Orlando Magic vs. Washington Wizards
Play on: UNDER 198 Points

The Orlando Magic look to continue their solid play on the road when they visit the Washington Wizards. Game time is set for 7 PM ET at the Verizon Center.

The Wizards (6-11, 7-11 ATS)are slightly above break- even going 5-4 after opening the season 2-8. John Wall led seven players in double figures with 25 points in Monday’s 118-113 win over the Brooklyn Nets, which salvaged the finale of a three-game road trip for Washington.

The Magic (9-12, 8-13 ATS) are 3-1 thus far on their five-game trip, including a victory at San Antonio and another Sunday against a Detroit team that had won five of six. It’s a marked improvement for Orlando which went winless at home against three sub-.500 teams including Washington.

Opponents are averaging 89.5 points against the Magic on the road trip and Serge Ibaka is a big reason for the improvement on the defensive end. The former OKC star was a big force against Detroit with a season high-tying four blocks and a season-high three steals. He also had 21 points on 9 of 11 shooting and has scored at least 16 in five of his last six games. One of those was a 19-point, eight-rebound, four-block effort in the 94-91 loss to Washington last month.

Orlando is 1-5-1 in the last 21 series meetings and 1-8-1 in the last meetings in Washington. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games but 0-5 vs. the number in their past five against the NBA Southeast Division.

The UNDER is 7-2 in the last nine meetings while the Magic are 4-0 the UNDER in their last four overall. Orlando is 6-0 ATS in its last six road games.
