philadelphia 76ers are last in the Atlantic, and there is no talk of the playoffs. The team even entertained trade talks involving 2015 first round draft choice Jahlil Okafor. The 76ers cut fan favorite JaKarr Sampson, who is hardworking and has what the franchise is looking for in players. The former St.Johns alumni, also a great locker room presence for the immature “SIXERS”. The business of basketball can be cruel, but it’s fair. Philadelphia is twenty-eight games behind first-place Toronto in the Atlantic. Philadelphia is currently on a four-game losing streak but has covered four of their last five ATS. Philadelphia is at the bottom of the league in both offense and defense. Newly acquired point guard Ish Smith look like he’s the future at the position. Rookie Okafor is the team leading scorer, and Nerlens Noel grabs a team-high 8.1 rebounds per game and blocks nearly two shots per contest.
The Betting Odds Under The Total are 8-2 the last ten between the teams in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is 5-1 Against The Point Spread their last six at home.
