Orlando Magic vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been fabulous at home this season, and they rocked the Magic about a month ago on the road, so I can understand why this line is what it is. However, the Magic are about as healthy as they've been in a while, and they're still 31-17 ATS on the season. With 31 covers, the Magic have surpassed the Thunder with the most covers in the NBA this season. You kind of just blindly back the Magic until the tickets stop cashing. Give me the road dog.
