NBA Magic Raptors Free Pick, Preview & Odds

Today’s Magic Raptors free pick comes when the Toronto Raptors host the Orlando Magic in NBA hoops action tonight.

While we have a week to go until the NFL Super Bowl, there’s still plenty on the betting board today. We have NBA, NHL, college basketball and much more to keep up busy all day.

These two teams have been struggling mightily in the NBA Eastern Conference.

Past Betting Trends

This will be the first head-to-head meeting between these two teams this season.

However, if you look back at the betting trends, the Raptors have dominated the Magic. These two teams play each other a lot and dating back to 2019, the Raptors are on a 9-0 run.

Toronto are 6-0 ATS in the last six H2H meetings with Orlando. They have absolutely dominated the Magic in recent seasons, but for some reason the Raptors are only a -4.5 point favorite?

You can bet the public will be hammering the Raptors to win and cover ATS tonight.

Toronto just aren’t the same team as the championship team.

This is a weak team with little depth and they’re unlikely to make the NBA playoffs. OG Anunoby is also out with a calf injury. Norman Powell is also a GTD for tonight.

Magic Raptors Free Pick

Nikola Vucevic is going to be able to dominate in the paint against the Raptors frontcourt. 

Cole Anthony has been looking solid and then the Magic have Terrence Ross coming off the bench. This isn’t a great team, but they’re going to be able to keep it close with Toronto.

This is likely going to be a low-scoring game as well. In the last nine H2H games, the under is 7-2. 

I’ll be taking a shot and betting on the Magic moneyline in the NBA tonight for today’s Magic Raptors free pick.
