Two teams that seem to be in the constant purgatory between competing and tanking will face off in Minnesota this evening when the Orlando Magic come to town to take on the Timberwolves looking for their second win in as many nights. The Magic are traveling from Toronto where they edged the regressing Raptors 114-113.
– Shark BITES
- The Magic are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games against the Timberwolves.
- The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Timberwolves’ last 8 games at home.
- The Magic are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games after a win.
Winning has not been a consistent theme for either of these bottom-feeders for quite some time but with a 3-6 record this season on the back end of back-to-backs, the 19-30 Orlando Magic could be in some trouble against a T-Wolves team that’s won five of its last six home games.
Speaking of Minnesota, the Timberwolves are currently in the best stretch of their entire season – winning seven of their last 10 games. During that span, they have some impressive wins over the Clippers and Thunder and should have fresh legs after blowing out the Nets at the Target Center a couple of nights ago.
Win/loss records aside, neither team has been a good bet this year. Their combined OVER/UNDER record is 44-50-2 and their combined ATS record is 41-53-2 – this one feels like a stay-away.
