NBA Free Pick | Wizards at Magic

There are a few more choices on the betting board tonight with 10 games on the NBA schedule while the NHL is about to get All-Star festivities started. I hit the OVER last night in the Warriors at Wizards, and I’m going back to the Wizards tonight when they travel to play the Orlando Magic.

Current Line: ORL -4 Total: 218

TV Coverage: NBCS Washington, FS Florida (Orlando)

After a rough start, the Wizards are really coming around and are playing some great ball with Bradley Beal and Trevor Ariza leading the way. At 33, Ariza has lead his team in scoring the last two games, including a stat line of 27 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block last night against the Warriors.

The Magic have hit a rough patch of their own, losing 8 of their last 11, including 4 of their last 5. However, 2 of those 3 wins came on back-to-back nights against Boston and Houston. Nikola Vucevic has led the way for Orlando, averaging a team high 20.5 points per game and 12 rebounds per game.

The Wizards have won 6 of the last 10 they have played against the Magic, and the teams are even at 5-5 ATS in the same last 10 games with the O/U at 6-4. Looking a little deeper, Washington is 18-4 SU in their last 22 against Orlando and are 8-3 SU in their last 11 in Orlando.

Betting Basketball for Value

Thinking about wagering on the total in this one? Trends will cause some confusion with the OVER paying 6 of the last 8 games when these two play, however, the UNDER is 4-1 in the last 5 when these two play in Orlando.

Although the Wizards are playing on back-to-back nights, with travel in between, I’m taking the underdog to win straight up in this one. Washington are playing better ball than Orlando is right now, and I love the value in this one.
