Orlando played reasonably well over the last 3 in a mini home game stretch, but the road is a different story. The Magic have been getting destroyed when going up against decent competition in the visitor role losing by 11 to Charlotte, by 16 to Phoenix and 14 to Golden State. I believe that Brooklyn will want to keep their current playoff position and will probably need two more wins to do so. The line is certainly high so tread easy here.
Take the Brooklyn Nets -10.5
