Orlando at San Antonio

Sunday 01/11 08:30 PM Eastern

5 units on Orlando +2.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: WIN

What a game this should be! The Magic are 29-8 overall and they are doing it just as well on the road as at home. On the road they are 13-5, scoring 101 per game. San Antonio has actually been better on the road this season (five losses) than at home (six losses). These defenses are about equal. Both average 93.2 ppg allowed. Orlando's is playing better right now however (90.6 per game over their last five). And, the Magic offense is quite a bit better. In other words, I think the wrong team is favored. Orlando will be motivated here too, wanting to go west and win on the road. The Magic are now 25-10 ATS as an underdog dating back to last season. And Orlando is 8-1 ATS this season in expected close games like this (games with a line of -3 to +3). Meanwhile, in those type of games, the Spurs are 11-22 ATS. Magic to win here!
