This is a good matchup for the Nets here today as they take on the Magic. Brooklyn is a solid home team that is 16-7 on their home floor and winning by 4.1 ppg. Orlando on the other hand is just 6-13 on the road and losing by 4.5 ppg.
The Nets are weak at defending the 3-point shot, allowing opponents to shoot 37.3% on the year from behind the arc, but Orlando is making just 32.3% of their 3-point attempts away from home so I don’t think they can exploit the Nets defensive weakness.
Orlando is a great free throw shooting team but they don’t draw a lot of fouls. I think they will have even more troubles getting to the line today against a Nets team that only allows 19 free throw attempts against teams that normally shoot 22.
Both of these teams are struggling. Orlando has lost five in a row while the Nets are coming off two straight double digit blowout losses. I trust the better team to get back on track here tonight.
Orlando is 8-18 ATS the last two years when playing with double revenge and you want to fade teams off a double digit home loss versus their opponent when they are also off a close home loss by three points or less. This system is 74-37 (66.7%) since 1997.
