NBA Predictions: Will 76ers cover big spread versus Magic? 2/24/18

Are the Philadelphia 76ers going to race to a big home victory this evening over the Orlando Magic? Game time is at 5PM ET.

Philadelphia opened as an 8-point favorite before the line was bet up by a point and a half, while the over-under has come down from 218 points. You can still find the total at 217 points at some books.


As of Saturday morning, 60 percent of public bets have come in on the hosts. Online wager info also shows that 70 percent of bets are siding with the over.


Magic small forward Jonathon Simmons missed the last game with a left ankle injury, but he is expected to be available for today's game. For the Sixers, it appears probable that No. 1 overall draft pick Markelle Fultz will miss the remainder of the season with his shoulder ailment.


Orlando is 8-0 ATS in its last eight road games, refusing to get blown out despite being underdogs nearly exclusively. Now that the Magic have Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic both back in the lineup, the offense should be ready to flourish. But the Sixers have won six in a row and the first four of those victories were by double digits. I think Joel Embiid is going to be a huge problem down low and Philly will eventually pull away in the second half. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
