Result: Loss

Take the Wizards -1.5

These two teams are exact opposites of each other. The Magic rank 2nd in scoring defense but just 30th in scoring offense. The Wizards rank 30th in scoring defense but are 3rd in scoring offense. Typically I like to lean to the defensive team in these games but not in this one. The Magic are only giving up 101 ppg on the season but 112 ppg in divisional games. They are also banged up and without Vucevic and Aminu for this game. Add to the fact they are just 1-7 on the road this season does not help their case either as they really struggle away from Orlando. Look for the Wizards to get this game into a track meet right from the start. They will wear down the under manned Magic and pull away for the win and cover.
