The Orlando Magic invade the Chase Center to take on the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.

The Orlando Magic have been in terrible form as they’ve lost eight of their past nine games and they will be eager to bounce back after falling painfully short to the Rockets in a 118-116 road loss on Friday. Cole Anthony led the team with 26 points and seven assists on 10 of 20 shooting, Franz Wagner added 17 points with five assists, Terrence Ross scored 18 points off the bench while Mo Bamba chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Magic shot 48 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 13-point deficit late in the fourth quarter, only to come up just short as the Rockets’ Eric Gordon drained the game-winning shot with just 1.6 seconds remaining.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their past 10 games, but they will be eager to bounce back here after getting stopped in their tracks by the Spurs in a 112-107 home loss on Saturday. Stephen Curry led the team with 27 points, eight rebounds and five assists, Jordan Poole added 16 points, Damion Lee scored 14 points while Juan Toscano-Anderson chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 39 from the 3-point line but they were slow to get going and trailed by as many as 22 points early, before rallying back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. However, despite having the lead and all the momentum late, it was the Spurs who escaped with the win behind a clutch 3-pointer from Derrick White off a missed free throw. Curry had another rough shooting night as he shot just seven of 28 from the field and five of 17 from the 3-point line.

Looking at the betting trends, the Magic are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Warriors are 35-17-1 ATS in their last 53 home games, 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a losing record and 22-6-1 ATS in their last 29 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall and the Magic are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Golden State.

The Magic have been plagued by injury all season and they’re coming into this meeting low on confidence after losing to the Rockets for their eighth loss in nine outings. The Warriors were the hottest team in the league before they lost to the Spurs at home in a heartbreaking loss on Saturday and I’m looking at Curry to break out of his slump after shooting just seven of 28 from the field. The line is very hefty, but I’m sticking with the Warriors to bounce back with a big win and cover at home.
