The Orlando Magic continue at home and will now host the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Amway Center on Wednesday night. These teams faced each other twice last season and the Magic won both games as underdogs.
The Magic have lost 3 their last 5 games of the season and are 4-4 at home with a 4-10 record overall ranking 4th in the Southeast division. In their last game at home, they lost 111-105 against the Charlotte Hornets. Bol Bol and Chuma Okeke made two 3-pointers each to launch Orlando's only serious run of the game, but the Magic could get no closer than seven.
Paolo Banchero who has been out for the last 3 games is leading the team with 23.5 points per game. Carter Jr. leads the team in rebounds with 9.1 per game while Cole Anthony has 4.3 assists per game for Orlando.
In their last 10 games the Magic are 4-6, averaging 111.2 points, 45.5 rebounds, 24.1 assists, 6.2 steals and 3.6 blocks per game while shooting 41.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 111.5 points per game.
The Timberwolves get here with a 6-8 record and are 2-3 on the road so far this season ranking 4th in the Northwest. In their last game on the road, they beat the Cavaliers 129-124 where D’Angelo Russell had season highs of 30 points and 12 assists and Karl-Anthony Towns scored 29 points to help the Timberwolves overcome Garland’s onslaught.
Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 21.3 points, 8 rebounds and 5.3 assists for the Timberwolves. Anthony Edwards is averaging 23 points over the last 7 games for Minnesota.
In their last 10 games the Twolves are 4-6, averaging 113.5 points, 42.1 rebounds, 26.3 assists, 8.8 steals and 4.3 blocks per game while shooting 47.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.6 points per game.
Minnesota are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games against Orlando.
Minnesota are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Orlando.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Minnesota's last 7 games on the road.
Minnesota are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games when playing on the road against Orlando.
Orlando are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.
Orlando are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Orlando's last 5 games against Minnesota.
Orlando are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
The Timberwolves bounced back and beat the Cavs on the road by 5 points but they have struggled against the Magic losing 12 of their last 14 games in Orlando. The Magic are not having a good season so far and have won only 4 games and they still have a lot of injuries. With the way the Twolves looked in their last game I can't see how the Magic can keep up with them. Take the Twolves.
PICK: Timberwolves -5 (-110)
