Magic vs. Raptors NBA Betting Odds

Saturday is the first of four regular-season meetings between the teams – they play two games in Orlando next weekend. Toronto won two of three last season. Pascal Siakam played in two of the three and averaged 25.0 points and 12.5 rebounds. Fred VanVleet averaged 19.0 points, and Scottie Barnes 16.7 points and 7.3 rebounds. 

The Magic snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Raptors back in March but still have lost 29 of the last 35 overall meetings with Toronto and 15 of the last 18 on the road (including two at Tampa in 2020-21).

Orlando once again is one of the NBA’s worst teams but has the Rookie of the Year favourite in forward Paolo Banchero, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft out of Duke. The team’s frontcourt is pretty good but the backcourt is a huge question mark.

Toronto is 10-2 against the spread in the past 12 meetings. 

Orlando Magic

The Magic lost their seventh straight game on Friday, 107-96 in Cleveland. Rookie Paolo Banchero scored 22 points, Cole Anthony had 19 and Markelle Fultz added 10 points and six assists for the Magic, who lost their seventh straight and have the worst record in the NBA at 5-18. Orlando is without starting centre Wendell Carter and is listing several players in question for tonight. That’s what will happen in the second of a back-to-back. Orlando is 2-3 this season in games decided by five points or less. The Magic are 2-1 in games decided by only one point. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their past five in the second of a back-to-back. 

Toronto Raptors

The Dinos lost 114-105 in Brooklyn on Friday. Brooklyn shot 53.7% and had 27 assists on its 44 baskets. Pascal Siakam had 24 points and 11 rebounds and OG Anunoby added 21 points for the Raptors. It was the second consecutive game that Toronto was down by at least 31 points. “We got punched in the mouth,” said Fred VanVleet, who added 10 points. “And waited (until) we were down 30 points to fight back, which was a little too late. That’s just part of being professional and being ahead of punching, being more physical and just being more aggressive and on your toes to start the game.”  Toronto will play nine of its next 14 games at home, where it is 8-2 this season. The Raptors (10.1) currently lead the NBA in steals per game, while Anunoby ranks first (2.3). Toronto is 5-2 ATS in its past seven at home.
