4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Orlando Magic ML
Before being blown out in Milwaukee, the Orlando Magic had come off some close games to good opponents. Leading up to that game they had covered the spread in three straight games. Three out of the teams past five games have gone over the betting line total.
So far, when the Hornets win, most of these contests are close games. A key reason for this is their inability to slow down opponents. On the season, opponents are averaging 113 points per game with an effective field goal percentage of 52.9%.
Even though the Hornets should win the game, their defensive woes will keep it closer than it should be.
