LINE MOVEMENT

The spread opened as a pick'em before shifting in Orlando's favor, while the total has dropped all the way from 204 points. The spread and over-under are at -4 and 198 everywhere.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 51 percent of public bets are on the visiting Mavericks. Online wager info also shows that an even 50 percent of bets are on the over and the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Dallas point guard Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) is out tonight. Center Nerlens Noel (suspension), shooting guard Wesley Matthews (leg) and shooting guard Seth Curry (leg) are all out for the season. For the Magic, power forward Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is doubtful. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee) is out until mid-April. Small forward Jonathon Simmons and shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) are out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

Both teams won yesterday with the Mavs topping visiting Portland by a count of 115-109, while the Magic won 97-73 at the Knicks. Dallas has won the last two meetings straight up and ATS. I have to side with the Mavs again tonight as laying four with a team as bad as the Magic doesn't feel like a great idea.
