The Orlando Magic play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the Amway Center on Tuesday night.

The Brooklyn Nets have been a team on the rise and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win in this one after sneaking past the Knicks in a 110-107 win on Sunday. Kevin Durant led the team with a season-high 53 points, six rebounds and nine assists, Andre Drummond added 18 points with 10 rebounds while Bruce Brown chipped in with 15 points, seven rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Nets shot 49 percent from the field and six of 29 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 35 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before pulling away late in the fourth quarter thanks to Durant who scored the team’s last seven points.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in decent shape as they’ve won five of their last nine games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after coming up painfully short to the 76ers in a 116-114 overtime loss on Sunday. Wendell Carter Jr. led the team with 23 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks, Cole Anthony added 19 points with eight rebounds and three assists while Chuma Okeke chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Magic shot 45 percent from the field and 18 of 43 from the 3-point line as they squandered an early 17-point lead, before they let go of a four-point lead in overtime to come up just short.

Looking at the betting trends, the Nets are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games against a team below .400 and 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight road games, while the Magic are 5-1 ATS I their last six home games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall.

Head to head, the Nets are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall.

The Nets will be shorthanded once again as LaMarcus Aldridge is still out, while Cam Thomas and Seth Curry are both listed as questionable. The Magic are sweating on the availability of Gary Harris and Jalen Suggs who are both questionable. The Nets have predictably opened as heavy favorites in this one, but the Magic are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall. I like the Nets to get the win here, but I think the Magic do just enough to keep this one to single digits in the end.
