Washington Wizards vs. Orlando Magic

Where: Amway Center, Orlando, FL

When: Friday, November 9, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Orlando Magic will be trying to bounce back from their loss to the Detroit Pistons when they take on the Washington Wizards, who are looking for their second road win of the season on Friday night.

Wizards Going For Second Win In Three Games

The Wizards have been disappointing this season and sport a 2-8 record. The team will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Dallas Mavericks and get their second win in three games when they face the Magic on Friday.

Washington has struggled defensively this season, even with the return of Dwight Howard, who has played in the last three games. The team is currently giving up 120.5 points per game, which is 30th in the league, and will need to play better on defense if they want to get the win on Friday.

In their last game, the Wizards gave up 70 points to the Dallas Mavericks at the half and tried to fight their way back into the game. If they do the same thing against the Magic, they will lose their second consecutive game.

Bradley Beal has been the most consistent player for the Wizards this season, averaging 22.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game. John Wall is averaging 21.5 points and 7.6 assists, while Howard is giving the team 12.7 points and eight rebounds per game.

Magic Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Magic are currently 4-7, but they are playing like a team that is trying to make the playoffs this season, and have been competitive in most of their games. They have won two of their last three games and will try to make it three wins in four games when they play the Wizards on Friday.

Unlike the Wizards, the Magic have actually been solid defensively, giving up 109.8 points per game, which is 15th in the league. Their biggest problem has been on the offensive end, where they have been inconsistent.

The Magic average 101.3 points per game, which is 29th in the league. They played well offensively in their last two wins, but struggled against the Pistons in their last game, finishing with 96 points.

Nikola Vucevic is averaging 17.5 points and 10.4 rebounds for the Magic, leading the team in scoring. Evan Fournier is averaging 16.6 points and 4.3 assists per game, while Aaron Gordon is putting up 16 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

If the Magic play well defensively and shoot the ball better than they did in their last game, they should be able to get the win over the Wizards on Friday.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

The Magic have played well against the spread against the Wizards, winning four of their last six games in D.C. The Wizards have struggled against the spread, losing their last six games against teams with losing records and four of their last five games against Eastern Conference teams.

Prediction: Orlando Magic +3

Full-Game Total Pick

The total has gone under in four of Washington’s last five games against teams with losing records and in their last four road games against teams with losing records. The total has also gone under in five of Orlando’s last six games and in the last four games between the two teams in Orlando.

Prediction: Under 219

Full-Game Prop Bet

The Magic are averaging 101.3 points per game, but they will go over 108 points in this game because they are playing one of the worst defenses in the league with the Wizards giving up 120.5 points per game.

Prediction: Magic – Total Points Over 108

Half-Time Side Pick

The Magic will win the first half because they are averaging 57.3 points per game in the first half of their last three games while the Wizards are averaging 52.3 points. They have also played better defensively, giving up 53 points per game while the Wizards are giving up 66.3 points per game.

Prediction: Orlando Magic +1.5

Half-Time Total Bet

With the Magic and Wizards giving up 119.3 combined points in the first half of their last three games, expect to see a high-scoring first half in this game, and the teams to go over the total.

Prediction: Over 112

Half-Time Prop Prediction

The Wizards are averaging 52.3 points in the first half of their last three games, and they will score less than 57 points in the first half of this game because the Magic are giving up 53 points in the first half of their last three games.

Prediction: Wizards – Total 1st Half Points Under 57
