Magic vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick
Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for this game with a foot injury, but that's been the case for the last few games he has suited up for. The 76ers have the depth to defeat the Magic with or without their star center as James Harden and Tyrese Maxey are each averaging over 21.0 points per game.
Philadelphia owns one of the best average scoring margins at home (+5.7), while Orlando sports one of the worst average scoring margins on the road (-6.3) this season. A lot of that has to do with the fact that the 76ers ranks fifth in offensive efficiency and the Magic check in 25th in that category.
Philadelphia hasn't lost to Orlando since December of 2019, so backing the 76ers is the move here.
Final Score Prediction: Magic: 111 | 76ers: 126
Magic vs. 76ers Best Bet
This is far from an ideal matchup for the Magic. 52.4% of Orlando's points come from two-point range, but Philadelphia ranks seventh in points in the paint allowed per home game (46.5). The 76ers have Embiid as well as Montrezl Harrell defending the rim with bruising physicality every single night.
The 76ers' average scoring margin in its 10-game winning streak against the Magic is +13.5 and they are 8-2 against the spread (ATS) during that span. Philadelphia is also 4-1 ATS in its last five games overall. Momentum is on the side of the home team and that makes Philly a clear choice on Monday.
Bet: Philadelphia 76ers -9.5 (-112)
