The Orlando Magic are just not a team worth backing right now, as they continue at both ends of the floor and have been rough ever since the Fultz injury. The Magic are also losing on the road by an average of 11.4 points. The Phoenix Suns appear to have figured things out and remain one of the most profitable teams in the league dating back to the NBA bubble. Two teams heading in different directions. I'll lay the chalk with the Suns.
