Indiana Pacers v Houston Rockets
Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers

The Orlando Magic take on the Indiana Pacers on Monday, November 21st, at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in NBA Regular Season action. The Pacers are one of the most in-form teams in the league, winning all of their last four games. They are currently 9-6, sitting fifth in the Eastern Conference standings. Their opponents, the Magic, are currently 13th in the East, with a 5-12 record. The Betting odds and predictions are down below:

The Pacers have been superb this season. They have won four on the trot and are coming off a 114-113 win over tonight's opponents, the Magic themselves. If the Pacers manage to win tonight, they will go above either the Hawks or the Cavs, who play each other. They are one of the best three-point scoring teams in the NBA, having the third-most 3PA (40.3) and 3PM (15.1).

Tyrese Haliburton has been the star for the Pacers thus far, leading them in points as well as assists. He is currently averaging 20.6-10.5 per game on 62.3% true shooting. He has scored 20 or more in 6 of his 15 appearances this season.

The Magic are on a downward trajectory this season, going 5-12 thus far. They surprised everyone when they won against the Bulls in the dying seconds of the game, but overall have struggled massively in the absence of their star men. They are currently conceding 3 more points per game than what they are scoring.

It all attributes to the injury to Paolo Banchero, who has been out injured after a fantastic start to his rookie season. Prior to his injury, he was averaging 23.5 points a night and had scored 30+ in both of his last two games.

Magic vs. Pacers Betting Prediction

The Pacers are prime favorites in this one. The Magic have not been a good watch and look nervy on defense. Going up against one of the best offensive teams in the country is not a good prospect for their defensive setup. The Pacers should cruise to a win.

Pacers: -2.5 (-106)
