Magic vs. Clippers Best Bets
Clippers -6.5 (-110 DraftKings)
The return of two of the best players in the league in Leonard and George should continue to boost the Clippers’ chances, especially against a team like the Magic who are struggling mightily with a nine-game losing streak. Not only are they in horrible form, but Orlando has lost their last five games by an average of 11 points while allowing 52% FG shooting. In games with Leonard and George, the Clippers boast one of the best offensive and defensive efficiency ratings in the league. Also, in the last five meetings between these teams when the Clippers have been the road team, they are 5-0 ATS.
