Magic vs. Bulls Prediction
Will the Magic cover as a small home underdog tonight when they host the Bulls at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Magic are a 2.5-point home underdog versus the Bulls after opening as a 2-point dog. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 206.5 after hitting the board at 206.
Dwyane Wade confirmed that he will play both ends of the Bulls' back-to-back, which consists of tonight's game in Orlando and Wednesday's matchup versus Atlanta. The Bulls beat the Kings 102-99 but it was their first win in their last three games and their third victory in their last eight contests.
The Magic fell 118-98 as a 14-point home underdog, which was their fourth loss in their last fifth game. Aaron Gordon was held to eight points on 4-of-14 shooting in Sunday's loss. He added three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 34 minutes.
OUR PREDICTION: The Bulls are winless at 0-5 against the spread in their last five trips to Orlando and are 1-7 against the number in their last eight games overall versus the Magic. The underdog has also cashed in 20 of the last 27 meetings between these two teams, while the home squad is 5-1 at the betting window in the last six meetings.
