Orlando Magic vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

The Orlando Magic are 29-17 ATS on the season, so despite the losses, I did consider grabbing the free points. With that said, I'd need more points to pull the trigger with the Magic. The Dallas Mavericks play their best ball at home, and Luka is tapping into a completely different bag as of late. If that continues, I have a hard time believing the Magic have enough firepower to respond. The line is reasonable. Give me the Mavs and the chalk at home.
