  • Four of the Magic’s last five games against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Warriors vs Magic prediction

This line has shifted heavily in the direction of the Magic, and I get it. The Magic are at home with the rest advantage, and their 47 covers makes them the most profitable team in the NBA. The Magic have a cover percentage of 66.2 percent, which is comfortably the best in the NBA. The Warriors have had issues with consistency, and they’re on the end of a back to back. With that said, the Warriors did beat the Magic back in January, and they need to keep winning to keep the Rockets off their back for a spot in the play-in tournament. I’ll take a shot with the Warriors and the points.
