The NBA is putting forth a more subdued Tuesday night with five games set to entertain fans and bettors alike.
Kicking off the night is a matchup between Paolo Banchero's Orlando Magic and Pascal Siakam's Toronto Raptors. And to follow them is an exciting Western Conference game between the Sacramento Kings and the Phoenix Suns. Keep an eye on these teams who are all looking to make an immediate jump up in the standings.
Let's check out the bets!
When: 7:30 PM EST
|Orlando Magic||+6.0 (-110)|
|Toronto Raptors||-6.0 (-110)|
Both the Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors are looking to improve their position in the Eastern Conference standings. The Orlando Magic are 13th in the East with a 24-34 overall record and a 10-19 road record. The Toronto Raptors are 10th in the East with a 27-31 overall record and a 17-13 home record.
The Orlando Magic are a tough closing defensive team, as they hold opponents to just 34.8% from three-point range (7th in the NBA) despite allowing 13.1 threes per game (29th in the NBA). Orlando most recently overcame a fellow Eastern Conference team in the Chicago Bulls, as they held their opponents to just 14.3% from deep on just three makes. The Toronto Raptors are tough defensive team that limits opponents to just 112.4 points (11th in the NBA), 82.7 field goal attempts (1st in the NBA), and 16.6 forced turnovers per game (2nd in the NBA). The Raptors are coming off of a nervy win in their last game as the where outscored 41-35 in the fourth on 61.9% from the field.
With new center Jakob Poeltl in the fold, the Toronto Raptors' defence has looked more secure even if they're not in perfect sync. The Magic will be confident coming into this game, but with many rim deterrents they won't find the same success they found against the Bulls.
When: 9:00 PM EST
|Sacramento Kings||+3.0 (-110)|
|O 234.0 (-110)|
|Phoenix Suns||-3.0 (-110)|
|U 234.0 (-110)|

The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns continue to jockey for position in the Western Conference. Sacramento are currently third in the West with a 32-24 overall record and a 15-12 road record. Phoenix are just behind at fourth in the West with a 31-27 overall record and a 19-9 home record.
The Kings own the league's top offence, averaging 119.6 points per game (1st in the NBA) on 49.5% from the field (3rd in the NBA) and 36.5% from three (10th in the NBA). They overcame the Mavericks in their last game, scoring 133 points on 51.0% from the field while outrebounding their opponent 50-43. The Suns counter with a defence that allows just 111.3 points per game (5th in the NBA) on 46.7% from the field (8th in the NBA) and 36.0% from deep (10th in the NBA).
That defence will be the difference-maker for the Phoenix Suns in this matchup. Sacramento own one of the NBA's best offences, but with Chris Paul running the show Phoenix's offence can definitely keep up. We're taking the Suns, despite Sacramento's impressive win in their last game.
