Friday December 7th brings you an Eastern Conference showdown between the Indiana Pacers and the Orlando Magic live from the Amway Center. The Pacers were winners last time out as the beat Chicago 96-90, and the Magic were losers in OT against Denver 124-118.
The Pacers have won nine out of the last 10 head to head matchups. This is the first meeting of the year between these two teams.
The Pacers are taking advantage of a soft stretch of schedule right now, as they are without their star player, Victor Oladipo. They have gone two and two over their last four, with wins over Chicago and Phoenix, and with another weaker team like Orlando, they will have a good shot of making it three of five before they travel back home to try and avenge a recent one point loss to the Sacramento Kings.
Over their last 10 head to head matchups with Orlando, the Pacers have held the Magic to an average of 99 points per contest, and they will need to do the same thing on Friday since they are missing Oladipo’s 21.4 points per game.
PG Darren Collison led all scorers against the Bulls with 23 points in 35 minutes of action. Myles Turner had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, and Domantas Sabonis brought 9 points and 11 boards in 28 minutes off the bench. Indiana only got 25 points from their bench in Tuesday nights game.
Indiana shot 46.1% from the field against Chicago, and 27.3% from beyond the arch. They went 20-24 at the free throw line, a place where they will really need to shoot well from against the Magic on Friday, especially since the Magic will probably out rebound them by a heavy margin, they can’t give away free points and expect to come out of Orlando with a win.
Injury Report: SG Victor Oladipo is listed as “out indefinitely.”
Losers of three out of their last five games coming into this one, Orlando somehow only finds themselves one game under .500 at this point on the year. With still a long way to go, the Magic, as it stands now, are holding onto the 7th spot in the East.
Evan Fournier led all Orlando players in scoring with 26 points in 38 minutes. Nikola Vucevic added 24 points and 15 rebounds. Terrence Ross had 17 points in 32 minutes off the bench in a game where the Magic had 6 players in double digits in scoring.
Orlando shot 47.4% from the floor Wednesday night against Denver. They were lights out from deep, hitting 40.8% of their three point shots, and went a perfect 8-8 at the free throw line. They did nearly everything right against the West’s top team, except they allowed the Nuggets to gain an +11 in the rebound margin.
Injury Report: C Timofey Mozgov is listed as “out indefinitely.”
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Both teams seem to just be treading water at this point in the season, and luckily for the both of them that they play in the East where you don’t have to be a good basketball team to get into the playoffs at the end of the year.
With that said, Indiana is still the better of the two teams in this matchup, and they have completely dominated Orlando over the past couple of years, I would expect that domination to continue here on Friday
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers ATS
Take Indiana to win this game on the road. I expect a close low scoring game, so if the betting number is 220 or higher, take the UNDER for sure.
