Orlando Magic NBA Betting Lines

At the approach of the All-Star Break, the Orlando Magic are 27-23 straight up, 33-17 against the spread, and 23-27 over/under the total. Late on, Orlando has covered seven out of their last ten games. While the Magic have gone over the total in four of its previous seven matchups. Orlando leads the Southeast Division but is 7th in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Orlando is 11 games behind the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Orlando has NBA metrics of 25th for scoring offense, 20th for field goal percentage, 28th for 3-point field goal percentage, 27th for free throw percentage, and 20th for offensive rebounding. On defense, the Magic have NBA metrics of 5th for scoring defense, 19th for field goal percentage permitted, 10th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 4th for defensive rebounding.

Orlando has not made the NBA Playoffs since 2020 and has been in the postseason only twice since 2013. The Magic stand a good chance to return, but they must find additional scoring to close the deal. A big problem for the Magic is a lack of secondary scoring.

Orlando Magic History

The Orlando Magic have not been as successful as their fellow Florida expansion team, the Miami Heat. Orlando has only had spurts of relevancy, but the Magic have had some of the most exciting players in the NBA at one time or another.

Orlando had its first superstar in 1992. The Magic selected Shaquille O’Neal with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft, and O’Neal led the Magic to the NBA Finals alongside Penny Hardaway in just his third season in the league. However, Orlando failed to win a game against the Houston Rockets, and O’Neal left for Los Angeles a few years later.

The Magic had Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill on the roster in the early 2000s, and it looked like they could become title contenders with those two stars. However, Hill suffered multiple injuries, and only played in 200 games during his seven years with the Magic.

Stan Van Gundy helped lead the Magic to the 2009 NBA Finals the last time that Orlando was relevant. Dwight Howard was the star of a team that also had solid players like Rashard Lewis, Hedo Turkoglu, and Jameer Nelson, but Orlando was only able to win a single game off the Los Angeles Lakers. Howard followed in Shaq’s footsteps and left for LA a few years later.
