Heat at Magic picks and predictions

Prediction

Heat 115, Magic 108

Moneyline

PASS.

At -140 odds, the moneyline is not worth a play for the Heat.

Against the spread

LEAN MIAMI -2.5 (-105).

Orlando is on a 3-game home losing streak and is just 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games. The Magic are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games.

Miami has the 2nd best defense in the NBA in opponent points per game (109.1) and is facing an Orlando offense that ranks 27th in points per game (111.3). Expect the Heat to overwhelm the Magic offense and come out of Orlando with a victory.

Over/Under

BET OVER 220.5 (-105).

The Over is 4-1 in the Magic’s last 5 games including 3-0 in their last 3 home games. It is also 4-0 in their last 4 games when their opponent scores 100 or more points in their previous game. As it stands, 220.5 would be tied for the lowest closing line in the Magic’s last 10 games.
