The Orlando Magic and Sacramento Kings meet Friday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.
The Orlando Magic need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 104.7 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 23.3 points and 11.5 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 17.8 points and 3.6 assists. Terrence Ross is the third double-digit scorer and Aaron Gordon is grabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.9 rebounds per game.
The Sacramento Kings look for a win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.6 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 118.3 points on 47.8 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 23.4 points and 3.4 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.7 points and 3.5 assists. Buddy Hield is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Bagley III is grabbing 7.4 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 71.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Magic are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Kings are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 20-7-2 in Magic last 29 road games. The over is 9-3 in Kings last 12 home games. The Magic are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Orlando Magic are simply a mess right now, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 11.8 points. I doubt things get better with the Magic on the end of a back to back. I've bashed the Sacramento Kings over the years, but this stretch they've been on the last couple of weeks has been impressive, and they've worked their way to a profitable 13-11 against the spread record. Bottom line here is I'm not backing the Magic in any shape or form. Give me the Kings.
