The Orlando Magic are off to a solid start offensively and get to play a team they just scored 130 points against while shooting 50.5 percent from the field. The Washington Wizards have allowed a combined 243 points in their first two games and simply don't have the offensive firepower to respond if those sort of numbers continue. It's never easy to beat the same team twice in as many days, but getting the Magic in the underdog role feels like a steal in this spot.
