Who likes points?! Both the Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers have been getting “over” bettors to the window at a brisk pace over the last month. The over is 14-5 in Portland’s last 19 games. Each of Orlando’s last seven games have gone over the total. Are we in for another shootout on Monday night? Our Magic vs. Blazers preview, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

Date/Time: 02-2-2020, 19:00 EDT
Opening Spread: Orlando -7
Opening Total: 222

Orlando has been in the top-10 in defensive rating all season, while Portland is currently ranked 27th in defensive efficiency. The Magic will be seeking a bit of vengeance over the Blazers after being blown out in their Dec. 20 meeting. The Magic were down 20 in the first quarter of that first encounter and never recovered. When Portland is a road underdog getting less than ten points, the Trail Blazers are 9-18 against the spread this season. Orlando is playing a little better than their recent form has indicated, and we’ll be looking for the pendulum to swing back toward Orlando’s way at the Amway Center on Monday night.

Orlando Magic vs. Portland Trail Blazers Pick: Orlando 111 – Portland 102
