Magic on road trip

The Magic are playing their fourth straight road game today, but first out West. They are 1-2 overall and against the spread thus far on the road trip after a 120-103 loss at Minnesota on Friday. Orlando is 17-21 on the season, 7-10 on the road, 20-18 against the spread and 22-16 with the under.

Orlando is struggling on offense this season, averaging just 103.6 points per game. Defensively, the Magic are allowing 107.2 points per game, but opponents shoot 37.2 percent from the arc. Nikola Vucevic is leading the team this season with 20.4 points and 11.7 rebounds per game while Aaron Gordon is adding 15.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Clippers looking for momentum

Los Angeles is coming off a 121-111 win at Phoenix on Friday. The Clippers have won three of their last five, but have been hovering around .500 play over the past few weeks. Los Angeles is 22-16 on the season, 12-6 at home, 22-16 against the spread and 23-15 with the over.

The Clippers are one of the top offenses in the NBA, averaging 115.9 points per game while shooting 38.3 percent from the arc. Defensively, the Clippers are giving up 114.7 points per game. Tobias Harris is leading the Clippers this season with 20.9 points and 8.0 rebounds per game while Danilo Gallinari is adding 19.6 points per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Orlando

The Magic are 1-5 against the spread in their last six against Western Conference opponents and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

Los Angeles

The Clippers have covered the spread in six of their last eight overall and in four of their last five Sunday games.

Prediction:

Both teams have struggled with consistency as of late, but this is a favorable matchup for the Clippers. Orlando has really struggled to defend the arc and the Clippers are a strong shooting team. Orlando’s offense won’t be able to keep pace with Los Angeles today, so I see this game getting out of control early.

NBA Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers -6.5
