Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Orlando Magic vs Indiana Pacers NBA Regular Season Game on November 21, 2022
- Where: BankersLife Field House, Indianapolis, Indiana.
- When: Monday, November 21, 2022, 7:00 PM E.T.
Betting on the Orlando Magic
Orlando is very irregular, just as it can win two games, the following week it loses two. They are not consistent and that has led them to be at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. They have been much better than in October, when they won only one game. In November they have won 4 and lost 5, which is a great improvement.
The problem is that the team does is not getting good results playing as visitors. Before these two games against Indiana, they had won only one and lost six. The team coached by Jamahl Mosley sometimes looks good, but sometimes it doesn’t work. What’s worse is that their inconsistency shows in games like against the Bulls. Although they dominated the game, they almost lose by a last-second Jalen Suggs field goal.
The loss of Paolo Banchero is very sensitive for a team that knows it has room for improvement, but without its best player it is complicated. They have found life through Franz Wagner and Jalen Suggs, but the Italian-American’s contribution to the offense is so great that they have not learned to perform well without him.

November has been a spectacular month for the Pacers. They have only lost one game, obviously before this doubleheader against the Magic. They are playing better and better and are climbing positions in the East, although they are still far behind the Celtics, but that’s something.
Playing at home they are strong, especially against weaker teams, but they are still finding their best performance, and it seems that Rick Carlisle is already finding his ideal team. With Tyrese Haliburton in good form, the Pacers are starting to create expectation.
It is one of the highest scoring teams in the league. Averaging 116.6 points per game, this speaks to the power of an offense that shares a lot of the responsibility. The coach tries to make sure that there is not just one person to depend on, everyone has to contribute, and that is the reason for the improvement during November.
It looks tough for the Pacers to lose two in a row at home. The Magic are too inconsistent to beat a team that scores a lot. In addition, Orlando allows too many points per game and against such a dynamic offense they are likely to collapse easily.
The problem is that they have already played a few hours earlier so they will have to resort to rotations to take care of the team. However, Indiana is very balanced and the secondary team is also quite good. The Magic has to give everything in the court to win, but it won’t be easy.
