Team Stats


Series History

The Thunder is 1-0 against the Magic so far this season (1-0 at home, 0-0 on the road).

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+2.0)

Since winning six games in a row, including back-to-back victories in Boston over the Celtics, the Orlando Magic has lost 4 of their last 6. The two wins came against Houston and San Antonio, two of the league’s worst teams, and the not a single loss came against a team with a winning record. Orlando is a slight favorite, likely because OKC is without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (non-Covid illness) and playing on a back-to-back, but I still think the Thunder can cover and win this one on the road against a depleted Magic team who is missing a chunk of guys due to suspension.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (228.5)

OKC came up with a franchise-high record of 150 points last night in the big win over the Celtics. I definitely don’t think they come anywhere near that tonight against Orlando, but I do see this one hitting the over. A game last night can do wonders for the confidence of young players, and while the Thunder is unlikely to shoot 50% from three and nearly 60% from the field again, there is a good chance they come out with a lot of energy and ready to go yet again.
