Orlando Magic vs New York Knicks: Later in Orlando, the Magic host the Knicks in another round of the NBA
These are teams that are making somewhat similar campaigns of this edition.
The Orlando Magic present a record of 18 victories and 39 losses, and with that they are occupying the 14th place of their conference, only being ahead of the Hawks.
However, on the last couple of rounds the Magic have improved their performances and have bene playing better basketball, where, despite losing on the last 3 games.
They put up good fights against their opponents, and before that negative streak, they had been able to conquer 3 consecutive wins over the Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks.
The Knicks were making a good campaign considering the quality of their roster, that has the power forwards Kristaps Porzingis as their main highlight.
However, the Knicks’ performances on the last couple of games has been very poor, being winless for 8 consecutive matches and, if that wasn’t enough, they have just lost their key player after he suffered a serious injury.
On the standings, they occupy the 10th place of the Eastern Conference with 23 victories and 36 losses.
Playing on the road, their record is even worse, having 7 victories and 24 losses playing in that condition
Orlando Magic vs New York Knicks – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Knicks are making a slightly better campaign than the Magic this season.
However, the Magic’s moment of form is better because they have been presenting more consistent basketball in the last couple of games.
These are similar rosters in terms of quality, but while the hosts will count with most of their players available, the Knicks won’t count with Kristaps Porzingis, who is the best player of the team.
Therefore, I believe that the Magic will win tonight.
|Orlando Magic -3.5||
