Magic vs. Charlotte Hornets Betting Prediction
The Hornets have been horrendous offensively this season. But their recent form has been promising. They have won five of their last six games, while winning with an average margin of eight points. Although they are not favored on the spread, they should be able to make this game competitive and give the Magic something to think about.
Orlando have been poor away from home, winning just 11 road games all season, making this even more difficult for them.
