The Line: Phoenix Suns -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Orlando Magic head to Phoenix on Wednesday night to face off against the Suns.
The Phoenix Suns are currently sitting at 38-29 this season, but in the competitive West, that is only good enough for ninth spot. Currently the Suns trail the Mavs by a game and half for the final playoff position in the West, so from here on out every game is important for this team. The Suns head into this meeting with the Magic having dropped four out of their last six games, including a loss last time out in a meeting against the Nets on Monday night in Brooklyn.

The Orlando Magic had low expectations coming into the season, and while the Magic are still far off, there has been some signs of life this season from this young team. The Magic are just 19-49 on the season, and currently the Magic are in a battle with the Sixers and the Bucks for the worst record in the league. Orlando needs to get back into the win column, or they may just “catch” the Sixers and the Heat for that title. Currently the Magic have dropped six straight, with their latest loss coming on Tuesday night against the Warriors.
The Magic are just 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games against teams with a winning record, and the Magic are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games against the Pacific.
The Suns are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games against teams with a losing record, and Phoenix is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall.
