The Philadelphia 76ers hit the road and travel to the Amway Center where take on the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
The Sixers saw their six game winning streak come to a halt at the expense of the eliminated Atlanta Hawks after rookie guard Trae Young hit a floater 0.1 of a second left to give the Hawks a 129-127 win. The loss dropped Philly to four games behind #2 Toronto and seven games behind the top seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the East.

Orlando came from 17 point down in the third quarter to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies 123-119 in overtime for their fourth straight victory. With the win, Orlando keeps itself alive in the race for the playoffs. The Magic trail the Miami Heat by by just one game in the Eastern Conference team standings.
Philadelphia is 7-3 SU in their last 10 games played and Philadelphia is 2-2 SU in four road games during that stretch. Orlando is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games played. The Magic are 5-0 SU in their last five games played at home. Head to head, the Sixers are 6-4 SU in their last 10 games against the Magic.
Both these teams need to get the the win for their respective playoff drives. But while the Sixers are chasing Milwaukee and Toronto for the Top 2 seeds in the East, the Magic are fighting for their playoff lives right here. That said, the Magic need this game just as badly as the Sixers do and that should be a factor in this game. Philly is just 18-17 SU on the road while the Magic are 22-16 SU at home this season. I like The Sixers to bounce back strong here after the loss to Atlanta. I’m picking the Philadelphia 76ers to beat the Orlando Magic on 3/25/19.
