Orlando Magic vs Charlotte Hornets NBA Odds and Predictions: Recent form
The Orlando Magic came into this edition with an underdog tag. They defied all odds by getting off to a flyer winning as many games as possible in the initial phase.
Their winning trend continued with victories coming their way when they faced Wizards and Thunder in the subsequent games. They got the first taste of defeat against 76ers but two wins against Cavaliers meant that they were staying close to the 76ers in the table.
But things started to go downhill for them as they faced six back-to-back defeats against the likes of Rockets, Mavericks, Bucks, Celtics, Nets and Knicks. They finally got out of the jail with an important victory against Timberwolves in their last outing.
On the other hand, Hornets had to wait until the 3rd game to taste their first victory against Brooklyn Nets. They continued their momentum with a win against Mavericks, but losses against Grizzlies and 76ers meant that they were desperate to get back to winning ways.
They then went on a 4-match winning spree where they took down the challenges of Hawks, Pelicans and Knicks. They were once again stuck by a losing streak that pushed them down to 13th place with 6 triumphs and 9 losses so far. A win here on Sunday will do a world of good for them.
