The Orlando Magic have gone through a rebuilding phase since big man Dwight Howard left town in 2012, and if current trajectories are any indication, the future is bright for the Magic. Orlando has been able to increase their season win total each year since Howard left and although their 35-47 SU record in the 15-16 season wasn’t quite good enough to earn a postseason berth, it feels like it’s only a matter of time.
That’s why scoping out early Orlando Magic lines in the coming seasons should be a very lucrative betting option for NBA bettors. This is clearly a team on the rise and bettors that jump on Orlando at the start of this ascent will be rewarded.

Orlando Magic Record
Since the Magic entered the NBA in 1989, they’ve been an organization that prefers to have a dominant big man to build around. In the early years they had Shaq, and after a few lean years when he left town they grabbed Dwight Howard. Both of those centres were able to lead Orlando to the NBA Finals, although neither was able to bring a championship to the city. These days that role falls on the shoulders of Nikola Vucevic as he is an imposing force under the rim and cleans up the glass at will. Yet, the difference between Vucevic and the others is that he may be the most athletic of the group and is a more willing passer. Those attributes are definitely more suited for today’s NBA.
Aside from Vucevic, the Magic’s young core of Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton, and Victor Oladipo provide this organization with talented young guns who look to grow up together in this league and experience growing success along the way. Improving the number of wins each year is a great indicator for bettors that this team is on the up-and-up going forward. The fact that Orlando finished with the 2nd best against the spread record (45-36-1 ATS) in the 2015-16 season is another sign to bettors that this is a team you can definitely trust with your money in the foreseeable future.
