Why Bet on the Orlando Magic?
The Magic were two points away from earning their first back-to-back wins of the season. However, the Rockets had other plans in mind. Despite coming from a victory against the Nuggets, the Magic failed to build on the 108-103 victory. This time around, they face a tougher test in the Warriors.
The team averages 100.6 points (28th) per game on 42% shooting (28th). The team hits 12.2 three-pointers (15th) on 38.0 three-point attempts per game (eighth). Cole Anthony is the team’s leading scorer. The guard averages 20.2 points per game and holds a team-high 6.0 assists per game as well. We expect the sophomore to lead the offensive line for his team on Monday.
Defensively, the Magic allow 110.0 opponent points (24th) per game. They hold opponents to a 34.8% shooting percentage (17th) which should help ease Steph Curry from downtown. But, the squad has to fire on all cylinders if they want to keep the scoreline close.
Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Warriors suffered their second home loss of the season. They lost to the No. 12 seed of the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs, which came as a shock to everyone. We expected the Warriors to breeze by Gregg Popovich and his squad, but the veteran coach had something else in mind.
Nonetheless, the Warriors remain one of the most dominant teams in the league right now. They average 113.1 points (third) per game on 47.5% shooting (third). Stephen Curry is the team’s talisman. The guard has been producing incredible numbers since the start of the season. He holds team-high records in points and steals. Curry averages 27.5 points and1.7 steals per game.
The side exhibits balance on both ends of the floor, which makes them more impressive. The Warriors average the least opponent points per game and hold them to low shooting percentages. At the time of this writing, the team allows 100.8 points (first) per game on 42.4% shooting (first).

Magic vs. Warriors Expert Betting Prediction
The Warriors are the overwhelming favorites to take this one home. Despite losing their previous game to underdogs, they have been performing beyond other teams. The Magic need to produce a season-best game to pull off an upset victory. Covering the spread should be a relatively easier task for the side looking at their recent results. This clash is likely to be a one-sided contest in favor of the Warriors. They hold the home-court advantage and the firepower to overrun the Magic. Nevertheless, the visitors can make this one interesting if they keep the deficit within single digits by the final quarter.
