What there is to know
The Orlando Magic could have tired legs after a clash yesterday as they head down the road against the Detroit Pistons at 7 p.m. ET on October 30 at Little Caesars Arena. Since both of these teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a bit of extra motivation going into this game.
Orlando was just a bucket away from victory on Friday and lost 110-109 to the Toronto Raptors. One thing that held back the Magic was poor play from little forward Franz Wagner, who didn’t have his best game: he finished with ten points on a 4-for-12 shot during his 33 minutes on the pitch.
Meanwhile, Detroit fell to the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, losing 110-102. Shooting goaltender Saddiq Bey (19 points) was Detroit’s top scorer.
Orlando is expected to lose this next by 6. Those who were lucky with them ATS on Friday may want to suspend their bets this time around as the team have yet to streak back-to-back ATS wins.
The losses put Orlando at 1-5 and the Pistons at 0-4. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kick-off: The Magic enter the competition with the fifth fewest points per game in the league, accumulating just 102.2 points on average. The Detroits have had an even tougher time: They are the worst in the league in points per game, averaging just 94. It’s possible that one of those Achilles heels will end up tripping the losing team.
