NBA Playoffs Betting Predictions: Indiana Pacers vs Orlando Magic
Each team got a win a piece in Orlando now we head to Indiana for the Pacers vs Magic game three. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Indiana Pacers as -155 home favorites against the Magic. Indiana won game 2 by a comfortable 93-78, so Orlando certainly have their work cut out for them on the road tonight.
If it were not for center Glenn Davis having a good first half this game would have looked much uglier on the scoreboard. Orlando shot a low 35.5% from the floor, hit 8 of 25 three-point attempts, and turned the rock over 16 total times against the Pacers.
Davis led the Magic in scoring with 18 points and led his team in rebounds with 10, but he didn’t perform in the second half. Ryan Anderson who is suppose to be a big scorer for this team only had 11 after shooting 3 for 9 from the floor and hitting 3 for 8 from behind the arc. J.J. Redick helped out with 13 points from the bench but from 5 for 12 shooting and hitting only 1 of 5 three’s.
With four players scoring 17+ points and five players putting up double digits the Indiana Pacers proved too much for the Magic. Indiana shot 42.9% from the floor but had great trouble hitting from three-point range as they went 2 for 20. They did however make 25 of 28 shots from the foul line which was game changing.
Paul George shot most efficently for the Pacers hitting 7 of 10 shots from the paint finishing up with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. George Hill scored 18 points on 6 for 10 shooting to go with 4 rebounds, an assist, and a steal. Danny Granger and David West both scored 18 both the hard way with volume shooting, while 8 of West’s points came from the foul line.
NBA Betting Prediction: It was a great effort for the Orlando Magic to win the first game against the Indiana Pacers. I just don’t know how many more of those they have in them, especially on the road in Indiana tonight. I’m taking the Pacers over the Magic in game three.
