The Nuggets have been on fire offensively and have one of the best records at home as they have lost only 3 games in Denver. The Magic have covered the spread in 4 of their last 6 games but the problem with the Magic is the defense, they're allowing over 120 points on the road while the Nuggets allow 108 points at home so I gotta go with the Nuggets to get an easy win at home.
