The Heat take their 26 game win streak to Orlando in a All-Florida showdown. Get NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Heat (55-14) are playing for history. They have already locked up the second-longest streak in NBA history with 26 and still counting. They are only seven games away from the record of 33 straight wins held by the Los Angeles Lakers from 1971-1972. They demolished the Bobcats 109-77 thanks to LeBron James’ near triple-double performance. LeBron has been absolutely stellar this season and is leading the team in points (almost 27), rebounds (8.2) and assists (more than 7) per game. Whenever the Heat are on the ropes during this streak, they remain cool, and calm and reduce the deficit with ease. The Heat have the best record in the NBA on the road at 23-11.
The Magic (18-52) have been pretty rough to watch this year. They have the second worst record this year, just a game and a half ahead of the awful Bobcats. At home, a place that should be a fortress, the Magic are just 10-26. They have lost their last six games and eight of their last 10 games. The Magic have lost both games to the Heat this year, by a combined three points.
The Heat are 36-33 against the spread this season and 18-16 away from home. After wins, and there have been a lot of them, the Heat are 27-27. The Magic are 31-38-1 ATS this season and an awful 12-24 ATS at home. After losses, there have been a lot of them as well, Orlando is 22-28-1.
The Heat will win this game and move the streak to 27. No doubt in my mind but the point spread is too high for the Heat on a back to back so take Orlando and check the sports odds.
