In this all-Eastern battle between two squads sitting in and out of the playoff places of the conference, the Orlando Magic (35-38), who are just one win away from the 8th Heat and want to extend their current winning streak, are hosting the third Philadelphia 76ers (47-26), who on the other hand are looking to bounce back after their latest defeat.

Spread: Orlando Magic +2
Orlando Magic have a 35-38 record (38-34-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the East. They have four consecutive wins and in their last game they won at home against the Grizzlies with a 123-119 score in overtime, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Nikola Vucevic with 20.7 ppg, adding 3.9 dimes and a team high 12.1 boards per game. He is followed by Aaron Gordon with 16 ppg, 3.7 dimes and 7.3 boards per game.
Philadelphia 76ers have a 47-26 record (34-39 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third place of the East. In their last game they saw a six-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Hawks with a 127-129 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Joel Embiid with 27.5 ppg, adding a team high 13.8 boards per game. He is followed by Tobias Harris with 19.2 ppg and 8.2 boards per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Sixers lead the Magic 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Magic have a 20-16 home record, while the Sixers are 18-17 on the road. Sixers are better offensively, scoring 115.3 ppg to Magic’s 106.1, while Magic are better defensively, allowing 106.3 ppg to Sixers’ 112 ppg. Sixers have better percentages both in field goals (47.1% to 45%) and in 3-pointers (35.9% to 35.4%). They are also better in dimes made (27 to 25.1) and in boards grabbed (47.6 to 45.3), while Magic are better in turnovers committed (12.8 to 14.8). Sixers are the favorite and Vegas odds give them a -2 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the road victory.
