Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic are trying to solidify their spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs as they go through the mid-season. Scoring a win in their Western Conference swing is very important for them. Nikola Vucevic is the natural leader of this team but the team held on a bit when he was away with an injury. Markelle Fultz is the project player that the Magic are working on and he has been showing signs that he is indeed a player that could live up to his potential and he did just that doing a triple-double over the Lakers. On a back-to-back, they lost to the Clippers the next day. Against the Warriors, Vucevic will look to capitalize on the weak frontcourt.

Golden State Warriors Betting

The Warriors are still hoping that Steph Curry will wear his red cape and come into the locker room healthy this season as the team reached 10 straight losses since December 28. Their last game is an overtime loss against the Denver Nuggets, 131-132. With injuries to Klay Thompson and D’Angelo Russell, there is not much to expect anymore. Draymond Green is there but he is often out of the roster nursing injuries. Still, the Warriors are positive that this season is a way for them to polish their young players’ games so they can be great additions to the splash brothers when they come back.
