LINE MOVEMENT

The Magic opened as a 5-point favorite before the line moved up, while the total has come down from 212 points. The spread seems to be at -6.5 everywhere now, while the total can be bet at 210.5 or 211 at various sportsbooks.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Friday afternoon, 52 percent of public bets are coming in on Orlando. Online wager info also shows that 56 percent of bets are being placed on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Chicago small forward Paul Zipser (foot), center Cristiano Felicio (back) and power forward Lauri Markkanen (arm) are all questionable tonight. Point guard Kris Dunn (toe) is out indefinitely, while shooting guard Antonio Blakeney (wrist) is out for the season. Point guard Zach LaVine (knee) is out until early April. For the Magic, small forward Wes Iwundu (illness) is questionable. Power forward Jonathan Isaac (foot) is doubtful. Small forward Jonathon Simmons (wrist) is out indefinitely, while shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) is out for the season. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee) is out until early April. 

BETTING STRATEGY

The last six games in the Bulls' seven-game losing streak have all been lost by double digits, including a 103-92 loss yesterday at Miami which was one of the more competitive games during the stretch. With so many key players out, it's difficult for Chicago to even compete with the bottom feeders right now. The Bulls do have three straight up wins over Orlando this season, but with the Magic having a day off in between games and catching Chicago at the best possible time I believe the hosts should manage to cover the spread here.
