Bulls -1½ (-110) 203½ (-110) -123

The Bulls are coming off a 95-109 loss to the Pistons on Monday. Chicago has lost two straight and three of the last four following a four-game winning streak. Jimmy Butler had 27 points and nine rebounds, Robin Lopez scored 18 points, and Bobby Portis added 10 points and six rebounds while Jerian Grant had eight assists. Cameron Payne had 14 points off the bench. The Bulls were outscored 30-16 in the fourth quarter, which has become a trend for the Windy City team. Dwayne Wade missed his 10th regular season game a left quadriceps strain, and isn’t likely to suit up against the Magic. Paul Zipser made his sixth start this season in Wade’s stead. Additionally, Rajon Rondo will be a game-time decision against Orlando, according to head coach Fred Hoiberg. Rondo sprained his right ankle. The Bulls are 1½ games ahead of Miami and Milwaukee for the last playoff berth in the East. In NBA online betting odds trends, Chicago is 1-5 against the basketball gambling spread in the last six games when playing on the road against the Magic and 9-3 SU in the last 12 games when playing on the road against Orlando.

The Magic is coming off a 105-113 loss to the Knicks on Monday. Orlando has lost two straight and four of the last six. Courtney Lee scored 20 points, Lance Thomas added 17 and Derrick Rose 12, and Kris Porzingis had 14 points and seven rebounds. Willy Hernangomez had 14 added 14 points and eight rebounds off the bench. Not unlike the Bulls, the Magic have fourth quarter issues. Orlando blew a double digit lead for the second consecutive night on Monday, and allowed NY’s bench to hit 12 of 23 shots and go on 23-4 run to start the last quarter.
