Orlando Magic vs Denver Nuggets Preview

After pulling out a comeback win to outlast Chicago in overtime this past weekend, Denver suffered a 113-108 defeat by the New Orleans Pelicans - who had a combined 60 points from Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.

Nikola Jokic had another triple-double (29 pts, 10 rebs, 10 ast) while Jamal Murray produced 23 points with seven assists, though Will Barton's shooting struggles (7-of-19, 2/9 from 3PT range) saw them narrowly lose. 

They'll expect a different result away to Eastern Conference strugglers Orlando, surrounded by trade speculation with PF Aaron Gordon requesting to leave earlier this week. As such, it's unlikely he'll play here and probably be replaced by James Ennis III or Chuma Okeke - another unexpected blow to their chances of victory. 

Boston appears frontrunners for the 25-year-old's signature given what they are willing to offer, though a move to upcoming opponents Denver isn't out of the question either. 

Orlando Magic vs Denver Nuggets Betting Tips 

ESPN's BPI is comfortably backing the Nuggets to prevail in this matchup (68.4%), and unfortunately for their midweek hosts, I'm sharing the same enthusiasm here.

Orlando has lost ten of their last eleven games. Ultimately, it's hard to see All-Star centre Nikola Vucevic powering them to a big home win - especially with valuable SG Terrence Ross (knee) listed as doubtful here. 

The 29-year-old is averaging a career-high 16 points per game through 36 matches (29.6 MPG). They need all the scoring help they can provide around their Montenegrin big man, which is why I am predicting a Denver win.
