Orlando Magic vs Boston Celtics 2/1/2013 game is the second time Magic and Celtics is meeting in a 3 game series this season. In the first game Boston beat Orlando 116-110. The way both these teams have been playing I can’t say one team will blowout the other.

Orlando Magic Stats And Key Players

Orlando Magic (14 – 31)

Orlando Magic has lost 8 of the last 10 games, including a 7 game losing steak, and a 31 game losing record so far this season. The Orlando Magic losing record is a mix of bad play and facing really good teams back to back. These haven’t been close game loses, these are blowout and blowout games. The Magic is a really great first half team. However, when it comes down to the second half. The Magic players become just average players. Nobody really gives that hard push come 4th quarter. This is why I can’t name a single key player on the Orlando Magic that will really impact this game.

Boston Celtics Stats And Key Players

Boston Celtics (22 – 23)

Boston Celtics have won 4 of the last 10 games, including a 2 game winning steak, and 1 game under 500. This game is a must win game to get back to even. The Celtics have a 7-6 record at home against Eastern teams.

The Boston Celtics key players for this game will be Avery Bradley who stepped up since Rajon Rondo has been out with an injury. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will need to set the tempo for the game and lead the team into this so come 4th quarter they will have a solid lead.

Where To Bet On Magic vs Celtics Online

Orlando Magic vs Boston Celtics Odds

  • Orlando Magic: +8 point spread and +340 money line
  • Boston Celtics: -8 point spread and -440 money line

My Prediction

My prediction is the Boston Celtics will win this game by 4 points. So I wouldn’t bet on the point spread in this game because the last game the Celtics only won by 6 points and the best point spread is 8 points. I would take the Celtics on the money line.

My Pick: Boston Celtics -440 money line at Carbon Sports

Final Score

  • Orlando Magic: 84
  • Boston Celtics: 97
