Denver at Orlando

1.5 units on Denver -7.5 (-102) (risk 1.5 to return 2.97) RESULT: WIN
The Denver Nuggets have been a hot team. They have gone 8-2 over their last 10 games and are coming off a loss to New Orleans. They were really vocally upset at the officiating in that game. New Orleans went to the line 30 times to their 10, and Nikola Jokic did not get to the line one time. They will no doubt be in an ornery mood as they take on a very injured Orlando team that has really played poorly recently. The Magic are just 1-10 over its last 11 games. The shooting has really been bad as the Magic has shot 43% or worse in seven of the 11 games. They have also had trouble turning their opponents over as their opponents have just 74 turnovers in their last eight games, or just 9.3 a contest. It's tough to win games that way, and Denver will come out for blood here. Make the play on Denver.
