The Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets meet Sunday in NBA action at the Ball Arena. Let’s take a look at the odds, history, injuries and give out a pick for this game.

Odds

The Denver Nuggets are 10 point favorites against the Magic with a ML price of -500. The over / under is set at 231.5 points.

Last Meeting

The Nuggets beat the Magic 121-111 last February as 11.5 point favorites. The Nuggets have won 9 of the last 10 meetings against the Magic. However, the Magic has covered 3 straight games against the Nuggets.

Injuries

The Magic are still down Chuma Okeke and Jonathan Isaac, while Gary Harris is questionable with a hand injury. Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic are probable for the Nuggets, while they will be without Peyton Watson, Jeff Green and Collin Gillespie.

Trends

The Magic are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Nuggets are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Magic last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The Magic are 3-1-2 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Pick

The Orlando Magic have games where they surprise and put together an honest effort, but those games are few and far between. The Denver Nuggets are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, and they're a nightmare at home, where they win by an average of 11.5 points and shoot 52 percent from the field. Big line, but there's no reason the Nuggets can't get the job done here at home. I'll lay the chalk.
