It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Friday night at the Capital One Arena. The Orlando Magic come to town to take on the Washington Wizards.
This will be the second meeting of the year between the two teams. The first time these two teams met the Wizards came out ahead 130-103.
The last three match ups between the two teams has covered the over.
Not many people expected the Orlando Magic to be really good this year, but not many people expected them to be this bad either.
They come into this game having lost six games in a row, and nine of their last ten. During this ten game stretch they have also only covered three spreads.
For the Magic they are decent offensive team averaging 104.9 points per game. The struggles are on the defensive side of the ball though.
They are currently giving up almost 111 points per game, and letting opponents shoot 47.2 percent from the field.
The first time these two teams met they gave up 130 points, and were blown out. If they want any chance to win this game they need to find a way to slow down the pace of play, and not let the Wizards turn this into a track meet.
If this game is turned into a track meet, they are going to have a lot of problems having enough offense to win, much less cover the spread.
On the other side of this match up is the Washington Wizards, who have been one of the most inconsistent teams across the league.
They had won four straight games including a big win over the Rockets, but now they have taken a step back again losing their last two games to Utah and Milwaukee.
For the Wizards they are a much better offensive team at home. They are currently averaging 110 points per game at home, compared to just 106 points on the road.
The defense has been very similar on the road and at home though. They are currently giving up 104.1 points per game which isn’t terrible, but there are nights they look really bad defensively.
To win this game the Wizards need to push the pace of play and try to make the Magic’s defense really uncomfortable early on.
If they can get a big lead there is a chance the Magic might just fold, and they can run away with this game.
