These are the two worst teams in the NBA in terms of records, which is going to lead to this being an interesting game to predict considering we never know what type of play either team is going to produce on a nightly basis.

Magic vs Pistons Preview

Detroit will travel to Orlando on Thursday for a battle versus the Magic. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Thursday’s game, check out our Magic vs Pistons preview below.

Pistons Trying To Win Short-Handed

The Detroit Pistons haven’t been able to find much success this season as their 18-51 record clearly shows that. They’re going to be coming into this one losing four games in a row including their most recent one where they were unable to beat the Miami Heat on Tuesday.

Detroit lost that game 105-98, as Jerami Grant led the way in the loss with 22 points.

On the season, Detroit has the 29th rated net rating, the 28th rated offensive rating, and the 24th rated defensive rating.

Magic Looking To Win Against The Other Worst Team In East

The Orlando Magic are hoping that they can end their two-game losing streak and beat this below-average Detroit Pistons team. They’re going to be coming into this one after a disappointing loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday where they gave up 150 points. Giving up 150 points in any game is inexcusable, as they allowed Kyrie Irving to score 60 points all by himself in this one.

On the season, Orlando has the 27th rated net rating, the 29th ranked offensive rating, and the 17th ranked defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Magic vs Pistons

For this game, I like the Orlando Magic to cover the 2.5 point spread. Considering that Cade Cunningham and Jerami Grant might not be playing in this one, I think we have to give the edge to Orlando.

Orlando has been one of the worst teams in the NBA this season, but so have the Piston. If they don’t have either Grant or Cunningham out there on the court, I can’t see any way that this team is going to find a way to win this one.
