Magic at Lakers picks and predictions


Lakers 115, Magic 105



The Lakers (-240) have not lost 3 straight games in over a month and should beat the Magic Sunday. However, there is no need to risk more than twice your potential profit on the moneyline when the Lakers should win by margin. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET LAKERS -5.5 (-118).

The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after a loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 at home vs. teams with a road-winning percentage below .400.

The Magic are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games after a win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 when playing on the 2nd night of a back-to-back. Look for the Lakers to bounce back after 2 straight losses and take advantage of a bad spot for Orlando.


BET UNDER 231.5 (-112).

The Under is 9-3-1 in the Lakers’ last 13 games and 8-1 in their last 9 at home.

The Under has hit in 19 of the last 23 meetings between these teams in Los Angeles and Sunday’s matchup should be another low-scoring affair as the Lakers tighten up defensively after back-to-back losses.
