The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 Sunday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Magic last 6 road games. The under is 5-2 in Nuggets last 7 overall. The Magic are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Denver and 7-18-3 ATS in the last 28 meetings.
The Orlando Magic are on the end of a back to back with a G League roster, and now they have to play in possibly the toughest venue due to the altitude. This is just a rough spot for the Magic, and they'll have their heads down in this matchup after getting blasted last night by the Jazz. The Denver Nuggets have the rest advantage and are winning in the favorite role by an average of 7.2 points. Big number, but there's not much the Magic can do here. Give me Nuggets in a beatdown.
