Magic vs Wizards oddsOrlando is moving up the online betting ranks lately as they’re hot on Cleveland’s heels for the first seed in the Eastern Conference with a seven-game winning streak. On Saturday, the Magic will head to the nation’s capital to face the Washington Wizards, who will be playing their third game in as many days.

Magic vs Wizards odds – Saturday, March 13, 7:00 PM ET

The Magic (46-20) slaughtered Chicago 111-82 at home on Thursday, jumping out to a 22-point lead by halftime. Vince Carter netted 23 points for the Magic, who shot 55.1% from the field while holding the Bulls to 39.8%. The Magic outrebounded the Bulls 46-29, led by 11 off the bench from Marcin Gortat, but they have to be worried about the 21 turnovers they committed. The Magic held a big edge at the free-throw line, going 26-of-33 as opposed to 12-of-19 for the Bulls.

The Wizards (21-41) will head to Detroit on Friday first, but they fell at home to Atlanta on Thursday by a score of 105-99 despite 30 points and 10 rebounds from Andray Blatche, who has flourished since the Wizards traded Antawn Jamison to Cleveland.

JaVale McGee added 20 points and nine rebounds for the Wizards, who held a 42-29 edge on the boards, but they also had 20 turnovers and shot a miserable 1-of-13 from the three-point line. The Wizards have been playing well since Gilbert Arenas was suspended and the Jamison trade, and they’ve been leaning on Blatche, who has averaged 20.4 points and 8.4 rebounds in his last five games, but they still need a few more pieces to build on.

Gambling software should favor the Magic in Washington, where they’ve won five of their last six. Their lone loss here came on January 8th, when the Wizards beat the Magic 104-97 in an emotionally charged game. Jamison addressed the crowd about the off-court problems prior to the game, and then went on to notch 28 point and 11 rebounds. In fact, Jamison, Brandon Haywood and Caron Butler combined for 69 points and 33 rebounds, but none of them are in Washington anymore. Dwight Howard had 23 points and 12 rebounds, and the Orlando reserves outscored their Washington counterparts 45-9, but the Wizards’ starters made sure that they weren’t losing that game, and they don’t have that kind of leadership. One more edge for the Magic is rest: they played Thursday in Orlando and then had an off-day. Meanwhile, the Wizards hosted Atlanta, then travelled to Detroit before heading back to meet Orlando. The Magic will be rested and should be your pick for Saturday night. As for the Wizards, Washington natives should just focus on Georgetown’s March Madness odds.
