With the Celtics leading the series 3-0 and the fourth game is on their home court, the Magic have to really turn this series around tonight with a much needed win or they go back to Orlando and wait for the next NBA Season. This game tonight should bring forth some very interesting NBA betting by the fans and the NBA odds will be something to watch.
Unfortunately for the Magic, they need to win to change the history of playoff as no team in NBA history has won a seven game series when they were down by a 3-0 margin. If they are to win this fourth game they must accept the responsibility of a lagging defense that has not been blocking and rotating as needed, and a offensive situation that if they don’t change direction and their three top players in Carter, Howard and Lewis don’t show up with supremacy the Magic might as well go home. And that would be a very disappointing situation to the avid NBA betting fans and NBA odds makers.
After game THREE it’s not surprising the Celtics are expected to win game FOUR. When it comes to the backboards the Celtics are out re-bounding the Magic by 41-38 and that data will definitely be a factor on NBA betting and the NBA odds makers along with the shooting and 3 point leaders. In the shooting stats the Celtics are expected to shoot 49 to the Magic 42 % from the court. For the 3 pointers thus far the Magic are completing 9 while the Celtics are only making 5.3 of the 3 pointers from the court. One area where the Magic can excel.
