The Pacers are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Orlando and 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
The Magic look like they're starting to turn the corner a bit and now have added depth thanks to their trade. The Pacers also aren't a good road team. I like the home team here.
