The Orlando Magic host the Golden State Warriors in NBA action on Thursday night. The Magic (25-30) are in fifth place in the Southeast Division and are coming off a 124-115 win in Philadelphia. The Warriors (50-5) are in first place in the Pacific Division and knocked off the Hawks in Atlanta on Monday night, 102-92.  Take a look at some of this game NBA betting odds.

Why should you bet on the Magic?

The Magic are, slowly but surely, finding their way into decent play into the Eastern Conference. They are a young team, but they have the talent to contend in the next few seasons. They are surprising teams (such as the Dallas Mavericks, who lost in Orlando in overtime last week), but they’re not quite at the level where they will surprise the Warriors, who are back on track. However, if you can get a line over 10 or 12 points,  you might consider taking the Magic, who play strong defense, particularly at home.

Why should you put your money on Golden State?

It’s almost always a good idea to bet on the Warriors, as their 50-5 record indicates. The key will come down to the line that they get. The Warriors were able to knock off the Hawks by 10, so one could expect a similar result in Orlando, in the absence of any unforeseen injuries. Stephen Curry is continuing his otherworldly shooting, but that awful defense that doomed Golden State in Portland seems to have vanished, to be replaced by that dominant Warriors unit that has controlled games this season.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Warriors to take care of business against this young, talented squad, winning 120-106.
