The New York Knicks pay a visit to the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center on Tuesday night.

The New York Knicks have been heating up lately as they’ve won four of their past seven games overall and they will be looking to stay hot after blowing past the 76ers in a 108-97 win on Sunday. Julius Randle led the team with 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Jalen Brunson added 21 points with seven assists while Evan Fournier provided the spark off the bench with 17 points on six of 11 shooting. As a team, the Knicks shot 43 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and fell behind by 21 points in the first quarter, but they clamped down defensively and held the 76ers to just 18 points in the second and fourth quarters to pull off their best comeback win of the season.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their past four games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after beating the Hornets in a 119-113 road win on Sunday. Paolo Banchero led the team with 22 points with 10 rebounds and five assists, Wendell Carter Jr. added 20 points with 12 rebounds and three assists while Markelle Fultz chipped in with 16 points and five assists. As a team, the Magic shot 46 percent from the field and just eight of 23 from the 3-point line which aren’t great numbers, but they grabbed 18 offensive rebounds and shot 27 of 30 from the free throw line, compared to the Hornets who shot just 11 of 23 from the free throw line.

Looking at the betting trends, the Knicks are 27-10 ATS in their last 37 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record. The Magic are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games, 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record and 22-8 ATS in their last 30 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings overall.

The Knicks could be shorthanded again as Mitchell Robinson is still out and RJ Barrett is questionable, while the Magic have ruled out Mo Bamba and Chuma Okeke once again. The Knicks have been on a roll lately and they would’ve taken so much confidence from their thrilling comeback win over the 76ers on Sunday, while the Magic have been flying under the radar with three wins in their last four outings. You can make an argument for either side here, but the Magic are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record, so I’ll lean towards the Magic in a close one.
