Prediction for Orlando Magic - Oklahoma City Thunder 14 February 2024

The Thunder and their matchup against the Magic will be their final game before the All-Star Game pause. Do Gilgeous-Alexander and Co. intend to give 100 per cent and beat the Magic again, as they did in a face-to-face home meeting in mid-January?

🏀 Tentative lineups for Orlando vs Oklahoma:

Orlando : Fultz - Suggs, Wagner - Banquero, Carter

Oklahoma : Gilges-Alexander - Giddy, Williams - Dort, Holmgren

📊 Statistical preview for Orlando vs Oklahoma:

  • The Magic have scored 117 or fewer points in 16 of their last 18 home games (89%). They have scored 100 points in the head-to-head meeting. With a 114.5 home scoring average, you can check Orlando's individual point total under (115.5)
  • The Magic have won 71% of their home games (17-7). "The Thunder have won 78% at home (21-6) and only 58% on the road (15-11). Notably, Gilges-Alexander and Co. have lost in their last three away meetings. It makes sense to play Orlando win for odds of 2.35

📋 Orlando Magic - Oklahoma City Thunder Match Prediction:

The Thunder go in as favourites, being one of the best teams in the league (36-17). While seemingly logical, they have suffered three straight losses on the road, with losses even to the Pistons and Jazz. Hayward, who received in the trade, is not ready to play yet, and also signed Biyombo is in question.

"Oklahoma signed Bismack Biyombo to a minimum contract. The agreement runs through the end of the season," the club said in a statement.

And you have to reckon with the home-standing Magic (17-7), who shut out the Bucks, Nuggets, Celtics, Suns, Cavaliers and Knicks, among others, over the course of the regular season. Again, we note that there are no injured players on the roster, and there is a lot of talent on the team besides Banquero and Franz Wagner: Carter, Isaac, Anthony, and Fultz are all very useful when healthy. The Magic have won five of their last six games. Let's play Orlando win at 2.35

The Magic's average home point total is 222.4, while the Thunder's away total is 232.8. The Magic have problems on the offensive end, judging by the statistical preview, but they have a top home defence (107.9). "The Thunder are less efficient on the road (118.3) than at home (123.0). They have scored 117 or fewer points in seven of their last ten road meetings (70%). The head-to-head match turned out to be a close one with a total of 212 points. You can check the total under (233)
