The Detroit Pistons will look to snap a 3 game losing streak this Tuesday, as they take on the Orlando Magic at Amway Center in what the bookmakers seem to think will be a slow paced game with the total currently at 208.5.
The bookmakers have a very good reason to post a total that low as well with both of these teams last game coming against each other in what ended up being a 105-96 win for the Orlando Magic.
The Detroit Pistons allowed Vucevic to go nuts on the inside with 37 points in that game and honestly I do not really see the Pistons being able to come up with an answer for the Magic’s big-man and I would expect him to once again put up solid numbers.
The Orlando defense was also smothering allowing just 43% shooting from the field and only 30% from deep and although shooting is extremely variant I would not expect any type of offensive explosion here by Detroit.
Delon Wright has had a solid season averaging around a 10/4/4 scoreline, but he will be out for this contest, as he is currently listed on the injury report and has already been ruled out.
I had a lot of hope for the Orlando Magic this year, as their seemed to be some solid reason for optimism surrounding this team, but unfortunately we will not really know how good this team could have been, as they have been ravaged by injuries.
The Southeast is very noncompetitive, though, so even though this team sits at 13-18 they only sit 2 games back of first in their division and they were able to win their last 3 games straight, so their very well might be some fight in this Orlando team.
This represents a prime opportunity to make it 4 in a row and creep closer to the top of the division and with the way the Pistons have been playing and the way this matchup went just a day ago that really is the only way I see this game going with the Magic just having way more talent even with the injuries.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
The Magic are a way better team and I would have put this line in the -5 range for Orlando, so I think their is some major line value here for the Magic to cover. The money is coming for the Magic in early betting as well with about 85% of the money being on the Magic so this line is very likely to move before tip-off.
I do not see the Pistons having any answer for Vicevic and even if they try to concentrate their defense on Vucevic the Magic still have enough weapons to hurt the Pistons on the wings so this is a lose-lose for the Pistons defense.
