How To Bet On Brooklyn vs Orlando NBA Spread

Written by on March 28, 2016

On Saturday night, the Brooklyn Nets visit the Orlando Magic in NBA online betting action. The Nets (21-51) are in fourth place in the Atlantic Division but just knocked off the Cleveland Cavaliers, 104-95, on Thursday and the Indiana Pacers, 120-110, on Saturday. They take on the Heat on Monday night in Miami before heading to Orlando to take on the Magic on Tuesday. The Magic (30-43) are in fifth place in the Southeast Division and just beat the Bulls at home, 111-89, on Saturday night.

Why should you bet on the Nets?

The Brooklyn Nets have found their inner spoilers as of late, knocking off a Cleveland Cavaliers team that is reeling from a lack of leadership and then an Indiana Pacers team that is fighting for its playoff lives. Brook Lopez (23 points) has been dominant as of late, but Bojan Bogdanovic got into the act this time, adding 18 points. His three with 5:41 left gave the Nets the lead for good. This is a team playing with very little to lose, and the core is starting to gel, giving the faithful hope going into next season.

Why should you put your money on Orlando?

The fact that the Magic are missing Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic, their leading scorers, means that opponents should be able to feast on them. However, such role players as Dewayne Dedmon (18 points and 13 boards against the Bulls, both career highs) are coming on to help the Magic play competitive ball. Dedmon, long a journeyman center in the NBA, dominated Pau Gasol, of all people, to give the Magic the win.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Given that they get this game at home, I like the Magic to knock off the Nets in this one. The Nets will be heading in after a game at Miami the night before, and Orlando’s momentum will be enough to solve Brooklyn, 104-98.
