Orlando Magic vs. Washington Wizards

Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, DC

When: Monday, November 12, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Washington Wizards will be trying to win their second consecutive game when they face the Orlando Magic, who will be playing their second game of a back-to-back when they play on Monday night.

Magic Going For Second Straight Win Over Wizards

The Magic will be playing the second game of their two-game road trip, but they will be going into this game with a lot of confidence because they cruised to an easy win over the Wizards when they played during the week.

Orlando will once again be relying on its defense to smother the Wizards and help the team get the win. The Magic are holding opponents to 109.7 points per game, which is 12th in the league, and held the Wizards to 108 points the last time they played.

Since they are playing in Washington this time around, the Magic will need to play with more intensity on the defensive end if they want to get the win.

Offensively, the Magic have struggled this season, averaging 102.6 points per game. They shot the ball well in their first meeting with the Wizards, making 51.2 percent of their field goals. They will be hoping for similar results when they play on Monday night.

Nikola Vucevic is leading the way for the Magic, averaging 17.8 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Evan Fournier is averaging 16.5 points and 4.4 rebounds off the bench, while Aaron Gordon is putting up 16.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.

Wizards Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Wizards managed to snap their two-game losing streak when they played the Miami Heat on Saturday. They will be going for their second win in a row and also try to make up for their previous loss when they face the Magic for the second time in a week.

The Wizards have struggled defensively this season, giving up 119.3 points per game, which is 30th in the league. They played better against the Heat in their last game, holding Miami to 110 points. They will be hoping they can keep up the solid defensive play against the Magic on Monday.

Washington has played better on the offensive end, averaging 110.5 points per game, which is 16th in the league. They scored 116 points against the Heat after shooting 48 percent from the field.

Bradley Beal leads the Wizards with 22.6 points per game. He is also averaging 4.4 rebounds and 3.7assists per game. John Wall is the team’s second-leading scorer averaging 21.8 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, while Kelly Oubre Jr. is averaging 13 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Wizards have struggled against the spread, losing four of their last five home games and 11 of their last 14 games. The Magic have done better against the spread, winning 15 of their last 23 road games and eight of their last 10 games when playing the second game of a back-to-back.

Prediction: Orlando Magic +7.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone under in Orlando’s last eight road games against teams with losing records and in eight of their last 10 games against Eastern Conference teams. The total has also gone under in four of Washington’s last five games when playing on one day’s rest.

Prediction: Under 222

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

John Wall is averaging 21.8 points per game this season, but he should be able to go over 22.5 points in this game because he is averaging 23.2 points in his last five games.

Prediction: John Wall (WAS) Total Points Over 22.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Magic will win the first half of this game because they have played better than the Wizards in the first half. The Magic are averaging 57.3 points in the first half of their last three games, while the Wizards are averaging 51.7 points. The Magic are also giving up fewer points, holding opponents to 51 points in the first half while the Wizards are giving up 64.7 points.

Prediction: Orlando Magic +4.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The total will stay under in the first half because the Magic will likely score less than their season average since their playing on consecutive nights. The Wizards will also struggle to score against Orlando’s defense, making the under the best bet here.

Prediction: Under 113

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Magic are averaging 59.7 points in the first half of their last three games and they should be able to go over 54.5 points against the Wizards because Washington is giving up 64.7 points in the first half of their last three games.

Prediction: Magic – Total 1st Half Points Over 54.5
