Orlando Magic Betting
When betting on sports teams, it’s important to weigh what type of bet you can make to minimize your losses and/or maximize profits. Two popular bet types are the money line and point spread. Money line bets are straight up bets. You pick the team you think will win while point spreads allot a certain amount of points for the team to win by.
On a money line bet, a -300 signifies a favourite and you have to lay $300 to win $100. On the point spread, a -3.5 signifies a favourite who has to win by at least 4 points. On the flipside, a +300 identifies an underdog and you can win $300 on a $100 wager while a +3.5 means the underdog is allowed to lose by up to as many as 3 points.
Favourites are more likely winners and you have to risk more to win while underdogs are more likely losers so the payoff is greater. The point spread evens this out a bit so picking a favourite can just be as risky as picking an underdog.
The Magic go through periods of rebuilding after fielding championship-caliber teams. When the Magic are in this phase, they may make good underdog bets as they are bound to surprise a couple of teams especially if they’re nearing that period where their draft picks and prospects are beginning to round out to form. Pay attention to these and pick the Magic as a low risk high reward betting option.
