Magic vs Celtics Prediction
15 January 2021
The Magic vs Celtics is an eastern conference matchup with plenty of history behind it. There is an added injection of talent into the conference and every game is of paramount importance. Especially for two teams that don’t have a clear-cut top-5 roster.
The Celtics are the more established team, but the Magic are young and packed with promise. It’s worth watching whenever these two teams face off.
We’re here to bring you the best Magic vs Celtics NBA against the spread predictions as well as a lean on the over/under and moneyline.
Let’s dive into how this game will go down and who will end up covering the spread in the process.
Magic vs Celtics Against the Spread Pick
This game will take place at 7:30 PM ET in TD Garden
The Pick: Magic +3.5
Why bet the Magic:
✅ The Celtics are beyond banged up for this point in the season. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have a lot on their shoulders and they’re facing off with a Magic team that has kept it close recently.
✅ Nikola Vucevic has had success against the Celtics, averaging 26 points and 11.5 rebounds per game against them in the last two seasons. The Celtics haven’t picked up anyone in the interior that will make a difference.
✅ The Magic are stout defensively, ranking top-10 in opposing teams field goal % and turnover %. Boston must play a perfect game to cover the spread and I don’t expect it to happen.
✅The Magic are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.

Magic vs Celtics Against the Spread Predictions
When betting against the spread, it’s your job to determine whether a team will win or lose by a certain amount of points.
For example, let’s say the Boston Celtics are 3.5-point favorites. That would read Orlando Magic vs. Boston Celtics (-3.5).
For a successful bet on the Celtics, they must win by four points or more. For a successful Magic wager, they can either win by any margin or lose by three or fewer points. The Celtics are the favorite in this example.
The Magic vs Celtics against the spread predictions require consideration of numerous factors, including injuries, recent performances, and the set odds.
We are here to consider every factor when making our Magic vs Celtics against the spread predictions and are here to deliver for you.
Magic vs Celtics Over/Under Betting
Making a Magic vs Celtics over/under prediction refers to betting whether the two teams will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points.
The Magic and Celtics both play at an average pace, ranking 18th and 20th, respectively. It’s fair to expect a slower game as both teams will play in their comfort zones.
Sportsbooks know this and the over/under won’t be a very high number. These teams have averaged just 203.6 total points per game when facing off since 2010.
Consider a bet on the under here, though you should be watching the market as a drastic swing could land us on the over. It all comes down to the number.

Magic vs Celtics Moneyline Predictions
Betting the moneyline in the NBA refers to simply betting the winner of the game. Opposed to picking whether the game will reach a certain number or if a team will win by a certain amount, all you have to do with the moneyline is pick the winner.
With the Celtics winning the majority of games between these two teams, it might be worth considering a moneyline bet. However, you have to ensure there is value as you will rarely benefit from betting a moneyline favorite.
Make sure to pay attention as the moneyline odds will continue to adjust, right along with every other line for this game right up until tip-off.
