WHO ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Sacramento. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Kings are 2.5-point home favorites to beat the Magic, who opened as 4.5-point underdogs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 205.5 points after opening at 211 at some online sportsbooks.

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Orlando. As of Friday evening, 57% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Magic to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 73% of the betting tickets are on the over.

WHO WE LIKE: The underdog is a perfect 7-0 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams. So even though Aaron Gordon is out with a concussion, I still see plenty of value in the Magic catching points against a horrendous Kings team. After all, it’s not as if the Kings are healthy themselves.

Despite their struggles, the Magic have been a great bet of late. They’re 13-3 against the number in their last 16 games coming off a loss, are 17-7 at the betting window in their last 24 games overall, and are 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 road games.
