Total: -110/+196 Over

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Result: Loss

We have been betting a lot of Orlando unders lately as they have been playing strong defense, but we are going the other way here on Friday. Defense takes a lot of effort, while offense comes more naturally. This will be Orlando’s third game in four nights and they are on a back-to-back. They played a hard-fought game last night in Memphis and lost in the final seconds. That is after winning in San Antonio on Tuesday. We don’t expect them to step up on defense in this situation after those two games. They allowed 30 points in the fourth quarter to the Grizzlies last night, and we think that poor defensive effort could continue here on Friday. The Sixers have one of the worst defenses in the league. They have held an opponent to under 100 only once this season. We don’t see how they hold the Magic under the century mark here as that is a rare feat for Philly. And since the Sixers are favored that means they will probably get over 100 here as well. These teams already played about a month ago and the score totaled 204. That is close to the number we had this game handicapped at, so we think there is very nice value here on Friday for this total.
