The Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Thunder are 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Magic last 10 overall. The over is 12-3-1 in Thunder last 16 overall. The Magic are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
I don't want to back the Oklahoma City Thunder as much as the next guy, as they've not only lost 10 straight games, but are losing their last five games by an average of 9.2 points. The Orlando Magic are playing the better ball right now. However, the Magic are on the end of a back to back, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.8 points. Also, say what you want about OKC, but it is a team that's a profitable 43-25-4 against the spread on the season. You somehow make money betting on the Thunder. With the rest advantage and home court, give me the Thunder and the free bucket.
