The Magic are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games. The over is 5-2 in Magic last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Trail Blazers last 5 overall. The Magic are 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Orlando Magic are watching the injuries pile up and their play is getting worse, as they're losing their last five games by an average of 15.2 points. The Portland Trail Blazers have injuries of their own, but they will have the best player on the court for this one and have been able to be competitive despite the losses. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Trail Blazers at home.
