Two teams fighting in the Eastern Conference playoffs meet in the 2nd legs of their back to backs.
Both the Bulls and Magic come in off blowout, road losses on Tuesday night. The Bulls fell in Miami, while the Magic went into Dallas and put up very little fight.
Currently, both teams find themselves on the outside looking in of the playoff race.
With the loss, the Bulls were jumped by Detroit in the Eastern Conference and they now sit in 9th place, 0.5 game back of the 8th spot.
Even though they’re right there, this Bulls team certainly has a lot to worry about.
Chicago has a lot of injuries to overcome and this team is extremely thin both in guards and big men. That was certainly exposed against Miami on Tuesday as they saw the Heat put up 129 points on them.
Chicago’s defense completely collapsed from the start, as the Heat had 36, 29, 30, and 34 point quarters in the win over the Bulls. On the season, Chicago has allowed 102.3 points per game, which is a very generous number for just how bad they’ve been lately.
Chicago did get the better of this head to head series last time these two teams met in a 5 point win.
While the Bulls have a lot to worry about, Orlando has a lot more to worry about.
The Magic continue to lose and are now 4.0 games back of the 8th seed, with a lot of teams to jump in front of them. While there is time, it’s the mass amounts of teams they have to worry about that will cause problems for them.
The advantage for Orlando here, is that they get to return home to a place where they play much better basketball. Orlando has gone 16-14 SU at home and have gone 16-14 ATS.
The Magic have still been a solid bet for backers this season, going 32-25-1 ATS overall. However, the Magic started off hot this season ATS and have certainly tapered off a bit.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
This is a story of 2 teams who just haven’t found any consistency this season.
Chicago hasn’t because of the injuries, but Orlando has just simply struggled.
Give the advantage to the Magic here, they get to play at home and Chicago just simply hasn’t had any sort of defensive strategy to fix the major gaps.
