Market Report for Tuesday, January 4th

*Indicates team is on the second leg of a back-to-back

**Lines are opening numbers

Philadelphia 76ers (-7.5, 210.5) at Orlando Magic

Philadelphia is starting to find its groove and enters tonight on a 5-1 SU/4-2 ATS run over which they have a + 10.4 net rating. Their defense remains one of the best in the NBA at 107.1 points per 100 possessions allowed, but their 117.5 offensive rating over this span is the biggest difference. One would think that a team like Orlando is going to have some trouble in this meeting despite a 5-3 ATS record over the last eight games. The Magic have still been outscored by 6.1 points every 100 possessions during this eight-game spurt, and their offensive rating of 104.3 is atrocious. Orlando is also dealing with multiple injuries still as well, as Cole Anthony and Moritz Wagner are questionable to play and Jalen Suggs is still out. The initial market move is toward the 76ers here, which is not a surprise given the run the team is on and the public nature of the team. However, this is still a team that has not handled the role of a favorite well. Philadelphia is 12-6 SU/7-11 ATS when laying points this season showing its overvalued nature by the market.
