NBA betting on Friday has the Memphis Grizzlies playing their home opener against the Orlando Magic.
This will be the second game of the season for each team as Orlando opened at home on Wednesday against Atlanta while Memphis was at Houston on Wednesday. Online basketball betting odds have the Magic as small favorites in this matchup.
NBA betting history shows that Orlando is 14-10 all-time vs. Memphis. The Grizzlies though at home are 5-2 against the Magic according to online basketball betting numbers. Orlando has lost nine of the last 12 meetings overall according to NBA betting numbers. That is somewhat surprising considering the talent of both squads. Orlando is considered a serious contender in the East while Memphis is still very young. In fact, Memphis has a very young roster with 10 players 23 years old or younger on the roster according to NBA betting numbers. Rudy Gay is 22 yrs old and he led the team in scoring last season at 20.1 points per game according to NBA betting statistics. Memphis has five rookies this season that are young including O.J. Mayo who is 20 years old. The Magic also have some young stars including the dominant Dwight Howard who can take over a game at any time.
NBA betting numbers show that Memphis has won and covered 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. Last season though, the teams split their two meetings according to online basketball betting numbers with the road team winning both times. Orlando won at Memphis 112-85 on the road while they lost at home 123-119 according to NBA betting stats. The Magic were a big money maker overall for gamblers last season going 50-29-3 against the NBA betting number. Memphis was a loser last year in NBA betting, going 35-46-1 against the online basketball betting number.
In terms of the NBA betting total, six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under. At Memphis that number is really pronounced, as four of the last five games have gone under the NBA betting total.
