NBA Finals Game 2  Magic vs. Lakers Odds

Heading into the early morning hours of Sunday, NBA Finals Game 2, Magic vs. Lakers odds were listed at -6 ½ across the board with Sportsinteraction.com featuring a line of +7 for all your Orlando fans out there.

The Los Angeles Lakers dismantled Orlando in Game 1.

Kobe Bryant finished Game 1 with 40 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, marking just the fourth time in NBA Finals history a player has achieved those numbers in a single game.

"I just want it so bad, that's all," Bryant said. "I just want it really bad."

Will he want it that bad in Game 2?

Orlando just might want it more.

Van Gundy has reminded his players that they can get back in the series. Orlando shot just 30 percent from the field and center Dwight Howard made only one field goal.

The Magic have spent the entire season in comeback mode. It's time to rally again.

"We've been through it," said Van Gundy, who plans to keep his rotations intact for Game 2. "As the playoffs have gone on, I'm given them history lessons of just about anything that can happen in the playoffs, people being blown out at times. All of us were upset with our performances the other night; I wasn't happy with mine, I don't think they were happy with theirs. We're anxious to get back at it."

Over the last 6 games, Orlando has only lost by more than 6 points against the Lakers this past Thursday.  Historic trends certainly side with The Magic coming into this game, at least Against The Spread. 

One trend savvy sports bettors may be looking at is Orlando's performance on the road after a loss of more than 10 points.  They are 2-4.  The good news is they only lost by more than 20 points once and won the next game after that.
