Saturday’s NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and the Orlando Magic is an exciting matchup. Both teams are fighting for a better position in the Eastern Conference, and this game could potentially affect their playoff chances. As expert NBA sports handicappers, we will provide our opinion on who will win this game and the final score. We will also analyze the injury list and examine the odds for the Pacers vs. Magic matchup at Sportsbook.
Both teams have a clean injury list, which is good news for NBA fans as they will see their top players in action. However, checking the latest information on the NBA’s official injury report is always important in case of any last-minute changes.
We predict the Orlando Magic will win this game against the Indiana Pacers. Our final score prediction is Pacers 113 and Magic 116. We believe that the Magic will be able to cover the spread and win the game by at least 3 points.
Although the Pacers have some value at (+120), we wouldn’t place a moneyline bet on this game. The Magic have a better overall record and have won 5 of their last eight games, giving them an edge over the Pacers. Therefore, focusing on this game’s spread and over/under bets is better.
Against The Spread
We recommend taking the Magic to cover the spread at -2.5 (-108). The Magic have been playing well at home, winning two of their last three games, and they have an excellent record of 17-13 ATS at the Amway Center. On the other hand, the Pacers have struggled on the road, with a 12-16 ATS record. Additionally, the Magic are 14-9-1 ATS after a victory, which they will have in this case.
Our over/under bet recommendation is UNDER 232.5 (-112). The Magic have lost six of their last seven games, and four of their last six games have seen them tally fewer than 110 points. The Pacers have also struggled to score, with nine of their previous ten games tallying 117 points or fewer. In addition, neither team has a go-to superstar who can score 20 points, which makes the underbet a more likely outcome.
We hope our analysis and recommendations have helped guide you towards making informed bets on the Pacers vs. Magic game. We predict that the Orlando Magic will win this game by a narrow margin, and the final score will be 116-113 in their favor. Always gamble responsibly and check the latest injury updates before placing your bets.
