Thunder vs Magic Prediction and Odds (Bet Orlando to Cover as Home Favorites)

Two of the NBA’s newest players meet in Orlando on Sunday night when the Oklahoma City Thunder travel to take on the Magic.

No, neither the Thunder nor the Magic will make the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create a valid side or total bet.

Here are the odds of WynnBET Sports Betting between two teams preparing for next season.


Money line:

Total: 225.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Does the Magic become anything in the second half of this season? The team is 10th in the league in defensive rating since the All-Star break and has held up in recent games against elite competition. They went to overtime against the Sixers last Sunday and will now be looking to step up against a modest Thunder team.

Sure, the Magic are rarely in the role of a favorite, and the Thunder against the spread marks looks garish (40-23-4), but the circumstances are different for this one. OKC’s rebuilding roster is usually lined up as a double-digit underdog, which means they just have to hold on to cover themselves. However, this is now a slight deviation from their usual numbers and the Magic could be set for a big outing.

It’s the first time the Thunder have been a single-digit underdog in nine games, and the rapid shift in expectations can lead to an explosive result. Like I said, the Magic have been an elite defensive team since the All Star break and the Thunder posted the second-worst net mark in basketball during that time (-14.3).

I can’t count on OKC to hang around this little spread, especially with the Magic playing an inspired ball over a long period of time.

LEAN: Magic -6.5
