The Orlando Magic are a scrappy-improved team that's competing, but they still have some showing and proving to do before you can get behind them on the road. The Brooklyn Nets are slowly starting to get healthy, they're due for a breakout performance at home, and they're 8-1-1 ATS on the season. Again, you have to keep backing the teams that keep putting money in your pocket. I'll lay the bucket with the Nets.
