San Antonio vs Orlando Expert Pick
We have barely crossed the halfway mark of the NBA season and there is already talk about the winner of the championship being either the Golden State Warriors or San Antonio Spurs. While these two teams have been the class of the league, you never know what might happen between now and the start of the playoffs. The Spurs will try to keep their magical season rolling when they head into the Amway Center to face the Magic on Wednesday.

How to bet San Antonio Spurs Vs Orlando Magic TV and Game Information
It really won’t be any surprise to see the Spurs installed as a pretty heavy favorite for this one, especially since they just recently beat the Magic in a comfortable win. It would be wise not to discount Orlando, though, as they are coming off back to back wins that can probably best be described as unexpected.
Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs (43-8) are about to embark on an 8-game road trip that is sure to be a pretty good test for them. This will be the second game in consecutive nights for the Spurs, as they will get things rolling in Miami on Tuesday night. San Antonio are not likely to be too concerned about packing their bags and heading out on an extended trip, as they have put together a 15-8 record on the road so far this season. They have also done a pretty good job of brushing teams with a losing record aside, as they have lost just 2 of the 27 games that they have played against those teams. The Spurs are 8-2 in their last 10 games, which includes a 107-92 win over the Magic to start the month of February. San Antonio are averaging 104.9 PPG, and are giving up just 91.5 PPG.
Why bet on the Orlando Magic
It has been a rough stretch of games for the Magic (23-28), who are just 3-7 in their last 10, but they appear to have broken out in a big way with back to back wins over the Atlanta Hawks. Those two wins moved the Magic to within 3 games of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and they will be looking to build enough momentum to close that gap in the coming weeks. The next 3 games for Orlando are at home, and since they are 2 games over the .500 mark on their own court this season, you would expect them to come away with something from that bunch. All 8 of the losses that the Spurs have taken this season have been on the road, so the Magic may sense that they have a shot in this one. Orlando are averaging 99.5 PPG, and are giving up 100.9 PPG.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Playing games on consecutive nights on the road is tough, but I don’t see it being much of a problem for the Spurs here. I like San Antonio to get the win in very similar style to the way they beat the Magic last time out.
