The Philadelphia 76ers will welcome to town the Orlando Magic who come north to Philly in one of the better matchup on a NBA Saturday. For up to the minute spread information please check out BetOnline sportsbook.
The 76ers were one of the NBA’s most consistent teams all season, but have begun to slip of late. They have fallen all the way out of first place and have a record of 29-25 which puts then one game behind the Celtics for the Atlantic Division lead. They have currently lost two games in a row heading into Saturday and really need a win in this one pretty badly. If they want to keep pace with Boston for the division then a win in this game is a must have.
To say the Magic have had a bit of a roller coaster season is an understatement. The Dwight Howard drama has been annoying, but has not really affected there overall win loss record too much. They are still a very solid 32-23 overall on the season, but bad luck for them is that they play in an extremely competitive division with the Heat and Hawks. They trail Atlanta by a half game for second place and trail the front running Heat by 7.5 games heading into Saturday.
The 76ers are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games and have the same 2-4 ATS record in the last 6 at home as well. Overall the Magic are 13-2 in the last 15 overall vs. the Sixers, including a 10-2 ATS mark in the last 12 games played in Philadelphia.
We can see why the 76ers are the favorite here given the desperation factor that we had talked about before. The amount of points that the Magic are getting though are just too much to ignore. In games that are a toss up we tend to go with the points and we will do the same in this one and take the Magic but before wagering pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
