Trail Blazers vs Magic prediction

The Trail Blazers are racking up the losses and aren't covering enough numbers to make them worth a look. Heck, we just saw the Trail Blazers lose to the Heat by 60 points. The Trail Blazers are ready for the season to end. The Magic are 48-26 ATS on the season, which makes them the best cover team in the NBA. The Magic have a cover percentage of 64.8 percent, and no team in the NBA is at least 60 percent. Massive number, but fading the Magic doesn't make sense and backing the Trail Blazers isn't an option. Give me the Magic in a home beat down.
