The Magic vs Celtics matchup scheduled for this Friday, December 16, will be the second between these Eastern Conference teams this regular season.
Their first meeting ended with a score of 126-120 in favor of the Boston Celtics, who have been solid ever since. They arrive in different conditions: on the one hand, we have Boston confirming itself as the best team so far, not only in the conference, but in the whole campaign, and on the other hand we have Orlando continuing to lurk among the worst teams.
The style of play and the players are very different in the two teams, but the Orlando Magic‘s look has changed in recent times, and that could give us a surprise. So, without further ado, here is JefeBet‘s preview of OrlandoMagic vs Boston Celtics, with team details, betting information, and the prediction.
Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Orlando Magic vs Boston Celtics NBA Regular Season Game on December 16, 2022
- Where: TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts.
- When: Friday, December 16, 2022, 7:30 PM E.T.
Betting on the Orlando Magic
The Orlando Magic are trying to turn their situation around this season, and a series of positive results may be enough of a boost to do so. However, they do not look like one of the most dangerous rivals, especially in the Eastern Conference, where the two most complete teams of the campaign are the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Cortar una racha de nueve derrotas consecutivas es algo favorable para los de Orlando, pero los desafíos que ha enfrentado en el último tiempo no se comparan a lo que propone Boston, con quien ya perdió esta temporada. Ganó ante Atlanta Hawks en su partido previo y está en su mejor racha positiva en la temporada.
Betting on the Boston Celtics
Not just anyone finishes as NBA runner-up and returns the following season at a similar or higher level than what they already presented, but the Boston Celtics are doing just that. They reached the Finals for the first time in 12 years, and are looking to repeat the feat in search of a ring this 2022-23 season.
The team has had some problems with injuries, but has gotten stronger and, after the first two months of activity this season, the Celtics are the best team: they have already achieved the most wins, with a record of 22-7 in 29 games, achieving a 75.9% winning percentage.
They are coming off a 118-122 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in a game that went into overtime, and will be looking to add another win here.
On paper, this game is quite uneven because the best team in the NBA is facing one of the worst. There could be surprises because that’s the way sports are about, but the Boston franchise is ready to face this game and continue to consolidate its position in the Eastern Conference and in the Atlantic Division.
