NBA Betting Predictions: Orlando Magic vs Miami Heat
Today is a huge NBA matchup between two of the hottest teams in the NBA right now with the Orlando Magic traveling to take on the Miami Heat. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Heat as large -9 ½ point favorites over the Magic.
The Miami Heat have won five in a row and 13 out of their last 15 behind the highest 3 point shooting percentage in the East at 40.4%. Their most recent win a 111-87 beat down put on the Cavaliers at home. Miami was hitting shots with great efficiency shooting 50.6% from the floor and a ridiculous 14-21 from three point range at 66.7% helping them destroy Cleveland despite turning the ball over 17 times.
Lebron James led the game in scoring for Miami against his former Cavs team with 28 points, also having 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and a blocked shot. Dwayne Wade was second on the Heat with 22 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocked shots. Chris Bosh had 16 and surprisingly someone on the Miami Heat bench put up double digit points as Norris Cole had 10 and 4 assists.
The Orlando Magic have won four straight and 8 of their last 10, in their most recent game the Orlando Magic brutalized the the Bucks in a 94-85 victory at home. Orlando shot 33-76 from the floor and hit 9 out of 29 three point attempts, they had trouble hanging on to the ball as they turned the rock over 17 times but were rebounding machines out rebounding the Milwaukee 51-42.
Dwight Howard put in a great performance against Milwaukee shooting 8-12 from the field, hitting 10-14 free throws to lead the game with 26 points, and also led the matchup a staggering 20 rebounds. Forward Ryan Anderson had 23 points hitting 4-7 three point attempts and made 9 rebounds. J.J. Redick led the bench in scoring with 11 points and 3 assists.
NBA Betting Prediction: The Orlando Magic at home beat the Miami Heat 102-89 in their last appearance which was Miami’s fist game on a six game road trip with this being their first game at home since. I think the Heat are going to get revenge in this game however I do not think to the tune of more than 9 and ½ points as the Magic have been playing stellar as well. I like Miami to win but not cover the large spread against Orlando.
