Magic vs Lakers Predictions
28 March 2021
The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers will matchup in an interconference battle that will be intriguing to watch. Both of these teams are a bit out of it right now and it’s fair to say the Magic have entered complete tank mode, getting rid of Nikola Vucevic for picks. The Lakers are still championship contenders, but they are beyond banged up currently.
We are here to bring you Lakers vs Magic predictions for the spread, total, and moneyline. This is sure to be a interesting game and I truly believe any team can win it. Let’s dive into how this game will go down and who will end up covering the spread.
Orlando Magic vs Los Angeles Lakers Betting Pick
This game will take place at 10:00 PM ET in the Staples Center
Why bet the Los Angeles Lakers:
✅ The Orlando Magic are barely even a shell of themselves. The Magic have entered full tank mode and winning is not a priority for the rest of this season. While the Lakers are banged up, every win is still crucial and they will be fighting here, albeit without their two stars. The Lakers have shown in their last few games that they can score without AD and LBJ, which we haven’t seen out of the Magic and probably won’t for quite a while.
✅ The Lakers have enough firepower to outlast the Magic and I am not sure who I trust on this Orlando team to put up more than 15 points on a consistent basis. The Lakers are still playing strong defense without the stars and I look for them to slow the Magic down big-time in LA. This Magic team is still learning who they are without their best player and this game could get ugly.
✅ If you’re looking for a lean on the total, I am a big fan of the under. The Lakers defense is just as good without LeBron James and Anthony Davis and I don’t think the Magic will be any good offensively these first few games. Let’s back the Lakers and the under here as their defenses leads them to a comfortable victory.
✅ The Orlando Magic are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
✅ The Los Angeles Lakers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite.
The Pick: Lakers -6.5

Orlando Magic vs Lakers Over/Under Betting
When you aren’t too sure whether the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers will cover the spread, you can elect to wager the over/under. Betting the over/under involves picking whether the Lakers and Magic will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. This is the second-most popular way to wager on NBA games as the other way to get even odds on both sides of the wager.
Using a similar example as above, let’s say the Magic vs Lakers over/under is set to 223.5 points. A wager on the over would call for 224 or more total points while a bet on the under would require 223 or fewer total points. Remember, this is just a hypothetical and the real odds and predictions can be found above.

Magic vs Lakers Moneyline Predictions
If you’re someone who likes to bet sports in the states, you are likely very aware of the moneyline wager and what it entails. Betting the moneyline comes down to simply picking whether the Magic or Lakers will win the game outright, allowing you to ignore both the spread and over/under. With that being said, there is still plenty to consider when betting the moneyline.
One of the biggest factors to consider is whether the price is fair or not. With the moneyline a popular wager among hobbyists, there is often a steep price assigned on the favorite or underdog. It’s your job to make sure the price is fair, which can be done by shopping around for odds.
