The Philadelphia 76ers and the Orlando Magic collide once again at the Amway Center on Sunday night.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in great shape as they’ve won five of their last seven games overall and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Magic in a 107-99 road win on Friday. Shake Milton led the team with 24 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists, Tobias Harris added 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists while Georges Niang chipped in with 18 points on six of eight shooting off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 47 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and trailed until the third quarter where they were able to use a pivotal 21-7 run to take control and escape with the important victory.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in poor form as they’ve lost five of their last six games and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after falling short to the 76ers on Friday. Franz Wagner led the team with 24 points on seven of 12 shooting, Paolo Banchero added 19 points while Bol Bol chipped in with 18 points, eight rebounds and four blocks. As a team, the Magic shot just 42 percent from the field and nine of 35 from the 3-point line as they got off to a decent start and held the lead for most of the game until the third quarter where they managed just 20 points to see their lead disappear for good.

Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 7-16-1 ATS in their last 24 road games, 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games against a team below .400 and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Magic are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in the last five when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. 

Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall and the 76ers are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings overall. 

The 76ers are going to be shorthanded again as Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle and Tyrese Maxey are all out, while the Magic have listed Chuma Okeke, Jalen Suggs, Wendell Carter Jr and Markelle Fultz as questionable for this one. It’s always tough to beat the same team twice in a row in their own building, but the Magic just don’t have the firepower to hang with the 76ers unless Banchero or Wagner can have a monster game. The 76ers still have more than enough firepower to get the job done and they are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings overall, so I’ll stick with the 76ers once again.
