Philadelphia vs Orlando: prediction for the NBA match
On January 31, Orlando will travel to Philadelphia for a difficult NBA game. Will the Magic put up a fight to the Sixers? The answer is in our prediciton.
Philadelphia launched another winning streak. This time, Doc Rivers' men won seven games in a row. Sixers secured a home victory over Denver in the most recent match. 47 points and 18 rebounds from Joel Embiid led the 76ers to a 126:119 victory over the Nuggets.
But Embiid might miss the upcoming game. Cameroonian player is still struggling with his left foot, so Doc Rivers will probably leave him on the bench.
Orlando recently secured home victories over Indiana and Boston, but after that, team started to lose again. Jamahl Mosley's men failed to beat Miami (105:110) and Chicago (109:128). Magic lost these games, but they were not looking hopeless.
Florida team still has a chance to reach the playoffs. Orlando currently have 19 victories. Magic are just four wins away from the 10th position.
Ставка Philadelphia: total under 120,5 points
Sixers failed to score more than 120 points in 3 of 4 latest matches
Ставка Banchero: total over 19,5 points
Paolo averages 20,2 points per game on away matches
Orlando have a chance to put up a fight to Philadelphia, who will probably play without Embiid. Magic managed to put up a fight to Denver and Miami in recent matches. Magic are unlikely to lose by a wide margin.

Head-to-head fixtures between Orlando and Philadelphia are usually low-scoring. In 4 of 5 latest matches opponents failed to beat the total of 235,5 points. We are expecting the same result today.
