Money line

The home team has won the three previous meetings this season between the two teams. The Magic beat the Pistons 119-113 at home on Jan. 28.

The Magic are the league’s worst home team at 8-25, but the Pistons’ seven road wins are tied with the Houston Rockets for fewest in the NBA.

The Magic are 3-5 in their last eight home games.

I LEAN MAGIC (-140).
