4* NBA SMASH on Magic +5
Off back-to-back double-digit losses to the Pacers, including an embarrassing 23-point loss at home last time out, expect the Magic to play with a sense of desperation in Game 4.
The Magic are an impressive 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home. We can count on Stan Van Gundy having his troops ready to go here as his teams are 16-5 ATS all-time following a blowout loss by 20 points or more. His squads have actually won by an average of 5.3 points in this situation.
The Pacers are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games as a road favorite of 5.0-10.5 points and 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 playoff games as a favorite. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog of 5.0-10.5 points and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 playoff games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5 points. Take the points.
