Injury to Watch

Take Orlando. The Knicks have been dreadful at the betting window, posting an 0-6 ATS mark in their last six games and failing to cover the spread in all six of their last six games coming off a loss. The opposite is true for the Magic, who are 13-3 at the betting window in their last 16 games overall and who are 11-1 against the number in their last 12 games following a loss. Orlando is also 11-2 ATS in its last 13 conference tilts.
