Why should you bet on the Magic?

The Magic got pummeled in Detroit on Wednesday night, and their porous defense was the main culprit. They allowed Detroit to shoot 54 percent from the field, including 11 of 24 from downtown, as Magic defenders left the Pistons alone to keep firing from behind the arc. Tobias Harris posted 18 points, Reggie Jackson added 16 (and nine assists). The Magic now have a five-game losing streak. However, the Bulls are having enough issues of their own to where the Magic could prevail at home.

Why should you put your money on Chicago?

The Bulls had won three straight before getting swept by the Knicks, and Taj Gibson has had enough of the inconsistency. In the wake of the two embarrassing losses, he called out his teammates for “just laying down” against “trash teams” in the league. The Bulls are 1 ½ games out of the last playoff position in the Eastern Conference, and there are only 11 games left in their regular season schedule. The Bulls have played well with their backs against the wall before, and I like their ability to take advantage of Orlando’s defensive issues — if the “right” Bulls show up.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I’m picking the Bulls to get back in the win column as they try to get into the postseason again. I’m predicting a 102-93 win for Chicago.
