Orlando Magic 2021-22 Season
The Orlando Magic are one of the youngest teams in the league, with the likes of Cole Anthony and Mo Bamba now joined by rookies Franz Wagner and Jalen Suggs. With that much young and inexperienced talent, it’s not surprising that the Magic find themselves at the bottom of the league and a shoe-in for a Top 3 pick in next year’s draft.
Fans of the Magic should keep reading for all the information needed to gamble responsibly on Orlando.
Betting on the Orlando Magic
Whether you bet for or against the Orlando Magic, there are plenty of ways to get yourself into the action with each of the remaining games in 2022.
- Point Spread
- Future Odds
For many bettors, a point spread represents a high degree of risk. Many instead prefer to bet on the moneyline, which is a straight-up wager on the winner of the game. Just like with point spreads, a minus sign (-) indicates the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog.
We can project what a moneyline bet would look like for the previous example:
- Miami Heat +135
- Orlando Magic -160
In the case of moneylines, the odds should be read in increments of $100. A $100 bet on the underdog Miami Heat would return $135, while it would take a wager of $160 on the favored Orlando Magic to win $100.
A classic basketball bet that all sportsbooks will offer is the point spread bet. It can best be understood as a wager on the margin of victory in an individual game. So far through the 2021-22 season, the Orlando Magic are 26-34 against the spread (ATS), putting them in the bottom 5 in the NBA.
Let’s use an example to better understand the point spread bet:
- Miami Heat (+2.5)
- Orlando Magic (-2.5)
Point spreads are always read with a favorite denoted by the minus sign (-) and the underdog with a plus sign (+). In the case of the above example, a bet on the Magic would require Orlando to win by three or more points to cover the spread, while those same bets would lose if the Magic were to lose or win by just a point or two.
Teams with little to play for often see their defensive effort drop before all else, and those who bet the total of Orlando Magic games were treated to quite a few shootouts in 2020-21. The Magic have seen their games go 32-27-1 to the over through the 2021-22 All-Star break.
An over/under, sometimes called a total bet, is a wager on the cumulative number of points scored between the two teams, regardless of who wins. If the total of a game between the Heat and the Magic was 212 points, over bettors would need the two teams to combine for 213 points or more, while under bettors would be hoping for 211 or fewer points. In the case of a combined score of exactly 212 points, all wagers on that number would push, meaning the bet would be canceled with the stake returned.
Magic Prop Bets
Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from betting on outcomes outside of the result of the game. Prop bets are often tied to an individual player’s performance or the outcome of a single event inside the game. Common examples are over/under bets on a player’s total points, assists, or rebounds. A popular prop bet in the NBA is the first basket scorer, which is a bet that resolves the first time a player scores a basket. Use the prop tools at The Action Network to find value in a wide variety of wagers.
Magic Future Odds
Expectations are low right now in Orlando with such a young group of players on the roster, but bettors should still shop for the best line to get good odds on Magic futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Magic to make the playoffs, win the Southeast Division, win the Eastern Conference, win the NBA Finals , or even individual awards like Cole Anthony winning league MVP.
