Magic at Suns picks and predictions


Suns 126, Magic 118


The Magic are only 12-22 on the road this season, but are 6-3 in their last 9 road games. The Suns are 22-12 at home and, while they have lost 3 straight games, should not have too much trouble against Orlando.

But there is no point wagering 3 times what you can win on this game for the Suns to win.


Against the spread

The Magic are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10. The Suns have failed to cover the spread in their last 3, but prior to that, they had 6 straight games without an ATS loss.

The Suns are 18-15-1 ATS at home, which is matched by the Magic’s identical mark on the road.

After 3 straight losses, I am anticipating a bounceback performance from Phoenix.

BET SUNS -7.5 (-115).


The Magic have allowed more than 130 points in 3 of their last 4 games. The Suns are averaging 115.9 points per game over their last 10.

The Over is 5-0 in the Magic’s last 5 games while the Over is 4-0 in the Suns’ last 4 home games against teams with a losing road record like the Magic.

BET OVER 228.5 (-108).
