Lakers vs. Magic NBA Finals Game 4 Betting Odds

The Lakers vs. Magic NBA Finals Game 4 betting odds have come in dramatically different from what we saw Tuesday night.  That game opened with a line of Magic -4, which hadn't moved at all.  And wouldn't you know it:  The Magic won by 4 points.

NBA Finals Game 4 betting odds have Orlando opening as the -2 favorite as they get set to play the second of three consecutive games at home.   Orlando is 5-2-1 ATS over the last 8 games in this series. 

Tuesday marked the first time the Orlando Magic won an NBA Final game.  Their first and only appearance resulted in a sweep more than 10 years ago.  Despite record shooting, Orlando only won by 4 points.

"Well, it was going in the basket. That always works," Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. "That formula's always tried and true."

The Magic shot a Finals record 62.5 percent from the floor.

The Lakers, meanwhile, tied an NBA record by losing their seventh straight Finals game on the road. The Fort Wayne Pistons lost seven straight from 1955-56.

"This is a tough team, not a cupcake team," Bryant said of the Magic. "Extremely well coached, execute well and we've got our work cut out."
With their season 48 minutes from all but disappearing, the Magic, hosting their first Finals game since 1995, had five players score at least 18 points. Rafer Alston, who was just 3 of 17 from the field in the first two games, had 20 and Hedo Turkoglu and Mickael Pietrus 18 each.

Nearly 90 percent of the online sportsbooks were offering the Magic as -2 ½ favorites.  betED.com had the best number on the Magic at -2.  You can check out other sportsbooks offering the Lakers at +2 ½ underdogs here

Despite the ads you might see for Draftkings, Oregon bettors are out of luck as Scoreboard is the official (and only) sportsbook licensed by the state, and they don't allow betting on any college games.  The good news is there are still options.
