Toronto is a 5.5-point favorite in the latest Raptors vs. Magic odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 207. Before making any Raptors vs. Magic picks of your own, you should listen to the NBA Playoffs 2019.
Toronto won 50-plus games for the fourth year in a row. Prior to that, the Raptors had never won 50 games in a season. Toronto is making its sixth consecutive playoff appearance and 11th overall, advancing to the conference semifinals the last two years after making it to the conference finals in 2016. The Raptors have had success against the Magic, going 46-39 all-time during the regular season.
Forward Kawhi Leonard has been a force. He scored 37 points in Game 2 and still managed 16 in Game 3 despite dealing with an illness. Prior to that, he had scored 20-plus points in the previous six games. Forward Pascal Siakam is averaging 24.3 points in the series, including 30 points in Game 3.
That’s because the Magic lead the all-time playoff series 5-3, including a 4-1 first-round series win in 2008. Orlando, which has reached the postseason 15 times in its history, has had plenty of success in the playoffs, advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals four times and reaching the NBA Finals twice (1995 and 2009).
Center Nikola Vucevic leads the way for the Magic. He had 22 points in Game 3 and has scored 20 or more in four of the past six games. Terrence Ross scored 24 points off the bench in Game 3 and hit 20 in five of the last seven games. But just because Toronto leads the series doesn’t guarantee it will cover the Raptors vs. Magic spread on Sunday.
