Since trading Dwight Howard in August 2012, the Orlando Magic have won 10 fewer games than any other NBA team. Those lean times may be coming to an end, however, or at least according to SB Nation partner OddsShark.com: citing the Westgate Sportsbook, OddsShark says Vegas has set Orlando's over-under for wins in the 2014/15 season at 28.5.

A 28-win season would represent a five-win improvement for Orlando, which owned the league's third-worst record in the 2013/14 campaign.

The Magic came up one win shy of meeting their over-under in the previous season, as Vegas set it at 24 victories. Improvement from its young core of players--including Victor Oladipo and Nik Vučević--as well as the floor spacing new addition Channing Frye might provide, could help Orlando reach a more respectable win total.
