1* Orlando (7:05 ET): We have two teams at the opposite ends of the spectrum here, but getting the Spurs w/o rest, I think that the Magic are worth a shot plus the points here. The Spurs did win again yday, in convincing fashion, 95-81 over Miami. But this spot reeks of a letdown while Orlando has had four days off to prepare.
San Antonio has now won four straight, all by double digits, as well as seven of their last eight. They're still only sixth in a loaded Western Conference, but I don't think there's a single person right now who feels the defending NBA champs are the sixth best team in their own conference right now. That being said, the Miami to Orlando road trip historically can be a challenge, no different than the Texas road trip that other teams face and the Spurs benefit from. The win streak has SA overvalued coming into this one.
Following last night's win, San Antonio is still only 19-18 SU on the road this season. Meanwhile, Orlando is 3-0 ATS when playing w/ 3+ days rest. Things may not have gone well for the Magic lately (lost 9 of 10), but having lost three straight at home & w/ ample rest they should be ready to compete here. It may not be a "pretty" play, but take advantage of a generous number and go w/ the underdog. 1* Orlando
