Warriors look like a great spread bet vs Orlando

The Golden State Warriors are starting to regain their championship form after a slow start to the season. After dropping two of their first three games, the sleeping giant has erupted from its slumber as the Warriors are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games and have covered in six straight. They welcome to town an upstart Orlando Magic team that is third in the Eastern Conference at 8-5 SU.

SHARK BITES
  • Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are both averaging 25.2 PPG this season.
  • The Magic are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog of 14.5 or more.
  • Golden State is 15-2 SU in its last 17 games at home.

The Magic are one of the nicer surprises of the NBA this season. After years of botched draft picks and misguided free-agent signings, Orlando is making headlines in NBA circles and, in a weakened East, could contend for a playoff spot. But despite all this high-fiving and perceived success, Orlando will need to save it for another day. The Magic are 4-3 SU on the road this season but are 2-8 SU in their last 10 at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors are still business as usual and open as 14.5-point favorites. Being favored is par for the course for Golden State, but they’ve been covering the spread with ease lately. In their last six games, the Warriors are beating teams by an average of 21.5 points. Taking double-digit favorites in the NBA can be a tough task but when bettors are wagering on the Warriors to cover these days, they can feel more confident than men who wear Speedos.

The total opened at 229 and although the UNDER has hit in five of Orlando’s last seven games, bettors should always consider the OVER when a game involves Golden State. The total has gone OVER in 17 of the Warriors’ last 23 games, dating back to last season, and they lead the league in scoring again with an average of 120 points per game. If you’re placing a wager on the OVER, you’re hoping for Orlando to keep pace with Golden State and the good news is Orlando is no slouch, averaging 110.5 points per game, good for fifth in the NBA.
