Orlando Magic Betting History

The Orlando Magic had a horrible 2013/2014 season in all regards. They only won 23 of their games and finished last in their division. They also had a poor betting season, beating the spread in just 43% of their games - the worst stat in the entire NBA. The Orlando Magic even underperformed the Online Sportsbook's predictions, scoring lower scorelines than they'd set. However, this became lucrative if you bet on the Under option in Over/Under betting seeing as they returned a 57.5% under percentage versus 42.5% over.

2014/2015 Orlando Magic Schedule

The Orlando Magic's 2014-15 schedule is heavy on road games in November and December but more forgiving in February and March when Orlando has several extended stretches at home. A stretch from Dec. 30 through Jan. 31 will feature the return of three key members of the Magic teams that reached the NBA Finals in 2009 and got to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2010: former coach Stan Van Gundy, Dwight Howard, and Jameer Nelson.

Orlando Magic History

The Orlando Magic entered the NBA as an expansion franchise in 1989. The Magic have been very successful in its history and has qualified for the playoffs in fourteen of their twenty-four seasons in the NBA. Orlando has been the second most successful of the four expansion teams brought into the league in 1988 and 1989 in terms of winning percentage, after the Miami Heat. The Magic have produced a number of star players with superstars Shaquille O'Neill, Anfernee Hardaway, Tracy McGrady and Dwight Howard beginning their careers at the franchise. The Magic made their first appearance in the NBA Finals in 1995 but were swept by the Houston Rockets 4-0. The franchise lost O'Neill to the LA Lakers but continued to be regular playoffs qualifiers led firstly by Hardaway and then O'Grady. The Magic went through a terrible period during the 2003/2004 NBA schedule but won the draft lottery and picked Dwight Howard with their first selection. Howard led the Magic to five straight playoff appearances and the 2009 NBA Finals where they lost to the LA Lakers. The franchise has yet to rebuild itself after Howard left the franchise to sign with the Lakers.

Orlando Magic Star Player: Victor Oladipo

Victor Oladipo was chosen second overall in the 2013 NBA Draft pick by Orlando. Before that he played college basketball for Indiana. In 2013, he was named the Sporting News Men's College Basketball Player of the Year, the National Co-Defensive Player of the Year, and a First Team 2013 All-American by the USBWA and Sporting News. That same year, he was also named the recipient of the Adolph Rupp Trophy, given annually to the top player in men's Division I NCAA basketball. His combination of explosive athleticism, defense, and efficient shooting has drawn comparisons to Dwyane Wade - which the Orlando Magic desperately need.

Orlando Magic Star From the Past: Anfernee Hardaway

Anfernee Hardaway was selected with the third overall pick of the 1993 NBA draft by the Golden State Warriors before being immediately traded to the Orlando Magic. In his rookie season Hardaway helped lead the Magic to their first playoff appearance in 1994 and was selected in the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Hardaway developed into one of the leading players in the NBA and was able to lead the Magic to four straight playoff appearances despite losing Shaquille O'Neill as his partner. The four-time All-Star suffered a nasty knee injury during the 1997-1998 NBA schedule that he never really recovered from. Hardaway left the Magic in 1999 and had unsuccessful stints at the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks and Miami Heat.

Orlando Magic Head Coach: Jacque Vaughn

Jacque Vaughn was named the head coach of the Orlando Magic in 2012 just three years after ending his NBA playing career and two years as an assistant coach at the San Antonio Spurs. Vaughn has faced a difficult task in his past two coaching seasons, trying to rebuild an Orlando Magic roster that has lost its focal point and star player. The Magic have finished both seasons under Vaughn at the bottom of the division, and while he has been given time to rebuild the team, his upcoming third season might be his last shot.
