There is one pick tonight.
Take Orlando Magic -2 spread (buy the half point) against Brooklyn Nets for 3% of the bankroll.
The Brooklyn Nets are playing some of their best basketball of the season and come into this contest having won 3 straight games, and 7 of their last 9. They are coming off an extremely efficient performance which saw them score 141 points in a win over the Philadelphia 76ers. There is no question that that particular performance raised some eyebrows and gained the attention of the some of the betting public. However, let's not forget, that this is still the same Brooklyn team who managed just 9 wins from October until March.
The Orlando Magic come into this contest on a 5-game losing streak and will be eager to get back into the win column now facing the leagues 'worst' team. Orlando is coming off what could have been a confidence building performance against the Eastern Conference leading Cleveland Cavaliers had it not been for a 3rd quarter collapse which saw them get outscored 43-20 in a game that they were leading by 2 at the half. It was a frustrating performance for the Magic players and we expect them to now take those frustrations out on a team that is no doubt, playing well above its head at the moment.
Given how well the Nets have performed since the beginning of March, it would be easy to jump on their recent hot-streak, however, this is a team that is destined to come back to earth. The Magic are coming off a poor performance which saw both Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon struggle from the field. We expect both of those players to bounce back and have a much stronger performance tonight as they go on to cover this small spread on their homecourt.
