Magic vs Spurs Prediction
The current betting odds have the Magic listed as a 5 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Magic haven't been a great team this season with their 28-40 record overall and they haven't even been that great in their road games either with a 12-21 road record. They have still been a lot better than the Spurs though and the Magic will also have some momentum from their win over the Heat in their last game. The Spurs have been terrible this season with their 17-50 record overall making them one of the worst teams in the West this year and the entire NBA. They haven't even been good at home with their 11-23 home record and they just lost their last game too as they can't even string together 2 wins in a row. The Magic have not only been a better team this year and playing a lot better in their games lately, but they are also just a better team overall with more talent in their lineup. Both of these teams have been bad in the NBA this season but the Magic are still a lot better than the Spurs are and they will take advantage of this game for a win. The best way to place a bet here is on the Magic to cover the spread in this game.
