Over the last 10 games between the Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic, the Nuggets are 7-2-1 against the spread. The only positive from the Orlando perspective is they've covered in two of the last three games.
Over the past month, Denver has been covering less than 50 percent of the time. They did go on a three game run during the the first week of March, however.
Orlando hasn't been playing well ATS over the last month either. The Magic have been hovering at .500 ATS. We'll see if they can change the current trend but they haven't played well against Denver at home.
