Raptors VS Magic Picks
Squaring off for the second time this season, the Raptors look to improve to 2-0 against the Magic, who will be looking to even the season series. The Raptors were dominant in their first meeting, winning 121-108 and are hoping to replicate this performance against the Magic, but this time on the road.
In their last matchup the Raptors squashed the shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers, beating them from pillar-to-post for the entire duration of the game. With improved performances from Fred VanVleet and Scottie Barnes, brighter tomorrows may just be on the Raptors horizon and it could all begin with a win against he Magic.
As rare a sight as any in the NBA this season, the Magic are also coming off of a win in their last matchup, defending homecourt against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Magics upset overtime win was largely in thanks to the heroic play of Rookie of the Year favourite, Paolo Banchero. Looking to build off of this massive win, the Magic will set their sights on a tough Raptors squad.
Moneyline/Point Spread Pick: Toronto Raptors (ML/-8)
Don’t expect to see a different outcome from their last meeting in todays matchup as the Raptors throttle the Magic from the opening tip, to the final buzzer.
The Raptors have seemingly gotten over the hump and have come out the other side of their recent rough patch feeling rejuvenated and confident in their abilities. Looking strong against the Boston Celtics in a losing effort as well as decimating the Lakers, since the return of Pascal Siakam this Raptors team has looked completely different.
With an uptick in offensive production as well as providing more depth to the overall lineup, Siakam is the driving force for the Raptors success. While they are always a threat to shutdown their opponents, the Raptors have been streaky on the offensive end. With Siakam at the helm, the Magic will have no chance in going bucket-for-bucket with one of the top players in the NBA.
The Magic are also heavily reliant on their top talents to carry the workload offensively, providing frontcourt mates, Banchero and Franz Wagner with ample scoring opportunities over the course of the game. However, the Raptors excel at isolating top players on the opposing end, diminishing their output and forcing the supporting cast to beat them instead.
Watch for the Raptors to lockdown Banchero and Wagner once again, as they did in superbly in their first clash of the season, keeping them out of striking distance and walking away with the lopsided road victory.
Back the Raptors to get the win over the Magic, covering the eight-point spread in the process.
Over/Under Pick: Under 221.5 Points
With the Raptors poised to wreak havoc on the lives of the Magic starters, look for this game to be not only one-sided, but also low-scoring.
Both teams currently sit in the bottom-half of the league in total points per game, demonstrating their inability to find consistent production on the offensive end. While the Raptors have picked up the pace offensively as of late, look for them to provide valuable minutes to their young bench players as they begin to runaway on the scoreboard.
In their last matchup, the Magic starting five only managed to score a combined 48-points, 18 of which came courtesy of breakout talent, Bol Bol. With the Raptors set to make the Magic starters live in misery during this contest, look for the score to stay stagnant on the side of the Magic.
In what will be a slow paced affair, bet the Under on the Raptors VS Magic point total and watch the score stay low, while you earn the dough with our NBA best bets.

Get in the game with out top player prop bets for the Raptors VS Magic below.
OG Anunoby Over 19.5 Points
Continuing to grow as a player, OG Anunoby has been one of the top talents on the Raptors this season. Playing exceptionally well defensively, Anunoby has eleveated his game on the offensive end, able to score both off-ball as well as create his own scoring chances.
The last time these two teams went toe-to-toe, Anunoby exploded in output, demolishing the Magic to the tune of 32 points in 33 minutes. Look for Anunoby to build upon what has already been a stellar season, continuing to establish himself as one of the premier two-way players in the NBA by scoring Over 19.5 points against the Magic.
Bol Bol Under 7.5 Rebounds
Emerging as a special talent, Bol Bol has begun to live up to the potential that many fans from around the league expected from him before joining the NBA. After being selected in the second-round of the NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, Bol spent the majority of his career glued to the bench, receiving few minutes to showcase his talent on a strong Nuggets squad.
Now on the Magic, Bol as started to blossom as a player posting career-highs in virtually every major statistical category. But even with his surge in production, look for the big man to struggle along the glass against the Raps.
The Raptors have surprisingly done well at keeping opposing bigs from crashing the glass, using their superios speed and verticality to clean up misses at any chance. Look for Bol to corral Under 7.5 rebounds against the Raptors, and watch your bankroll rise while his rebound average drops.
