The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-15 ATS in their last 19 road games. The Magic are 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 24-9 in Trail Blazers last 33 Monday games. The over is 5-1 in Magic last 6 home games. The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Orlando and 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Backing the Orlando Magic in the favorite role is crazy to me, as they're just god awful, and that includes losing at home by an average of 12.4 points. The Portland Trail Blazers have their own issues as well, obviously, but they're shown far and away more promise this season, and they're expected to get CJ McCollum back in the mix. Not the best game on the card, but Id lean toward the Trail Blazers, especially with CJ playing his first game since December 4.
