NBA Odds: Orlando Magic Over/Under for Wins at 23.5

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Only the Bobcats have a lower over/under wins figure for 2012/13, according to Bovada.

The oddsmakers at Bovada.LV aren't terribly optimistic about the Orlando Magic's season.

Bovada has set the over/under for Orlando's wins in 2012/13 at 23.5, the second-lowest figure among the league's 30 teams. Only the Charlotte Bobcats, who set an NBA record for lowest single-season win percentage in 2011/12, have a lower over/under figure, at 22.5 wins.

Orlando's odds of winning the championship, as one might expect, are also slim: Bovada gives the Magic 150/1 odds of taking home the Larry O'Brien in June, tying them with the New Orleans Hornets and Phoenix Suns for the third-worst odds in that respect. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors, and Washington Wizards (200/1) and the Bobcats (500/1) are the only clubs facing longer title odds.

Only three times in Orlando's 23-year history has the team failed to win more than 23 games. In 2003/04, the Magic went 21-61 and won the NBA Draft lottery, enabling them to select future Hall-of-Fame center Dwight Howard.
