The Golden State Warriors play host to the Orlando Magic at the Chase Center on Saturday night.

The Orlando Magic have been in decent shape as they’ve won six of their past nine games, but they will be hoping to bounce back after getting routed by the Clippers in a 122-95 road loss on Thursday. Nikola Vucevic led the team with 22 points, nine rebounds and four assists, Aaron Gordon added 20 points with five assists while Terrence Ross chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Magic shot just 39 percent from the field and 14 of 42 from the 3-point line as they were slow out of the gates and found themselves trailing by 19 points at halftime, before making it a blowout in the fourth quarter with their defense.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have been in a serious slump as they will be hoping to snap a 10-game skid after falling just short to the Nuggets in a 134-131 overtime home loss on Thursday. Alec Burks led the team with 25 points off the bench, Damion Lee added 21 points, D’Angelo Russell scored 19 points with nine assists while Glen Robinson chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 44 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 45 from the 3-point line as they started hot to jump out to an early 19-point lead, before the Nuggets rallied with 40 points in the fourth quarter to force overtime.

Looking at the betting trends, the Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record, 6-13 ATS in their last 19 Saturday games and 16-33-2 ATS in their last 51 games following an ATS win.

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

The Warriors showed plenty of fight in their last start loss to the Nuggets, but squandering that massive lead and losing in overtime must be painful. The Magic were building nicely before getting absolutely thrashed by a determined Clippers team, so they will be eager to bounce back. The Warriors couldn’t get the job done against the Nuggets despite shooting the lights out from behind the arc, so I really don’t like their chances against the defense of the Magic who are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Golden State.
