Orlando Magic vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Analysis

Embiid Emerges: Dominant Center Back in Action for Playoffs

It's been a great sight to see Joel Embiid's return to action for the Philadelphia 76ers. Before his injury, the dominant center was averaging over 35 points per game. Since his comeback, he's been logging an average of 29.5 minutes per game and putting up 30 points.  In his last two games, Embiid has come away with impressive double-digit rebounds with 12 and 11 respectively, retaking his pivotal role for the 76ers this season. Tyrese Maxey found himself thrust into a massive scoring role, especially during the April 7th win against the Spurs, where he scored an amazing 52 points in 53 minutes of play. However, a recent hip injury sidelined him in the last game, forcing the 76ers to focus on his recovery to ensure he returns for the postseason. As a team, Philadelphia maintains a solid offensive ability, averaging 114.6 points per game. Of note, they are solid in free throw shooting, showing off an impressive conversion rate of nearly 83%. Their regular-season finale will see them host the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

Magic in Defensive Disarray

On the other side, the Orlando Magic have stumbled in three out of their last four games, with defensive lapses emerging as a recurring issue. Allowing 124, 118, and 117 points in those losses shows off their struggles on the defensive end. Given their offensive limitations, particularly with a scoring average of just 110.4 points per game, tightening up defensively is imperative for the Magic. Leading the charge for the Magic's offense is Paolo Banchero, the former Duke standout, who's been a really constant performer, averaging 22.5 points per game across 78 appearances. He's shown his scoring abilities with five straight 20+ point games, including impressive back-to-back outings where he dropped 32 points each. Following closely behind is Franz Wagner, who nearly averages 20 points per game. Orlando will finish their regular season campaign at home against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.

Orlando Magic vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks

This is a big game for both teams. The young Magic have fallen on hard times a little bit. This is a great chance for the 76ers to grab another win, and make things really interesting in the East. With Embiid back, it is hard to imagine the Magic will have an answer for him. If the 76ers score enough, the Magic will not be able to keep up. We like the Philadelphia 76ers to win this game over the Orlando Magic. Our final betting picks for this game are the Philadelphia 76ers -6.5 over the Orlando Magic. We also like the OVER 211. Philadelphia wins this game 112-111 over the Orlando Magic. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your Magic vs 76ers picks and parlays!
