The Warriors get here with a 3-5 record and are 0-4 on the road so far this season ranking 3rd in the Pacific Division. They lost their last game against the Miami Heat 116-109 on the road.

BETTING TRENDS

Golden State are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Golden State are 14-4 SU in their last 18 games against Orlando.

Golden State are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Golden State's last 14 games when playing on the road against Orlando.

Orlando are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Orlando's last 7 games against Golden State.

Orlando are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at home.

Orlando are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against Golden State.

 

Prediction

The Magic have been awful as they have lost 6 of their first 7 games of the season and are 4-14 in the last 18 games against the Warriors. The Warriors have struggled lately as they have lost 4 of their last 5 games and haven't won a game on the road yet. It's hard to trust in Orlando even at home but I'm not going to trust 8 or more points to the Warriors right now on the road so I think the best play is the under. The under has cashed in 5 of the last 7 head to head games.
