Magic vs. Bobcats: NBA Pick / Preview

NBA Betting – Red-hot Bobcats welcome struggling Magic to town

While Super Bowl odds is on the mind of most online betting players, there’s an intriguing NBA matchup to consider as Charlotte, one of the biggest surprises in the league, will host Orlando, who are one of the favorites to reach the Finals, but have been inconsistent lately.


Magic vs Bobcats odds – Saturday, January 23, 7:00 PM ET

The Magic face Sacramento at home on Friday before this game, and a win over Indiana on Wednesday snapped a three-game skid to Orlando, who went 1-3 on a Western road trip. The Magic have to figure out a way to get the ball into Dwight Howard’s hands, as “Superman” averaged 21.0 points over his last five games prior to Friday. He’s still shaky, at best, at the foul line, which hurts his chances to score more, but he hit 16 of 24 free-throws in the win over the Pacers. If he could improve just a little bit at the charity, Orlando’s sportsbook odds would increase.

The Bobcats had won six in a row and nine of their last 10 ahead of Friday’s game at Atlanta, and Charlotte leads the league in fewest points allowed. The tandem of Stephen Jackson and Gerald Wallace gives teams headaches as both are very versatile and can guard a range of positions. Sports Betting at the SportsbookPrior to Friday, only two teams had scored more than 100 points against the Bobcats. Jackson also gives the Bobcats a legitimate scoring threat, and he averaged 24.6 points over his last five outings as of Friday.

The Bobcats should be favored at home by US sportsbook odds (US sportsbook reviews), where they are a spectacular 18-4, and one only wonders how much higher they’d be in the standings if they could improve away from home. Orlando has won nine of their last 10 against the Bobcats, including two victories already this season, but the second meeting was Jackson’s debut with Charlotte, who have improved immensely since that game. The Bobcats are 4-5 in the second half of back-to-back games, while Orlando is 4-4, but Charlotte will have an extra incentive of getting some much-needed points ahead of a very tough six-game road trip out West that begins on Monday in Denver. Look for them to come out with some fire.
