The 76ers and Orlando Magic both look to get themselves back into the win column Wednesday night when the teams meet in Orlando.
The Magic have dropped 3 straight games while the 76ers have gone 1-1 in their past 2, which is quite the accomplishment for them considering they have just 5 wins on the season.
These two teams have met once this season, back on 11/7 when the Magic knocked off the 76ers 105-97.
The 76ers have had a pair of wins in the month of January, which can be considered a major accomplishment this month.
Philadelphia beat Minnesota back on 1/4 and then grabbed their 2nd win of the month 2 games ago when they knocked off Portland on 1/16. The 76ers played well in their loss on Monday in New York as they took the Knicks to double overtime inside MSG before eventually falling 119-113.
While the 76ers playing better, they’re certainly front runners for having the worst record in the NBA, but have some very winnable games coming up. Philadelphia will come home to host Boston and Phoenix after this one in Orlando before finishing the month against Detroit and then a sure loss against Golden State.
The 76ers bring a 2-22 SU record into this matchup in Orlando and have gone .500 ATS in those 24 games, as they sit with a 12-12 ATS record.
The Magic look to be in store for a battle for a bottom seed in the NBA Eastern Conference this season.
The Magic have gone 20-20 this season and sit 9th in the Eastern Conference. Currently, they are 1 game behind the Celtics for the 8 seed and just 8.5 games off the pace of first place.
Things have been extremely tough on them as of late as Orlando has dropped 3 straight games, 2 of which have been close with the other being an absolute blowout. Orlando fell by 6 at home to Washington and in overtime to Toronto last week.
They then went into Atlanta on Monday and were dominated from the opening tip. The Hawks opened up a 13 point lead at the half and never allowed Orlando to gain any steam offensively.
Orlando brings in a 12-8 SU record at home this season.

Free NBA Prediction:
The 76ers have rarely put together good strings of play. While they dropped their last game, they still have played tough in their last 2.
This is a nice spot for them to put up a fight as Orlando continues to struggle on the offensively end of the floor.
