Raptors vs. Magic NBA Betting Odds

Sunday is one of the great days of the year and it has little do to with this game or the NBA in generally if we are being honest. That’s because the final college basketball conference tournament title games are played and the 2024 NCAA Tournament bracket will be announced before this game tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET. In addition, it’s one of the biggest party days of the year in the United States with St. Patrick’s Day. So, yeah, there are going to be a lot of sick days taken at jobs on Monday. 

At 39-28, Orlando currently holds the No. 5 seed I the Eastern Conference. That’s already 12 more wins than last season. Toronto is 23-44 and 6.5 games out of the final play-in spot in the East currently held by Atlanta. The Raptors will not be playing extra basketball.

The lead the all-time series 57-43 and are 25-24 as the road team but have dropped the past three.

Toronto Raptors

This is the first and only home-and-home set of the season for the Raptors. They have played the same team in back-to-back games but those were both in Toronto in mid-December vs. the Hawks and they split. Toronto lost to the Magic 113-103 on Friday. Gary Trent Jr. returned after missing two games due to injury and had a season-high 31 points. That’s three straight 20-point games for Trent, who is averaging 28.0 points in that span. Immanuel Quickley had 10 points and 10 assists for his sixth double-double of the season, all of which have come since his trade from New York. Quickley has four games of double-digit assists this month, tying Tyrese Haliburton for second most in the NBA over that span. Quickley is the third player in Raptors history to have recorded at least 160 points and 80 assists over an eight-game span. RJ Barrett remains out for personal reasons. Toronto is 2-7 ATS in its past nine. 

Orlando Magic

We mentioned above the Magic might have to go through the play-in tournament to reach the Eastern Conference playoffs, but they have a great chance to avoid that starting Sunday because it’s the beginning of a season-long eight-game, 16-day homestand. Do well on that, and the Magic should avoid the play-in. It ties for the longest homestand games-wise in franchise history; the 1999-2000 team went 7-1 on its eight-game run. Orlando is 22-9 this season at home this season, which does include a loss in Mexico City early this season with Orlando as the designated home side. Last year, the Magic had only 20 home victories. They have six players score in double figures in Friday’s win but no one reach 20. Reserve forward Jonathan Isaac is out today due to left knee injury maintenance. Never has lived up to being the No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 draft but can make a difference defensively. Orlando is 7-2 ATS in its past nine.
