Philadelphia 76ers vs Orlando Magic prediction

The Orlando Magic have fallen off a cliff the last couple of weeks, losing 7 of their last 10 games and really struggling offensively without Wagner in the mix. Maybe coming home helps the Magic, given they’ve been on the road in 8 of their last 10 games. Still, the 76ers are far and away more consistent, they’ve put together a nice week, and they did beat the Magic on the road by 10 points a couple of days after Christmas. I need more points to consider the Magic here. Give me the 76ers.
