Coming off that blowout win against the Toronto Raptors on Friday, the Boston Celtics will look to continue that momentum against the Orlando Magic, Sunday at 5:00 PM ET. If you are looking to place wagers on the Celtics’ upcoming game, take a look at our Celtics vs Magic betting predictions.

Now that Jayson Tatum is back in his groove, shooting seven-of-eleven from the field against Brooklyn, and seven-of-fourteen against Toronto, we can expect yet another strong performance in this one. One thing to watch for are the referees, they’ve been on his ass when defending star players recently, hindering his first half playing time. Kemba Walker is set to play under a minutes restriction, everyone else is healthy, and our young guys have been ballin’ lately. The Celtics beat the Magic in their last two matchups by at least ten points, and Gordon Hayward averaged 22.5 points per game. One guy to watch for the magic is Evan Fournier, he dropped thirty on the Celtics back in January and twenty-six in February.

Here’s a quick matchup breakdown.

Following a 108-101 loss to the Ben Simmons-less 76ers, the Magic are looking to get their first win since losing young stud, Jonathan Issac. With the size that Boston lacks, outrebounding the Nikola Vucevic, Khem Birch, and Aaron Gordon will be tough but given the talent of the Celtics, it shouldn’t really matter. Jaylen Brown has been playing at a very high level, averaging 22 points on 45% from three. Tatum chipping in with 20 points per game on 44% from three, JB and JT are ready for war…

On the flip side, Marcus Smart’s offense has been poor since his game-high, twenty-three points against Milwaukee, so I expect a turn for the better in this contest. Kemba Walker still on a minute restriction and we still can’t figure out what the hell Enes Kanter is doing out there.

Given the competitiveness of the Magic during the bubble, the Celtics have no easy path to victory. That being said, here are our betting predictions for Celtics vs. Magic.
