Magic vs. Celtics Prediction

Celtics too risky to lay double digits vs. Magic? NBA Predictions 3/31/17

Are the Celtics a too risky play tonight as a double-digit home favorite versus the Magic tonight at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Celtics are now 10.5-point home favorites versus the Magic, who opened as 11-point underdogs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 217.5 points after hitting the board at 216.

Orlando has dropped seven of its last 10 games and is 2-8 against the spread during that same span. The Magic are also just 29-45 against the number on the season and are 18-19 at the betting window on the road this year.

Boston is now 7-3 on the hardwood over their last 10 games but are just 4-6 against the spread during that same span. The Celtics are 37-36 against the spread this season but are just 16-21 at the betting window at home this year.

OUR PREDICTION: The Magic are 9-26-1 against the spread in their last 36 games in Boston and are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus the Celtics overall. The favorite has also cashed in four of their last five games between these two teams and the home team is 19-7-1 at the betting window in the last 27 meetings. The Magic were up virtually the entire game against the Thunder two nights ago as a 5-point home underdog, went to overtime and wound up losing by 8. I don't trust them, even as a double-digit dog.
