The Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic head into game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals tonight at Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida, with an 8:30 PM EST tip off time. After the Celtics surprised many beating the Cavs in 6 games in round 2, they came into Orlando on Sunday to give the Magic their first loss in over six weeks with a 92-88 win as 6.5 point underdogs. The Celtics 4 point win in game 1 didn’t seem to phase the oddsmakers, as they have the Magic as 7 point favorites for tonight’s game. The Magic had looked dominant through the playoffs up until game 1 of this series, sweeping the Bobcats and then the Hawks in what was the leagues largest margin of defeat ever. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy didn’t like the performance of his team saying “I Was surprised to start a series with our energy level being what it was”. Orlando’s game plan evolves around big man Dwight Howard, who needs to better tonight – he was held to just 13 points on 3 for 10 shooting, with a game high 7 turnovers in game 1. Tonight’s Celtics vs Magic Game 2 of the Conference Finals promises to be a good one so don’t miss out betting on the game – below I have listed the game 2 betting odds, as well as my personal betting picks and predictions for tonight’s match up!

Celtics vs Magic Game 2 Betting Picks and Prediction:
Spread Pick – The Celtics have won four straight games, and three of their last four road games. Coming off of a four point victory in game 1, where the dominated most of the game, the Celtics are still 7 point underdogs tonight. Orlando has yet to beat Boston by more than 7 points all season in their five games played against each other, and the underdog is 6-0 against the spread in these two teams last 6 meetings. The Magic should bounce back with a better performance in front of their home crowd tonight, but the Celtics have proven they are a good team that is going to bring it each night – look for the Celtics to keep this game very tight and possibly pull out another upset. BET THE CELTICS +7 at -103.
Game Total Pick – I am not a big fan of tonight’s game total set at 188.5, but trends are pointing to another under here tonight. The under is 4-1 in these two teams 5 meetings this year, and 8-1 in their last 9 dating back to last season. The only time these two teams went over the posted total when playing this season it was a 96-94 Orlando win for a 190 point total. Tonight’s game should be sitting around the set total, but I have to play the trends with a slight lean towards the under. Celtics +7 is my play, but if you are looking for a prediction on the game total – BET THE UNDER 188.5 at -108.
