Both of these teams are on the struggle bus right now, but we're used to seeing this from the Kings ad their defensive effort is still downright brutal. The Orlando Magic are a better team than what they've shown up to this point and they are coming off a comfortable win over the Hornets. The Magic are far more likely to right the ship sooner than the Kings. In a near pick em game, I have to side with the Magic at home. You can argue the Magic should be bigger favorites.
