Philadelphia 76ers vs. Orlando Magic Prediction

Philadelphia 76ers take on Orlando Magic on Friday (November 25) at the Amway Center in some NBA Regular Season action. The 76ers come into this game on the back of a very solid run of results. They are currently 9-9 and sit in 9th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Orlando, on the other hand, have had a torrid campaign so far. They are 5-13 thus far as they sit 13th in the standings.

The 76ers have been terrific in defense this season. They are currently rated as the 4th best team in the entire NBA with a defensive rating of 109.1. They have the best perimeter defense in the entire NBA, only allowing 10.1 3-pointers per game on an efficiency of 31.5% both of which are the best in the entire NBA. They concede an average of 106.6 points per game, which is the second lowest in the entire league.

On the offensive side, it has all been Joel Embiid. Before his injury, he was having a monstrous season. He still leads the side with 32.3 points per game in addition to 10 rebounds a night.

The Magic come into this game in pretty horrible form having lost 3 of their last 4. They have gone 5-13 thus far, due to injuries to key players in core areas. Their offensive frailties are clear as daylight, as evidenced by their attempts amounting to only 31 3-pointers per game on average, making around 11 which is one of the lowest tallies in professional basketball this campaign.

Before his long-standing injury, Paolo Banchero was firing on all cylinders for the Magic, leading the side with 23.5 points a night. Ever since he was laid low, the Orlando outfit have struggled severely on the offensive end.

76ers vs. Magic Betting Prediction

Orlando Magic should feel confident in this game as the Philadelphia side do have some notable absentees. Pound-for-pound Orlando's backcourt is superior to the 76ers' which should play the decisive factor in this one. On paper, the 76ers are strong, but analytically speaking, the Magic should have the edge.

Orlando Magic: -2.5 (-108)
