Orlando Magic faces the Heat in Miami


Orlando Magic will face the Miami Heat on the Heats home court, the commercially titled Ford Center later on tonight. This will be a match against to teams that are already headed into post season play.

Orlando is set to arrive on the court brimming with the confidence earned by winning 9 consecutive ball games. Trouble is, Miami’s also sitting on a 9 game winning streak. Looks like somebodies winning streak is about to come to a crashing halt.

Currently, Orlando’s ranked 5th in the league for the best defensive team, having allowed 93.4 points per game.

The Magic have won nine straight games; tied with the Miami Heat for the longest current winning streak. In their streak, Orlando remained four games behind the Heat. The Magic have seen “Superman” Dwight Howard continue his assault on the NBA with 21.2 points and 13.1 rebounds per game. The Magic are the fifth best defensive team in the league; allowing 93.4 points per game. The Magic, in their most recent game – went into Dallas and beat the Mavericks 117-107.

In my opinion, home court advantage takes this home. My pick here is Oklahoma to win straight up. The spread is Orlando Magic -1.5 and Oklahoma +1.5.

My Betting Picks: This should be an excellent basketball game. The hot teams has to go on the road. Streaks have to end at some point. This is where the run will end for Orlando. Oklahoma City picks up a thrilling home win on Thursday!

The over under line for the Orlando Magic vs Oklahoma City Thunder is sitting at 203 currently. These teams will smash that number.
