The Magic have been an excellent team this season on the road versus the basketball betting pointspread and they could continue that success on Saturday when they face the Nets.
Basketball betting information tells us that both teams are in the second half of back-to-backs as the Magic were home last night against the Knicks while New Jersey was at Detroit. The Magic have won 7 of the last 10 games straight up versus the Nets and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds. At New Jersey, the teams have split the last four meetings. The teams met earlier this season in Orlando and the Magic pulled out a 105-102 victory but they did not cover the 9.5 point NBA betting odds.
The Magic are one of the only teams in the NBA that is in the Top 10 on both offense and defense as basketball betting statistics show. Dwight Howard leads the team in scoring and rebounding as NBA betting numbers indicate and he gets support from Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu. The Magic should be focused on this basketball betting matchup on Saturday since they are still battling Boston for the 2nd spot in the Eastern Conference.
New Jersey is playing for next season but they are not an automatic go-against in basketball betting. They are just below .500 at home in NBA betting but they do have players that can make an impact including Devin Harris and Vince Carter. Basketball betting information tells us that the problem for the Nets is getting consistent scoring beyond Harris. Carter can be very up and down and there are not a lot of other trustworthy scoring options.
Seven of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. The game last month at Orlando went over but the previous seven games had all gone under the basketball betting line.
