Orlando Magic vs Toronto Raptors prediction

The Orlando Magic just beat the Raptors by 10 points on the road on Friday, so you'd assume they'll be more comfortable at home. The Magic have now won 4 of the last 5 games against the Raptors. Also, the Magic are 44-23 ATS on the season, which makes them the best cover team in the NBA. That's a cover percentage of 65.6 percent. I've said many times this season, the Magic are a team you blindly back until the tickets stop cashing. That doesn't stop here. Give me the Magic in a one-sided victory.
