Washington is coming off a back to back on Saturday and they will be without John Wall, who is resting after double knee surgeries in the offseason. The Magic have sprung up to -5 ½ in the NBA Odds, but they are still a great value with Wall out tonight.

Washington Wizards vs Orlando Magic

 

The Magic aren’t off to a great start this season, but they get a good chance at a win on Saturday as the Wizards come to town. Washington is coming off a win last night, but tonight they will be without their starting point guard, John Wall and I am ready to lay the points with Orlando before the NBA Odds shoot up even more.

Without Wall on the court this season, the Wizards’ offensive rating drops 32.1 points. Wall is the Wizards. I am no fan of Brad Beal and I think the Wizards way overpaid for him and while Marcin Gortat is great he can not sustain these minutes all season at age 32, going on 33.

Simply put, Washington cannot beat this Magic team on short rest and without Wall. Lay the points with Orlando.
