Despite the fact that the Orlando Magic is sitting very pretty in the Eastern Conference, their recent performances is not that good and if they do not improve it quickly, they may not be called a legitimate title contender.
Their recent record against the Phoenix Suns is very good but bouncing back from a humiliating defeat is never easy and it may count against them. Yesterday, the Suns were defeated by the Miami Heat and were only able to score just 34 points in the second portion of the game. At this point in time, the Magic is in third spot in the Eastern Conference but they have not managed to score 60 points in their last two matches.
Simply put, one can safely say that the Magic is not in solid state of mind and are therefore committing mistakes. On the other hand, the Suns need to express themselves and play as a team rather than rely on the individual brilliance of their players. With the Magic also feeling the heat, it may be a right time for the Suns to come out attacking and play with a positive attitude.
In terms of statistics, the Suns have not won in Orlando for quite a long time and that is a real worry for them. If you are not confident, you are going to struggle, and that is what exactly happening with Suns, as we saw last night in Miami.
Coming to the sports betting odds, the Orlando Magic is a strong favorite at 1.27 while the Phoenix Suns are trading at 4.5. In the handicap market, you can back Phoenix Suns with an eight-point start at the odds of 1.90, which is not a bad bet. On the other hand, if you are of the view that Orlando Magic is going to cover this line, you back them at 2.02.
Another good betting market that you can focus on is the half time match NBA odds market where the Magic is available to back at 1.50 while the Suns are trading at 2.96 currently.
