On January 1 2020, 6:00 PM ET. Capital One Arena, Washington will have a duel with Orlando. Will the “wizards” help their native walls in this confrontation? – read in our predictions.

Orlando Magic 14-19 (13-18-2 ATS)

Like last season, Orlando performs well at home. But away “magicians” play disastrously badly. At the moment, Clifford’s wards have lost 4 of 16 away confrontations, and in the last matches on other people’s floors they lost to Portland (103-118) and Milwaukee (100-111).

The match with the “Washington” “Magic” is not suitable in a good mood. Two days ago, they were defeated at home by the Atlanta (93-101). Aaron Gordon did not play in that meeting. Perhaps he will miss this meeting.

Washington Wizards 10-22 (16-15-1 ATS)

Washington has big problems with the roster. Immediately seven players are in the infirmary. True, in this meeting Bradley Beal may appear on the floor. The day before he had a full training session with the team. But even without their leader, the Wizards managed to beat Miami (123-105). In that meeting, Jordan McRae and Harrison Matthews performed very well. On the account of this tandem 57 points eight rebounds.

It is worth noting that this season Washington is unstable. For example, after a home victory over Philadelphia, the “wizards” at home lost to the Knicks.

Orlando Magic vs Washington Wizards Predictions

“Orlando” is not the best way to play away. In addition, the injury of Aaron Gordon should play into the hands of the “sorcerers.” We believe that in this situation, the players of “Washington” will be able to give battle to the favorite. Perhaps they won’t succeed, but the Wizards are obliged to resist.
