The Knicks enter play having lost seven of their last 10 games and are just 3-7 against the spread during that same stretch. They do own a winning record against the spread overall at 31-29, but they're just 14-15 ATS on the road.

The Magic are also just 3-7 over their last 10 games, both on the hardwood and at the betting window. They're 24-35 against the spread on the season, which includes an atrocious home mark of 8-20 ATS.

OUR PREDICTION: I don't trust either of these teams to cover a point spread right now, so let's take a look at the total. The under is 3-1-1 in the Knicks' last five games overall and has cashed in seven of their last eight games when they play a team with a winning percentage below .400. The under is also 10-1 in the Magic's last 11 home games, is 4-1 in their alst five games overall, and has cashed in four of their last five games when coming off an ATS win.
