The Orlando Magic have managed to make a series out of this best of seven NBA Eastern Conference Finals, winning two straight games after being down 3-0 in the series. The Bostons Celtics lead the series 3-2 and can finish of the Magic with a win tonight at home in Game 6 – Game time is set for 8:30 PM EST.
The series looked pretty much finished as the Celtics took both game 1 and 2 in Orlando and then crushed the Magic at home in game 3, but the Magic have climbed back winning on the road in OT on Monday and then a convincing 21 point win on Wednesday night at home. The Celtics come into this game as 3.5 point favorites. Boston knows they must win tonight, as they don’t want to head back into Orlando for a game seven. The Celtics are battling injury problems, with the most noticeable being Glen “Big Baby” Davis who suffered a concussion in game 5. No team has won a series in NBA history after trailing 3-0, but the Magic know if they can pull off a road win tonight that they will have a good chance at making history. Tonight’s Magic vs Celtics Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals promises to be full of action and excitement, so make sure you get your bets in! Below I have listed the Game 6 betting odds, spread and my personal prediction for betting.
Magic vs Celtics Game 6 Betting Odds:
Orlando Magic +3.5
@ Boston Celtics -3.5
Magic vs Celtics Game 6 Predictions:
Spread Pick – The Boston Celtics know that this is the game they must win to advance to the NBA finals. I look for the Celtics star players to step up with big games, and prove that they are the better team like they had in the first three games of this series. After beating the Magic by 23 points at home in game 3 the Celtics let off in game 4 at home losing in overtime. The Celtics are 6-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 8 home games, and being favored by only a small 3.5 points in tonight’s game I think they can get it done. BET THE CELTICS -3.5 ON THE SPREAD!
Game Total Pick – Tonight’s total is set at 188, which is around where it has been all series. The under is 3-2 in this series, with one of the games that went over the posted total taking overtime to do so. The under is 7-1 in Orlando’s last 8 games as a road underdog of 0.5-4.5 points, and 9-4 in their last 13 games as a road underdog overall. The under is also 5-1 in these two teams last 6 meetings in Boston. BET THE UNDER 188!
