Magic at Raptors: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Raptors 114, Magic 106

Money line (ML)

The RAPTORS (-225) will snap their three-game losing skid and add to the troubles of the injury-ravaged Magic. Orlando has lost 10 of its last 12 games coming into this two-game set against Toronto. The Raptors won each of the last eight games in this head-to-head series going back to the 2018-19 postseason.

There are few things Orlando is doing well on offense. The Magic are last in the NBA in effective field-goal percentage, and they’re 28th in offensive rating.

Orlando is seventh in the Association with 13.8 turnovers committed per game, but the Raptors are second with 17.1 turnovers forced per game. The Magic have a big advantage on the glass, especially at the offensive end, but those extra looks haven’t turned into points.

Against the spread (ATS)

Take the RAPTORS -5.5 (-110) to win by at least 5 points. Just two of the Magic’s last eight losses were played within a 5-point margin. Toronto’s strength this season has been the play of guards Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell. The backcourt is where Orlando is most hurt by injuries and the Raptors have the personnel to exploit the weakness.

Over/Under (O/U)

Bet the OVER 216.5 (-110). Both teams allow more than 110 points per game. Orlando ranks 22nd in pace (possessions per game), but it still ranks fifth in field-goal attempts per game. Toronto attempts a league-high 42.6 3-pointers per game and Orlando is just 15th in opponent’s 3-point percentage while allowing opponents to hit at a 36.7% clip from beyond the arc.
