On Friday evening, the Sixers and Magic meet in an Eastern Conference matchup. Philadelphia will be without PG/PF Ben Simmons, which will alter their offensive scheme a bit. The Magic, meanwhile are on a two-game losing streak. Let’s get into our Sixers-Magic betting preview, including odds, boosts, and picks.
The Sixers will face off against their former #1 overall draft pick Markelle Fultz, who’s averaging 10.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in the Orlando bubble. The Magic have won both matchups between the teams this season, though the lopsided 112-97 result in November came against a Sixers squad without franchise center Joel Embiid.
The Magic enter play on a two-game losing streak, losing most recently to the Toronto Raptors 109-99. The Sixers are trending in the opposite direction, having beaten the San Antonio Spurs and the lowly Washington Wizards.
