Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Washington Wizards vs Orlando Magic
The Magic will welcome the Wizards to Amway Center as they are coming off a loss against the Nets while the Wizards lost to the Warriors in their last game. Game tips off at 7:00 PM ET.
Washington Wizards's Latest Performance :
The Wizards are coming off a loss against the Warriors in their last game. They are currently the 10th seed in the East and are now 7 games below .500. It was going to be hard from the very beginning to beat the Warriors considering they were on an eight-game winning streak and Cousin is fitting in perfectly into their system. The Wizards season started not too well as they lost John Wall to an injury. They will look to bounce back against the Magic who are sitting in the 11th seed in the East. It will be a much easier game for the Wizards as they have better talent on paper when compared to the Magic. I expect Beal to have a great game scoring wise since he will be going up against Fournier in this game.
Orlando Magic's Latest Performance :
The Magic are coming off a tough loss against the Nets as they had no answer for the Nets backcourt in this game. The Magic kept the game close until the very end but missed clutch shots down the stretch. Aaron Gordon, making his return after missing two games due to back stiffness, was quiet offensively scoring ten points in his return. Vucevic led the way with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Isaac had 16 points h four rebounds and three blocks. Augustin had 19 points and six assists, Gordon had 10 points and six rebounds, and Simmons added 13 points off the bench. The Magic, who have lost 8 of their last 11 and now sit three games back of the eighth spot. They will need to play at their best against the Wizards if they want to keep their playoffs hopes alive. They are 12-13 when playing home this season.

Against The Spread Selection: Orlando Magic
My reason for the pick :
The Magic will be able to bounce back at home taking down the Wizards. Vucevic will dominate the paint as he will get the better of Bryant all night long. The Wizards continues to struggle on the road this season as they drop to 5-19 when playing away from home. Beal will have a great game but he will get no help in this game and it tough to win games in NBA nowadays if you are the only scorer on the team. Go with the Magic to cover the spread in this game.
