The Lakers are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Magic are 5-21-1 ATS in their last 27 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-2 in Lakers last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Magic last 7 home games. The Lakers are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Orlando and 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

The Orlando Magic are god awful across the board and not a team I'm eager to back, especially at home, where they're a brutal 4-14 against the spread. However, the Los Angeles Lakers are 18-27 against the spread on the season and are losing their last five games by an average of 11 points, while allowing 49.7 percent shooting from the field. The Lakers are a mess, and now there are rumors of their head coach getting fired. It's a complete circus in LA right now. If I had to bet this game, I'd grab the points with the Magic, but I wouldn't touch this game personally.
