The over is 7-2 in Pacers last 9 Friday games. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana and 6-16 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
The Orlando Magic haven't been right since Markelle Fultz went down with an injury, and they're certainly not a team I'm looking to back. The Indiana Pacers have been hit or miss lately, but they're still one of the more talented teams in the East and have the offensive firepower to roll in a contest like this one. The Pacers should win this game rather comfortably.
