Orlando Magic

After consecutive trips to the NBA playoffs in the 2019 and 2020 seasons, the 2020-21 season saw the Orlando Magic struggle to string wins together after a hot start to open their campaign. With the organization considering a full rebuild and head coach Steve Clifford announcing his departure after three seasons, the future looks murky for Orlando.

Bettors of the Orlando Magic went through a rough season as well: After back-to-back playoff seasons, the Magic underperformed against the betting market. With only 21 wins, Orlando went well under its DraftKings win total of 31.5 and lost moneyline bettors over 10 units over the course of the season. Fans of the Magic should keep reading for all the information needed to gamble responsibly on Orlando.

Orlando Magic Point Spreads

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. Over the course of their 2020-21 season, the Orlando Magic went 32-38-2 against the spread (ATS), losing bettors 8.75 units.

Let’s use an example to better understand the point spread bet:

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.

Orlando Magic Moneylines

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.

Orlando Magic Over/Unders

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 saw their games go 39-32-1 to the over, good for a profit of 3.80 units.

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.

Orlando Magic Props

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 Futures

There’s no need to limit yourself exclusively to bets that resolve when the clock strikes 0:00. Future wagers are bets on events and competitions that are more distant than the end of the next game. Some popular futures bets include a certain player to win MVP or another individual award, season-long win total over/unders, or bets on the Magic to make the playoffs or even win the Eastern Conference.
