Against The Spread Pick
The Orlando Magic aren’t a terrible team, but they have a lot of issues playing a faster pace, and that’s exactly what the Los Angeles Clippers do. Over the last five games, the Magic are averaging 105.6 points per game, while the Clippers are averaging 118. In the Clippers last game it was Kawhi Leonard who put up 43 points in 29 minutes. He has made up for the hole that has been left by Paul George not playing. The Magic are 3-7-1 against the spread in the last 11 meetings played between the two teams. The Clippers are a great play in this game and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them in blowout fashion.
Over Under Pick
The Clippers are going to dictate the pace in this game and it should mean it should go well over the total. Over the last five games they are averaging 118 points per game while the defense is giving up 117.8 points. The Magic aren’t going to have as much success as other team’s against them, but it should still go well over the total. The over is 6-2 in the Magic’s last eight road games. The over is 6-2 in the last eight games against the Western Conference. Back the over.
