Magic vs. Raptors Prediction
Will the over cash in Toronto when the Raptors host the Magic tonight at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Raptors are 9-point home favorites versus the Magic while the over/under currently sits at 206 points. As of this writing, neither the side nor the total have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers.
Orlando enters play having dropped six of its last 10 games and is just 3-7 against the spread during that span. Despite their issues over their last 10 games, however, the Magic have also won three of their last four games, including a 115-87 victory over the Pistons three nights ago. Terrence Ross scored 18 points in the win, while Elfrid Payton posted a triple-double, scoring 14 points, while nabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out 10 assists.
Toronto has won seven of its last 10 games and is 6-4 against the spread during that same stretch. The Raptors have won five in a row, including a 94-86 win at the Mavericks on March 25. DeMar DeRozan had 18 points in the victory, while Serge Ibaka also had 18 points to go along with eight boards.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 11-5 in the Magic's last 16 road games and is 42-19 in their last 61 games playing on two days of rest. The over is also 4-1 in the Raptors' last five home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400 and has cashed in four of their last five games when they covered in their previous contest.
