The Celtics play much better on their home court although they have a winning road record (11-9) while the Magic are much better at home (13-9).. Read more at capperspicks.com

Pick : Boston Celtics
Orlando plays solid basketball at home but the fact remains that they have to rely heavily on their defense. The Magic’s offensive woes are a major reason that the team is three games below .500 despite leading the league in scoring defense. Boston has regrouped after a slide as they pasted the Lakers and Grizzlies by a combined 56 points. Those games did come at home but the Celtics are above .500 on the road (11-9) on the year. While Tatum may well miss the contest, Boston has plenty of weapons to take advantage of the Magic and earn their third straight win here.. Read more at winnersandwhinners.com

Boston F Jaylen Brown (ankle) and F Jayson Tatum (groin) are both being listed as questionable for this contest. Both teams defend at a very high level, so the under is my lean on the total. Look for Orlando to bounce back with a home victory on Friday. Final Score Prediction, Orlando Magic win in upset 107-100.. Read more at picksandparlays.com

Pick : Orlando
I will be going with the Magic in this matchup. The Magic allows the fewest points in the NBA this season and Boston isn’t exactly an explosive offense and while they do average 108 points per game on the road, the Magic allows just 100 points per game. Boston is a decent road team but Orlando is a better home team with a better defense and should narrowly defeat Boston. I will take the Magic to defeat the Celtics in this contest..

Pick : Orlando Magic -1
The Magic have won and covered in three straight against Boston, but the two haven’t met this season. The Celtics have been very interesting in recent weeks, picking up some impressive wins while suffering some surprising losses. The Magic are a good defensive team, so they could give Boston some problems, but if the Celtics find ways to score, Orlando doesn’t have the firepower to respond. I think Orlando will be able to contain Boston, especially with the Celtics battling some injuries. I look for this game to be a grind, which should favor Orlando at home.. Read more at thespread.com

Pick : Boston Celtics -1.5
Boston Celtics vs Orlando Magic. The NBA pick for this game is the Boston Celtics -1.5. Boston Center Enes Kanter is out of this game with a foot injury. Magic PG DJ Agustin (knee), PF Al-Farouq Aminu (knee), and PF Jonathan Isaac (knee) will not be in this game. Boston is 5-5 in its last 10 road matches while Orlando is also 5-5 at home in their last 10 matches. Boston is a little shaken with its players giving up on injuries but the bench is deep enough to hold off the Magic. The Celtics win this round with a predicted score of 108-105..
