The Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors meet Sunday in NBA action at the Scotiabank Arena.

The Orlando Magic look for a statement win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 105.9 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 106.9 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 20.5 points and 12.1 rebounds while Aaron Gordon is averaging 15.8 points and 7.3 rebounds. Evan Fournier is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have split their last eight road games.

The Toronto Raptors look to stay hot while building on their seven-game winning streak. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 114.4 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26.9 points and 7.6 rebounds while Pascal Siakam is averaging 16.2 points and 6.9 rebounds. Serge Ibaka is the third double-digit scorer and Kyle Lowry is dishing 9.1 assists. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.5 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors have won their last four home games.

The Magic are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Magic are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the underdog is 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Raptors last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 5-2 in Magic last 7 overall.

The Orlando Magic beat the Raptors by 29 points in the last meeting when a five-point underdog, and the other meeting this season was a two-point loss when they were seven-point underdogs. The Magic head into this game red hot where they've won seven of their last nine, and they're allowing just 39.1 percent shooting while winning by an average of 20.6 points in their last five games. The Toronto Raptors are just 13-17 ATS at home this season and 8-15 ATS when favored by at least nine points. I like the value of the free buckets with the Magic. 

Pick:
Orlando Magic +9.5
