Orlando Magic Fantasy Spin

Evan Fournier (personal) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Mavericks. It's unclear exactly what Fournier is dealing with, but with the Magic off until Thursday after today's game, hopefully, this will only end up being a one-game absence. With Fournier unavailable, Jonathan Isaac may be able to return to the starting five, and guys like Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will be asked to do a bit more on offense.

Dallas Mavericks Fantasy Spin

Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) still isn't quite ready to return, when asked about his availability for Monday's game. Dirk is getting very close to a return, but isn't ready to set an official date for his return. With Monday off the list, his next chance to return will be at home on Wednesday against the Hawks.

NBA Betting Trends

Orlando Magic

The Magic are 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games and have covered in nine of their last 12 games overall.

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks have covered 10 of their last 13 games and 19 of their last 26 at home.

Prediction

The over has been incredibly profitable in this series, cashing in 19 of the last 26 meetings between these two teams and going 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings in Dallas. The over is also 7-3 in the Magic’ last 10 games coming off a double-digit loss at home and is 12-4 in the Mavs’ last 16 games when facing an opponent with a losing record.
