Phoenix Suns vs Orlando Magic Betting Analysis

The Orlando Magic visit the Phoenix Suns for an interconference clash on Thursday evening. The Suns lost their third straight game 116-104 at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Magic lost their fourth game in five tries 132-114 on the road against the San Antonio Spurs.

This will be the second and final game in a regular season series the Magic lead 1-0 after beating Phoenix 114-97 in Orlando. Tip-off is scheduled for 10:00 PM EST/7:00 PST on NBATV.

Phoenix Suns vs Orlando Magic Team Total Props

The Phoenix Suns are 8 point home favorites with a total set at 228. This sets the Magic team total at 109.5 and the Suns at 118.5. Orlando has allowed 122 points or more in 5 of their last 7 games while allowing 114 & 106 in the other two games.

The Suns are actually in a bit of scoring rough patch with only 104 and 112 points in their last two games. However they scored 125+ points in four straight games prior to that. After three straight losses, I’m expecting a focused effort by the Suns at home. Give me the Phoenix team total over.

Prediction: Phoenix Suns Team Total Over 118.5 -115 Draftkings

Phoenix Suns vs Orlando Magic Player Points Props

Considering we rolled with the over for the Suns team total, their players overs are a natural place to look. De’Andre Ayton has point a total set at 19.5 and he has surpassed that mark in two of three games since Kevin Durant went down with injury witb 16, 27 & 22 points.

The 16 point effort in his last game was due to a horrendous 8-19 shooting effort. If Ayton gets 19 shots again I like our chances as he has scored 20 points in 20 of 23 games with 15+ field goal attempts. The Magic have allowed 11 of the last 12 centers with 12+ field goal attempts to score 20 points or more.

In Aytons last four games against Orlando, he has scored 21, 17, 14 & 21 points. The games he went under he only played 25 & 26 minutes. The Suns are going to need Ayton on the court tonight, give me his over.

Prediction: Deandre Ayton OVER 19.5 Points -125 Draftkings

Franz Wagner has a point total set at 16.5 points and he has actually cleared that in 46 of 68 games for a 68% success rate on the season. He has cleared this total in 5 of his last 8 games.

However all five overs were at home with 17, 21, 24, 24 & 18 points, while the three unders were on the road with 11, 9 & 11 points. This is a season long trend as Wagner has scored 17+ points in 26 of 34 games for a 76% success rate but fallen short in 20 of 34 games for a 59% success rate.

Wagner scored 17 points against Phoenix in November, but guess what? That game was at home. This one is on the road, give me the under.

Prediction: Franz Wagner Under 16.5 Points -130 Draftkings

Andy Lang has lived in Indianapolis his whole life, and like most people from the Hoosier State, he became fascinated with motor sports. That interest in motor sports turned into a desire to make money off the sport through fantasy contests and sports betting. Like most, he took his lumps when he first got started, but now he is one of the most respected NASCAR bettors in the industry. Andy has expanded that sports betting experience to become profitable in a number of other sports, transforming this interest from a side hobby to a major source of income.
