The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings between these two teams. The Magic, meanwhile, have been one of the least profitable teams in the NBA. They’re 0-4 against the spread in their last four games, are 0-5 against the number in their last five games playing on one day of rest, and are 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games versus an opponent with a losing home record.
