Raptors-Magic Series Has Been a Dream for UNDER Bettors

Kyle Lowry #7 of the Toronto Raptors shoots the ball during Game Two of the first round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs against the Orlando Magic at Scotiabank Arena on April 16, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

The Toronto Raptors managed to win Game 3 of their first-round series vs the Orlando Magic without a fully healthy Kawhi Leonard, but the Raptors will hope the all-star is back at full strength when they aim to grab a 3-1 stranglehold on the series in Florida. Sportsbooks opened the Dinos as 5.5-point road favorites with a total of 207.

Raptors vs Magic Game Center

Standout Stats

  • Leonard collected 37 points in Game 2 but managed only 16 on 5-of-19 shooting in Toronto’s 98-83 Game 3 triumph. The former San Antonio Spur also notched 10 rebounds in 37 minutes of playing time.
  • Orlando won 13 of its final 14 regular-season home games but couldn’t keep that success going in Game 3, as it shot just 36.3 percent from the field and committed 16 turnovers. Swingman Terrence Ross scored a team-high 24 points off the bench while Nikola Vucevic tallied 22 on 7-of-13 shooting.
  • The biggest difference-maker of Game 3 was undoubtedly Pascal Siakam. The 25-year-old recorded 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting while also pouring in 11 rebounds in 42 minutes to easily pick up the void left by the struggling Leonard.
  • Is another UNDER in store tonight? After each of the series’ opening three games went below the total, the Raptors have gone UNDER in four straight dating back to the regular season. The UNDER is also 3-0-1 in Toronto’s past four road contests.
  • Home teams have a habit of covering the spread in this series. In the previous nine matchups between the Raps and Magic, home sides are 6-2-1 ATS.

My best bet for Raptors-Magic

UNDER 207 points

Neither side has been able to consistently put up points in this series so far, and that’s translated to a dream opening three matchups for UNDER bettors. In fact, the UNDER is 7-0 in the past seven clashes between these teams in Orlando. Even if Leonard is back to normal health-wise, I expect this one to remain relatively low scoring and for another UNDER to cash in Game 4.
