Thunder vs Magic Prediction
The current betting odds have the Thunder listed as a 2.5 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Thunder have looked good in their games this season with their 36-17 record overall which has them right near the top of the West with one of the best records in the entire NBA. They haven't been at their best in road games this season but they have still been a good road team with their 15-11 road record. Meanwhile, the Magic have also looked good in their games this season with their 29-24 record overall which has them in a play-in spot for the playoffs in the East. The Magic have also looked great on their home court this year with their 17-7 home record and they have some momentum coming into this one with 2 wins in a row now. They haven't played any good teams in those wins though with both coming against teams with losing records and the Thunder also have some momentum of their own right now as they just blew out the Kings on their home court. The Thunder have been a really consistent team in the NBA all season and as good as the Magic have been on their home court this year, the Thunder have more talent in their lineup and will be looking to get on another roll here after beating the Kings in their last game. The best way to place a bet here is on the Thunder to cover the spread in this game.

Orlando Magic: None.
“I thought we were just a lot more edgy today than we were yesterday. And I thought the guys, it’s not about responding to one game, but it certainly is about us recognizing where our standards are and getting the car back on the road when we’re not up to par. And I thought the guys did a great job of that today.” - Mark Daigneault after his team’s win against the Kings in their game on Sunday.
“These guys that had not played some minutes came in and stepped up huge.” - Jamahl Mosley after his team’s win against the Bulls in their game on Saturday.
