Magic at Kings picks and predictions

Prediction

Kings 124, Magic 119

Moneyline

Go ahead and PASS on the moneyline in this game at the current odds for both teams. Despite expecting the Kings (-240) to win at home, I wouldn’t advise taking them straight up due to the minimal return you’ll receive in a victory.

Against the spread

MAGIC +6.5 (-118) is the ideal way to bet the spread in this game. Even though I expect the Kings to secure the win, it’s hard to expect them to win by at least 7 points with how they’ve been playing recently.

The Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a winning home record and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games on 1 day of rest. The Kings are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

Over/Under

Even with the Magic being 1 of the worst teams in terms of offensive rating, this is a massive pace-up game for them, so OVER 238.5 (-105) seems like the correct choice here. We’ve seen some high-scoring affairs between Orlando and Sacramento recently.

The Magic have gone Over in each of their last 5 games following an ATS win. Meanwhile, the Kings have gone Over in 7 straight games against teams with a losing record and the Over is 7-0 in the last 7 meetings between these 2 teams.
