Orlando Magic vs Houston Rockets – NBA Picks and Predictions – January 8, 2021

NBA Picks and Predictions on this Friday, January 8, 2021 game between the Orlando Magic vs Houston Rockets


Free NBA Picks and Predictions on Friday Night NBA Game between the Orlando Magic vs Houston Rockets. This matchup is set to tipoff January 8th at 8:05pm at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The Rockets are currently a -5 point favorite with the over/under at 227.5 total points. The betting public has 52% of their money on Houston as the home favorite.

Orlando comes into this game with horrible news. Their guard, Markelle Fultz will miss the remainder of the seasons due to a torn left ACL. In the 8 games he played this season where the Magic went 6-2 overall he average 12.9 points and 5.4 assists per game, so this news will be a big blow to the impressive start to the season Orlando has shown.

Orlando is 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games and the total has gone under in 4 of the Magics last 5 games.

Houston comes into this game just 2-4 overall to start the season after dropping their last two games against the Mavericks and then the Pacers on Wednesday Night. They are in desperate need of a win, but they’ll be without Danuel House Jr. He’s been listed as out due to back spasms. In their last game James Harden put up a double-double with 15 points and 12 assists, but John Wall led the Rockets with 28 points. Look for James Harden to have a bounce back game and come up huge in this matchup. We’ll be playing his player prop once the line comes out, so make sure you  text “FSN” to 99888 for access to it. Our last player prop on Jimmy Butler hit big for anyone who followed on Wednesday Night.

Houston is 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games and the total has gone under in 7 of the Rockets last 8 games at home.

The best bet on this Friday Night NBA game between the Orlando Magic vs Houston Rockets is to go ahead and take the Rockets -5 at the -110 price.
