Toronto is only 2-6 ATS overall in the last eight meetings and 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Orlando. While the Raptors are 41-17 on the season, they have been vulnerable on the road with a 17-12 mark. The Magic are on a six-game losing streak, but none of the six defeats have been by double digits and they have placed some tough competition during the stretch. Monitor Gordon's availability because his absence will certainly hurt and put a bigger burden on Nikoa Vucevic to have a huge night..
