The Orlando Magic will be on the road to take on the Detroit Pistons on Saturday, January 8th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Little Caesars Arena.
Detroit opened up as a 3 point favorite and that number is now down to 2. The total has gone from 214 to 210.5.
It would be kind of me to say that the Magic have been dreadful this year. Pretty much nothing has gone well for them in the 2021-2022 season.
This team has lost seven games in a row. Would it shock me if they lost eight in a row? That would be a NO.
Sometimes when teams struggle, people do not see it coming, but that is not the case with this team. I think everyone to a man thought this team would have a lot of issues this year.
They are a perfect example of a team that is in total rebuild mode. It is going to take multiple successful drafts in a row for them to be relevant again.
Orlando last played on Wednesday, where they lost to the Philadelphia 76ers by a score of 116-106. A sloppy fourth quarter is what did this team in for the game.
Overall, the offense was not the issue for them in their last game, as six players reached double figures. The leading scorer was Cole Anthony, who had 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. Also, Mo Bamba added in 19 points and 8 boards.
Similar to the Magic, things have also gone very poorly for the Pistons. It has and will continue to be a long season for this crew.
Detroit comes into this contest with a record of 7-30. The only team that is below them in the standings is the aforementioned Orlando Magic.
I could see these guys being pretty good in the future, but it is going to take some time. They have some young, good players, but it will take some for them to develop into their full potential.
They lost to the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 118-88 on Thursday. It is going to be hard for them to play any worse than they did against Memphis when they go against the Magic.
In their last game, the offense was just not good enough. It is very hard to win games in the NBA when you score just 88 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Magic are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games.
- The Magic are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
- The Pistons are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.
- The Pistons are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games played on a Saturday.
Orlando Magic vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Analysis:
Wow, this is a very ugly ball game. I feel bad for the fans that have to watch it truthfully.
Two of the worst teams in basketball will be squaring off. It must be hard to get excited for a contest such as this one.
Detroit will have to be much better than they were in their last game if they wish to get the win on Saturday. I get they are not playing a powerhouse, but you cannot play that poorly and expect to win games, no matter who you are playing.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic ATS
Given how bad both of these teams have been, it is very hard to have much confidence in either of them. With that said, I like Orlando a bit more in this spot, even though it is hard to really trust them.
For me, this pick is more about how bad Detroit is, rather than how good Orlando is. At this point, I do not think the Pistons should be laying 2 points to anyone.
