The over is 4-0 in Magic last 4 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Spurs last 5 Tuesday games. The Magic are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Nobody should be eager to back the Orlando Magic in the big favorite role, but it's just an indication of how bad the Spurs are. The San Antonio Spurs lose on the year by an average of 10 points and lose at home by an average of 7.1 points. The Spurs lose as underdogs by an average of 10.9 points. No, thank you. Backing the Spurs isn't an option these days. Give me the Magic and the chalk.
