Raptors vs. Magic key players to watch
Scottie Barnes: Scottie Barnes is having a breakout season for the Toronto Raptors, shooting the ball at a career-high clip from 3-point range (39.4 percent). Barnes is coming into his own as the No. 1 option on offense for the Raptors, and he should have a ton of attention from the Orlando defense tonight.
Cole Anthony: Cole Anthony has been one of the best bench scorers in the NBA this season, averaging 13.4 points per game for Orlando. With Fultz still out, Anthony should have a big role in this game.
Paolo Banchero: The reigning Rookie of the Year, Paolo Banchero has not been scoring at a super high rate, but he is shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from 3. He is coming off a 24-point showing in a win over Indiana.
Raptors vs. Magic prediction and pick
This is just the second time all season Orlando has been favored at home, but the team covered the spread as a favorite in that game.
Overall, the Magic are an impressive 10-3 against the spread so far this season.
The Raptors are not bad against the spread, going 7-6 overall and 4-4 as an underdog.
Both of these teams rank in the top 10 in the NBA in defensive rating, but Orlando is elite on that end of the floor – No. 2 in defensive rating.
The Magic are one of the few teams that have the size and length to deal with the Raptors, and I think they stay hot at home on Tuesday.
