NBA Matchup: Orlando Magic @ Miami Heat
Date: Sunday, March 18th, 7:00 ET
Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL
NBA Betting Odds: Miami -9
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

The Heat are a great team, and they are really a great team here at the AAA. That being said, they are a beatable team, as the Magic have proven in recent weeks. Chris Bosh doesn’t seem to be playing at his best, and now, he has to go up against Dwight Howard, a man that has owned him in his career. The Magic are playing loose now that they know their team is intact for the rest of the season, and D-12 is going to be in the City Beautiful for at least the rest of the season and into the offseason. If Orlando can play as well as it did against the New Jersey Nets on Friday, it is going to be able to win this game. This could be a true statement of a game for the Magic against the team that figures to be standing in their way between themselves and an NBA Championship, and it might take that title to keep Howard for the rest of his career.

NBA Pick: Orlando +9

NBA Matchup: Portland Trail Blazers @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Date: Sunday, March 18th, 9:30 ET
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -10
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

The Thunder are starting to look like a mortal team right now after losing to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, as they really have a shot to be caught by some of the other teams in the West. Portland is a team that is just trying to run down some of the best teams in the West to get into the playoffs, and it was able to take a big step in the right direction on Friday when it beat the Chicago Bulls on the road. If the Blazers can do that, they can do this as well, especially now that they are playing with some new swagger now that they have dismissed former Head Coach Nate McMillan.

NBA Pick: Portland +10
