Orlando Magic vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Orlando Magic have been a bit shaky these last couple of weeks, and they're coming off a tough loss last night to the Heat. Not going to be easy to get off the canvas for this one. The Oklahoma City Thunder are at home, rested, and they're 25-12 ATS on the season. Massive line, but it's OKC or pass for me. Can't get behind the Magic in this spot.
