The Warriors are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 games playing on 0 days rest and 28-12 ATS in their last 40 Monday games. The Magic are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Golden State and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Warriors and the big chalk is getting kind of out of hand. As we saw against the Lakers. However, I'm no longer confident in this Magic team. Instead, I'm taking the over. Both teams can score, and the over is 4-1 in the Magic's last five road games.
