The Magic lost 7 of their 10 games on the road but they return home where they have a 13-9 ATS record. The Pelicans have lost 3 of their last 5 games and without Zion they have been struggling in defense allowing over 117 points on the road. Orlando played well in their last game against the Nuggets as they almost beat them on the road so I think they can get away with the win on this one. Take the Magic.
