Wizards at Magic picks and predictions

Prediction

Wizards 118, Magic 113

Moneyline

I’ll take the WIZARDS (+100) to secure the win on the road in this battle of struggling teams. Washington can still lean on G Bradley Beal and F Kristaps Porzingis on the offensive end even with Kuzma sidelined.

Against the spread

WIZARDS +1.5 (-110) is how I’d bet on the spread in this contest. Washington needs every win it can get if it hopes to be playing in the postseason.

The Magic are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and the Wizards are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings with Orlando.

Over/Under

While these teams don’t play at particularly fast paces, OVER 226.5 (-108) is the pick in this matchup. Both teams are in the bottom half of the league in defensive rating.

Orlando has gone Over in each of its last 4 home games, while the Over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings between these teams.
