The Magic are in Washington tonight to take on the Wizards at 7:00PM ET. Are they a solid underdog play?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Wizards are now 3-point home favorites versus the Magic after opening as a 5-point favorite late last night. As for the total, the number hit the board at 198.5 and that's where it currently sits.

MAGIC KEY TRENDS: The Magic are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games but are just 4-9 against the number in their last 13 games following a win. They're also 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games versus Eastern Conference opponents and have failed to cover in 12 of their last 17 games playing on one day of rest.

WIZARDS KEY TRENDS: The Wizards are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following an ATS loss and are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games versus Southeast opponents. They're also 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games versus seven Eastern Conference opponents and are just 3-9 at the betting window in their last 12 games playing on no rest.

OUR PREDICTION: There are only two teams right now with a better defensive efficiency number than Orlando: The Clippers and Hawks. The Magic own a defensive efficiency ranking of 100.8 and opponents are averaging 89.5 points against Orlando on the team's current road trip. Serge Ibaka is coming off a solid performacne against the Pistons in which he blocked a season high-tying four shots and had a season-high three steals as well. Give me a Magic team taking on a Wizards squad that played in Brooklyn last night and should be tired.
