The Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets square off in the NBA’s In-Season Tournament on Tuesday night. And there are a couple of plays I like for this matchup in the prop market.
With Orlando down a couple of key rotation players, there is one bench player to target in the prop market on Tuesday, and one Brooklyn player to fade because of his lofty points prop.
The Magic have been a great team to bet on against the spread so far this season. But can they carry us in the prop market tonight?

Magic vs. Nets best NBA prop bets today
- Cole Anthony OVER 11.5 points
- Mikal Bridges UNDER 24.5 points
Cole Anthony OVER 11.5 points
Orlando Magic guard Cole Anthony has struggled a bit in his last two games, scoring just four and seven points while shooting 1 for 10 from the field.
But he had been really solid prior to that, with his points prop hitting as high as 14.5 at sportsbooks. Anthony is still averaging 13.6 points per game for the season while shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc.
With Markelle Fultz out, Cole Anthony should have a solid role in this game against a Brooklyn team that is 17th in defensive rating this season.
I love this prop for Anthony to get back on track after he discord 12+ points in six of his first seven games.
Mikal Bridges UNDER 24.5 points
Mikal Bridges went off in his last game, scoring 27 points on 11-for-29 shooting, but I am not sold on him getting that usage again on Tuesday night.
That game came against the Washington Wizards, who rank No. 1 in the NBA in pace and No. 26 in defensive rating, a great matchup for an OVER bet for a leading scorer.
Orlando is quite different.
The Magic rank second in the NBA in defensive rating and 18th in pace, so they are going to not only defend at a high level, but the team is also going to slow the game down.
Bridges has only gone over this prop number in two of the Nets’ 10 games this season. Even with Cam Thomas out, I will take the under on this Bridges prop.
