4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Orlando Magic +4
The Washington Wizards are coming into this game looking to play an up-tempo style of basketball. However, when the Magic take on fast-paced teams, they have limited the game’s possessions to four possessions below expectation.
This change of pace will have a significant impact on the Wizards whose win percentage drops when playing slower-paced teams.
Defensively, both of these teams struggle to limit their opponent’s scoring output. In this game, I see the Magic experiencing the greater benefit of playing a bad defensive team.
Both teams should be able to work the ball inside, helping their overall shooting percentage numbers. Look for this contest to come down to the wire, putting Orlando firmly within the spread.
