Thunder vs. Magic NBA Prediction:
Put simply, the Thunder are one of the best teams against the number in the NBA in 2024. OKC is 14-11-1 ATS on the road and 22-15 ATS as a favorite this season. Quick turnarounds don’t seem to bother the young Thunder as they are 20-11 ATS when playing on 1 day of rest this year. That’s the fourth-best mark in the league.
And finally, Oklahoma City is exceptional against the East this season. The Thunder are 12-6 ATS against non-conference opponents in 2024. That’s the third-best record in the NBA. Oklahoma City is second in the NBA in net rating this season, while Orlando is 15th in that same metric. I think we see that talent and skill gap on full display in central Florida on Tuesday night. I’m laying the points with the Thunder.
