The Golden State Warriors travel to Orlando Friday to take on the Magic and Jeff Alexander says that Orlando will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Magic –7.5.

Boyd writes: Orlando has just about everything going in its favor here. It is red hot, well rested, on its home floor, and facing a team which will not be fresh after playing last night. The Magic have won 8 of their last 10 games SU and ATS. They are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games against Golden State. Orlando is 20-10 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season, 18-7 ATS in Saturday games over the last 2 seasons, 11-2 ATS in home games after a division game over the last 2 seasons, and 24-7 ATS after one or more consecutive overs this season. The Warriors do not have the beef to contend with Dwight Howard down low. We'll lay the points.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 1,006 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 71% of bettors like the Warriors +7.5. Accuscore disagrees with the public and has the Magic as a 73% favorite.
