The Orlando Magic will look to keep from getting eliminated tonight as they take on the Pacers in game 5 of their playoff series tonight. Up to date odds for this game and all others can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Pacers just need one more win to advance to the second round of the playoffs and can get that win and advance tonight. The Pacers have been balanced all season on the offensive and defensive ends and have continued their good play so far in this series. They needed overtime to defeat the Magic in game 4 by a score of 101-99.
The Magic are now on the verge of elimination and need 3 straight wins to pull out the series. The Magic’s defense which was anchored by Dwight Howard during the regular season is struggling in his absence. Their offense has not been stellar all season, but a lot of that can be masked when you have Howard inside.
The Pacers are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games, and Indiana is just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games. The Magic have just one win in their last five games, but the Magic have played well in Indiana lately as the Magic are 6-1 in their last seven games in Indiana.
We actually think the Pacers will close the series out tonight. With that said we think the spread is way too high and we think the Magic will cover so before placing the bet get sportsbook promo codes.
