The Orlando Magic will host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night at the Amway Center with tipoff set for 6:00 PM ET. As healthy as they have been all season, the Magic defeated the Raptors 113-109 on Friday to win their second straight game following a nine-game losing streak. Toronto continues to underachieve with a 13-13 record, and are 3-10 on the road this season. Key starter, A.G. Anunoby is listed as questionable for the Raptors while Wendell Carter Jr. is out for the Magic

Magic vs. Raptors Best Bets
Magic +6.5 (-110 DraftKings)
From a personnel standpoint, the Magic match up very well with the Raptors. They have split their two games so far this year. With Paolo Banchero healthy again and Franz Wagner coming into his own, the Magic have a solid one-two threat. The return of Franz’s brother, Moritz has helped to offset the frontcourt loss of Wendell Carter Jr. The Raptors are 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games. With the Magic just beating the Raptors as 8-point underdogs, I will gladly back them at home against a Toronto team that has been outscored on the road by an average of three points per game this season.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to +6)

Magic vs. Raptors Game Total Under 223 Points (-110 DraftKings)
Having just played both defenses should be quite familiar with how the other side is trying to score. Both teams also rank in the bottom third in pace per game. With both teams averaging a combined 219 points per game and Friday’s matchup between these two going below the total, I’ll side with the under in this one as well.
