The Pick: Magic to win at -150 (2/3) (bet365)

The Indiana Pacers, who lost earlier this week in returning from the All-Star break, will face the Orlando Magic on Saturday, February 25th, 2023. The Magic will host the game with a start time of 7:00 PM ET.

The Pacers are heading into the game as just small underdogs, with the spread set at +3.5 (bet365). These are two teams that have very similar overall records. However, the key insight into this game has to do with Indiana’s terrible form of late and the fact that Orlando’s home record is much better than Indiana’s away record.

Pacers @ Magic – NBA: Game at a Glance

  • Indiana 26-35 overall: +3.5 (bet365)
  • Pacers' moneyline betting odds: +130
  • Orlando 25-35 overall: -3.5 (bet365)
  • Magic's moneyline betting odds: -150
  • Game time: Saturday, February 25th, 2023 @ 7:00 PM ET

The Indiana Pacers will enter the game with an overall record of 26-35 on the season. They are in good physical shape right now, as are most teams, due to the break. However, they are 12 games below .500 as a visitor this season at just 8-20. Furthermore, the Pacers have just a .150 winning rate in their last 20 games. Backing them feels like a shot in the dark.

Indiana Pacers: Recent Form Alert

  • Indiana Pacers were 23-18 (January 10th, 2023)
  • Heading into this game they are 26-35
  • The Pacers are 3-17 in their last 20 and can’t be backed

The Orlando Magic are 25-35 on the season. Technically, that’s a worse record than Indiana’s. However, the Magic are 15-15 at home. While that’s not an inspiring record, mediocrity is all it should take to handle the Pacers. Furthermore, Orlando was 5-20 at an earlier point in the season. Their 20-15 record in recent months is one that bettors should be getting behind when facing a struggling team.

Should the Magic be taken on the spread? Moneyline odds of -150 (2/3) are the better pick. There have been some games where Indiana has played their competition close, including their last game where they took Boston to overtime before losing.
