Orlando Magic vs Memphis Grizzlies prediction

Give the Memphis Grizzlies credit for finding ways to upset the Raptors and Heat, but they're still fielding a G League roster, and it's hard to get behind them with confidence with so many starters missing. The Grizzlies aren't an NBA team at the moment with so many guys on the injury list. The Orlando Magic have their issues as well, but they're still 28-16 ATS on the season, and that's a team that should make bettors happy. With a 63.6 percent cover percentage, only the Thunder have a better cover percentage in the NBA. I'll lay the chalk with the Magic.
