Series History

The Thunder went 1-1 against the Magic last season (1-0 at home, 0-1 on the road).

Why the Thunder Will Cover (-3.0)

Oklahoma City is playing really well right now during their 3-game win streak, especially when you consider that the 3 wins came against expected playoff teams (Clippers twice, Mavericks once). With that in mind, it just makes sense that they’re favored against the visiting Orlando Magic, who have just one win in 7 tries. Also, the Magic have a laundry list of key injuries, so they’re struggling right now.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (216.0)

The Thunder managed to hit the over playing against a lousy defense in Dallas on Saturday, but I don’t see that happening again tonight. The Magic aren’t good, but they don’t give up a ton of points either, so I expect a safe under on the point total.
