The (26-9) Houston Rockets of the Western Conference Southwest division are in the “SUNSHINE STATE” for an out of conference matchup. Houston play’s the (12-26) Orlando Magic of the Eastern Conference Southeast.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. The teams will play at the Amway Center in chilly downtown Orlando, Florida.

The local television networks will broadcast the game.

The National Basketball Betting Experts at Charliessports.com are on fire and will continue to break bookmakers in 2018.

The Houston Rockets acquisition of Point Guard Chris Paul seems like the best offseason move of any team in the league.

Orlando must find some chemistry; they gave up on former first-round pick Victor Oladipo too soon.

The Opening Betting line has the Orlando Magic as a seven and a half point home underdog against the spread.

The betting odds total is 220 points for Wednesday’s contest.

The 2017-18 Houston Rockets have a comfortable lead in the division.

However, the Rockets broke a five-game losing streak on New Year’s Eve in an overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

After being an asset to point spread bettors early last month, the Rockets have dropped their last seven to the number.

Making matter worse franchise player James Harden will be out until the middle of the month with a hamstring injury.

Head Coach Mike D’Antoni will get to see what kind of players he has on the roster as bench players must step up their games.

Houston is the top scoring team in the NBA, but they will miss over thirty-two points per game from Harden.

Eric Gordon is a prolific three-point shooter, one of many in the rotation.

Chris Paul must show on the court leadership abilities the next few weeks, and the interior players have to rebound and play defense with authority.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Houston Rockets total wins at fifty-seven and a half games for the season.

 

The Orlando Magic have been spinning their wheels over the past few seasons.

General Manager Jeff Weltman brought in former Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel to get things going the right way, so far no results.

Orlando is just 1-9 their last ten overall and 2-8 in the same span against the spread.

Vogel is known as a defense-first oriented coach, but they rank nearly the bottom of the league statistically.

Forward Aaron Gordon is one of the bright spots on the roster and is the leading scorer but must become more durable.

Evan Fournier and Nikola Vucevic can score the basketball with the best at their respective positions.

Point Guard Elfrid Payton is the best in the NBA on defense and makes those around him better, but he must develop a jump shot.

The key to a Magic victory Wednesday is to play with the intensity of every possession.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Orlando Magic Over/Under win total also at thirty and a half games.

The Ohio University offense is predicated on running the football, just like UAB.

The Bobcats are usually known for their tough defense, but moving the football is the calling card in Athens, Ohio this season.

Ohio University must find motivation after missing out on the Mid American Championship game.
