The Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Magic last 10 overall. The over is 30-11 in Pelicans last 41 overall. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New Orleans and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The Orlando Magic are pretty much a G League roster at this point and it's hard to back them with confidence these days. However, the Pelicans aren't exactly lighting the world on fire, despite some recent success, and they only win at home by an average of 3.5 points and in the favorite role by an average of 3.7 points. The Pelicans are 1-5 against the spread when favored by 7.5 or more points. It's the Magic or pass for me.
