Orlando Magic vs. Toronto Raptors Player Prop Picks

Which players will dominate this Magic vs. Raptors game?

Gary Harris Over 1.5 3PM (-102 FD)

Jakob Poeltl’s injury forced Kelly Olynyk into the starting lineup, and the defensive results have been brutal. Over the past five games, Toronto has surrendered the 3rd most corner three-point attempts and 4th most wide open three-point attempts per game (via NBA.com). Olynyk’s inability to anchor the paint without aid is a massive reason behind why the Raptors are being hammered by catch-and-shoot threes. 

Veteran sharpshooter Gary Harris enters this contest on a heater. He has knocked down 21 of his last 36 attempts from deep, or 58.3 percent. During that ten game stretch, Harris recorded at least two made threes eight times, or 80 percent. Based on his odds, he only needs to accomplish this feat about 51 percent of the time here for the bet to be profitable in the long run. Overall, look for Harris to benefit from Toronto’s disorganized and porous defense, which gives up the 9th most made threes per game to shooting guards. 

SGP (-118 FD): Wendell Carter Jr 8+ Rebounds & Magic Moneyline

Meanwhile, the Raptors rank 29th in opponent offensive rebound rate across the past five games with Poeltl and Scottie Barnes out. Olynyk can be bullied on the glass, and they will not have much help tonight from their forwards with Barnes and Barrett sidelined. Plus, Toronto ranks 26th in field goal percentage recently, so there should be plenty of defensive rebounds for Orlando too. 

Wendell Carter Jr is by no means a monster rebounder, but he has hit this line in seven of his past nine games (77 percent). Essentially, WCJ sits in an excellent position to control the boards against a Toronto squad that allows the 4th most rebounds per game to opposing centers. 

As for Orlando’s moneyline, slashers Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner likely dominate this horrendous Raptors interior defense. Given their outside shooters, the Magic possess numerous players that can punish late rotations and pull defenders away from the paint. Orlando’s bench is far deeper than Toronto’s too, so the Magic will boast the on-court talent advantage for all 48 minutes. Finally, they travel well, as evidenced by their 21-14 record against the spread on the road. 

Based on the same game parlay’s odds, it needs to hit at least 54 percent of the time.
