The Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors meet Friday in NBA action at the Scotiabank Arena. The Orlando Magic need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Toronto Raptors need a win after losing five of their last eight games.
The Orlando Magic are averaging 104 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 46 percent shooting. Cole Anthony is averaging 17.4 points and 5.7 rebounds, while Franz Wagner is averaging 15.7 points and 4.6 rebounds. Wendell Carter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Jalen Suggs is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line.

Fred VanVleet is averaging 21.4 points and 6.9 assists, while Pascal Siakam is averaging 21.1 points and 8.4 rebounds.

The Magic are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The Raptors are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 5-2 in Magic last 7 road games. The under is 5-2 in Raptors last 7 overall. The Magic are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 1-9 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors are going to be big favorites for obvious reasons, but they're in a bit of a slump right now, and I'm not sure playing on the end of a back to back helps matters. The Orlando Magic have issues of their own, obviously, but 19 of their 28 covers this season have taken place on the road. With the rest advantage, there's some value with the Magic and the free points here. I'll take a shot with the road dog.
