Golden State Warriors Betting
Add another loss to the Warriors’ record after Friday’s 105-122 beat down at the hands of the Miami Heat. Golden State has now dropped 9 games on the road and 16 games overall this season, putting them at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. Jordan Poole gathered 20 points off the bench and Eric Paschall added 17 points in the losing effort.
Players to Watch: Eric Paschall (17.0 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 1.6 APG), Alec Burks (15.0 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2.7 APG), and Willie Caulie-Stein (7.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 1.1 BPG)
Orlando Magic Betting
The Orlando Magic once again failed to beat their chief tormentors to date, the Raptors, losing to the defending the NBA champions for the sixth straight time. Evan Fournier scored 19 points and Markelle Fultz added 15 markers. In the end, there wasn’t enough production from other players to outscore the Raptors in a low-scoring game.
Players to Watch: Evan Fournier (18.4 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 3.4 APG), Nikola Vucevic (17.1 PPG, 11.6 RPG, 3.5 APG), Jonathan Isaac (13.0 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 1.5 APG)

Golden State Warriors vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks
The Warriors are on a free-fall, and online bookmakers understand this much. That’s the reason why a subpar team like Orlando is entering the game with a near double-digit handicap (8.5). It shows how low the mighty Warriors have fallen this season in the eyes of oddsmakers.
Moneyline: The Warriors are 2-1 SU against the Magic in the last three games. Then again, it’s a different story now. While this Dub team has a punchers’ chance of pulling off an upset, my pick is still the Magic, who sports a winning record at home (6-4).
ATS: Other than Friday’s blowout loss to the Heat, the Warriors have been fairly competitive over the last few games. I like Golden State’s chances of covering the spread here. I feel they have enough in the tank to push the Magic in the early goings before falling by at six points.
TOTALs: The total opened at 208 points. The Magic has been successful in controlling the pace of the game in favor. The only problem with Orlando is they just don’t have enough great scorers on the roster. The same can be said on the Warriors, who are missing their big guns this season. Because of that, I pick UNDER.
Score Prediction: 95-89 Magic
