Basketball betting on Wednesday includes a superb ESPN televised contest between two of the best teams in the NBA as the Orlando Magic host the Boston Celtics.
NBA betting odds favor the Magic in this game against Boston. Let’s take a look at this basketball betting matchup. Basketball betting trends show that the Magic have won 6 of the last 10 games against Boston but they are only 5-5 against the basketball odds. The Magic have won four of their last five home games against Boston and they are 3-2 against the basketball odds. The teams have met three times this season with the road team winning two of the three. Earlier this month the Magic won 86-79 at Boston as two point basketball betting underdogs.
Boston has slipped in recent weeks mainly due to injuries. Kevin Garnett has missed a chunk of games and the bench players have also been hurt. Now guard Rajon Rondo has an ankle issue so things are not going smoothly for the defending champion Celtics. Boston is 3rd in the NBA in defense as basketball betting stats show and their offense is still Top 10. Paul Pierce has led the Celtics in scoring for much of the season as basketball betting statistics show.
Orlando has been excellent at home this season versus the basketball betting pointspread. The Magic are probably going to push the Celtics to third in the conference behind themselves and Cleveland. The Magic are favored in NBA betting odds in this game for good reason. Dwight Howard is having a great season and the Magic rank in the Top 10 in both offense and defense as basketball betting numbers show.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting number. Four of the last five games at Orlando between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. Since both teams play solid defense that could be the basketball betting result in this game as well.
