CLIPPERS KEY TRENDS: L.A. backers have been burned over the Clippers last 14 games, as the team covered in just four of those contests. The Clippers are also just 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games when playing on one day of rest, are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games versus Eastern Conference opponents, and are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

MAGIC KEY TRENDS: The Magic have been a poor home bet while failing to cover in all five of their last five games in Orlando. They're also just 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 games following a successful cover in their previous game and are 3-7 against the number in their last 10 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest. They're 0-8 at the betting window in their last eight games when playing on Wednesday as well.

OUR PREDICTION: Neither the Clippers nor the Magic have been a great play of late, so let's look at the total. The under has cashed in six of the last seven meetings between these two tams and is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings in Orlando. The under is also 11-3 in the Magic's last 14 games when they're playing on back-to-back nights and is 6-0 in the Clippers' last six games versus an opponent with a losing record. These teams have played in some high-scoring games of late but with Orlando playing on tired legs, the under is a worth a roll of the dice tonight.
