The Magic have a record of 29-17 which puts them 5 games behind the Heat in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference. The Magic’s strength lies in their defense as they have the 4th stingiest defense in the league to score against. Their defense is led by all world center Dwight Howard who is a force in the middle. Their offense is anchored by Howard as well who is averaging 21 points per game on the season and is the team’s leading scorer.
The Bulls come into the game as one of the best teams in the NBA and they have been basically all season. They have a firm grip on the Central Division with a commanding 37-10 record. The Bulls bring the same kind of defensive pressure that the Magic do and feature a suffocating all around defensive game. Where the Bulls separate themselves is the fact that they have a great offense to go along with their stifling defense. The Bulls are 7th in the league in points scored per game and second in the league in points allowed. This well-balanced attack is what makes them one of the most feared teams in the NBA.
The over is 4-2 in the Magic’s last 6 games and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 home games for the club overall as well. The Magic are 7-1 straight up overall in their last 8 games at home. The Bulls have been on fire as well lately posting a 12-2 overall record in their last 14 along with a very impressive 9-1 road record as well in their last 10 away from the United Center. The Bulls are the pick today to bet at online sports books.
