LeBron James scored just 20. Toronto’s D led the squad to a win against the Miami Heat in their second game, 107-103.

Why bet on the Orlando Magic to cover at +5?
Orlando may be the NBA restart’s surprise squad. Granted, the Magic have beaten Brooklyn and Sacramento so far. But the way Orlando has played implies that they can stick with any team they’ll face during the restart. The Magic dominated the Nets 128-118. Then, they beat up the Kings 132-116. Orlando has 5 points to work with on Wednesday. That gives them a chance to cover.

NBA Raptors vs Magic Final Betting Analysis
At first glance, it sure looks as if the Raptors will dominate. But before we jump all over Toronto, we must consider the strongest betting trend available.
The Magic are a ridiculous 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games. Orlando has a cohesive unit that plays in their city. The Magic are the only squad in the NBA that has home games. Heck, Orlando has home games every time they step onto the court.
Not only that but going back to March 6, the Magic have won 5 in a row, including beating the Houston Rockets 126-106 on March 8.
Giving a hot, solid squad like the Orlando Magic 5 points doesn’t seem wise. Back Orlando to cover.
