One thing that has gone unnoticed about the Magic over the last few weeks is their quickened pace. They have been cashing the over with great regularity recently and now they get a game against one of the league’s worst teams. Cash in on the over for your NBA Picks tonight.

Brooklyn Nets vs Orlando Magic

The big question for this game is whether Jeremy Lin will play, which could impact the Nets a lot. He did some work at practice on Thursday, so it looks like he is trending in the right direction. However, with the quickened pace the Magic are playing at recently, it may be a great over play regardless with the NBA odds of 217 ½.

The NBA odds for this one are already on the move upward and it probably has more to do with Orlando. The Nets are playing at one of the league’s fastest paces, but the Magic have been speeding things up lately as well. In their last two games, they have played at an average pace of 97.5 possessions per game and they have also cashed the over in five of their last six games.

The Nets have been crushing the over as well. It has cashed in eight of their last 10 games and in 10 of their 11 road games this season. With Brooklyn, it not only has to do with their pace but their lack of defense too. Brooklyn is allowing nearly 119 points per game on the road this season while giving up 114.5 overall per game.

With the way, the Magic have been playing lately, and the fact they have allowed 116 points per game over their last five, add the over to your plays tonight.
