According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Magic are 1.5-point home favorites versus the Knicks, who opened as a 1-point road underdog. As for the total, the number hit the board at 210 and has been bet up slightly to 210.5.
New York enters play having dropped seven of its last 10 games and going 4-6 against the spread over that span. The Knicks still own a winning ATS record on the season at 33-30, but are just 15-16 against the number on the road this year.
Orlando has also lost seven of its last 10 games and is just 4-6 at the betting window over that span. The Magic are 26-36 at the betting window this season, which includes an unsightly 9-21 ATS record at home this year.
