Do oddsmakers think that the host Orlando Magic going to stay within the point spread number tonight when they meet the Philadelphia 76ers at 7:00PM ET in Orlando?

801 Philadelphia 76ers at 802 Orlando Magic, 7PM ET


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the 76ers are listed as an 8-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 214 points.

Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 22, 2018


Philadelphia opened as a 6.5-point favorite before the spread went up, while the total has also gone up from 212.5. The Sixers are an 8-point favorite almost everywhere, but can be found at -8.5. The total can be bet anywhere from 213.5 to 214.5.


As of Thursday afternoon, 72 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting 76ers. Online wager info also shows that 61 percent of bets are siding with the over.


Philadelphia shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is questionable for tonight. Shooting guard Furkan Korkmaz (foot) and point guard Markelle Fultz (shoulder) are out indefinitely. For the Magic, small forward Jonathon Simmons (wrist) and power forward Jonathan Isaac (foot) are both doubtful. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee) is out until early April, while shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) is out indefinitely.


Philadelphia rolled to a 119-105 home victory over the Grizzlies last night, with the game only becoming closer after the hosts rested its starters in the fourth quarter. It should be slightly tougher tonight as they go on the road for a back-to-back at the more rested Orlando. While the Magic are dealing with an assortment of injuries, they do have Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon both active. Vucevic in particular seems to always torch Philadelphia as it is the team which traded him away. I expect the Magic to take advantage of some Sixers fatigue to keep this closer than the 8-point spread.
