The Orlando Magic aren't a team you should be running to the window to back, as they don't win or cover games despite being underdogs nightly. However, the New York Knicks are underachieving up to this point, and that includes losing at home by an average of 2.7 points. The Knicks just aren't playing well, and there's no way I can lay double-digit chalk with confidence. It's Magic or pass for me.
