The Magic are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Orlando Magic are a tough team to get behind with confidence, and them being on the end of a back to back doesn't help. However, the Magic did just take the Clippers down to the wire yesterday, and that's encouraging. The Los Angeles Lakers just aren't a good basketball team, and they simply get respect from oddsmakers because of the names on the roster and the fact they're a public team. I keep telling myself I'm not laying big chalk with the Lakers, and I'm sticking to it until further notice. It's Magic or pass for me.
