Orlando will play host to visiting Detroit as they look to snap their seven-game losing skid. Neither squad has been in great form as Orlando has gone 3-7 in their last 10, while Detroit has gone 4-6 in their last 10.
Detroit opened up as 2.5 point favorites, while the line has remained unchanged thus far. The public is split on this matchup.
Detroit was able to snap their three-game losing streak with a win over Milwaukee 110-87 while also covering the spread. They should have revenge on their minds after losing to Orlando earlier this season 89-102.
Their offense has been pretty bleak as they are rated 21st in the league. The road has also been unkind as they rank 26th in PPG, 26th in FG% and 16th in 3PT%.
On the defensive side they are rated 13th overall. On the road they rank 10th in PPG, 20th in FG%, 30th in 3PT% and 15th in RPG.
While they are floating around mediocrity, they are still in the playoff hunt in the weak East, so they need to start playing with some urgency. They have gone 0-5 in their last five road games, so expect them to be eager to end that skid against this lowly Orlando team who has gone 11-18 at home.
In their last contest they faltered to Toronto as they couldn’t keep pace with them in the fourth quarter eventually losing 104-117. Even though their season is over, Orlando should be feeling desperate to get a win after losing seven straight.
They sport a lower tier offense as they are rated 19th overall. At home they rank 21st in PPG, 19th in FG% and 24th in 3PT%.
Defensively it has been a crap-shoot as they haven’t been playing with much intensity evidenced by their 27th rated defense. At home they rank 27th in PPG, 23rd in FG%, 23rd in 3PT% and 26th in RPG.
Orlando has played hard against Detroit in recent history going 5-0 ATS against them. They’re losing streak should leave them feeling motivated, while they should also be eager to send their loyal fans home with a victory.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction: Orlando ends seven-game skid
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Orlando +2.5
While I feel Orlando will come out swinging, this game means more to Detroit as they are still in playoff contention. However, this doesn’t mean Detroit will come out and blow the roof off the place with the way they’ve been playing.
Detroit’s offense just hasn’t been playing at a high level shooting only 43% in their last five contests. With the way Detroit plays on the road, I’ll take the home team and the free points in what should be a close matchup.
