Minnesota Timberwolves vs Orlando Magic (4:00pm)

Updated: Mar 7

Both teams exhibit exceptional defensive ratings but find themselves situated in the lower echelons when it comes to offensive efficiency. The Magic, contending with the absence of their second-leading scorer and four other pivotal players, are expected to encounter limited scoring opportunities. Positioned at the 13th rank in tempo, the challenge for the Magic becomes even more daunting.

In contrast, the Timberwolves, holding the 21st rank in tempo, are well-positioned to dictate the game's pace. I anticipate a strategic approach from them, deliberately constraining the Magic's offensive possessions in the half-court. Their game plan involves methodically utilizing the shot clock, orchestrating ball movement and finding the open shooter.

Despite the prevalent trend in the betting market leaning towards the Over, with SportsInsights reporting over 91% of the money wagered on it! I believe there is a reason why this game has the lowest total on the NBA betting board. My numbers have this game closer to the 212-215 point range. Notably, the Under has prevailed in 8 out of the Magic's last 11 games against teams with a winning percentage above .600. Tonight's matchup is anticipated to be closely contested and highly competitive.

Pick: Under 217 (-110)

🍀Best of luck!
