The Magic are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Friday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Rockets are 16-37 ATS in their last 53 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Magic last 6 overall. The under is 38-17-1 in Rockets last 56 home games. The Magic are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Houston.

Maybe you don't believe in the Houston Rockets winning streak, and you're just waiting for things to fall apart. That's fair. However, that doesn't change the fact the Magic are still god awful. The Magic are losing their last five games by an average of 11 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 7.6 points. Backing the Magic, especially with small chalk on the road, isn't an option. I like the Rockets to win their fifth straight game.
