On February 20, "Golden State" is going to visit "Orlando" to measure their strength and fight for victory, and we have prepared a prediction for this match. Should we expect the "Warriors" to win?

Orlando Magic

The "Magicians" are trying to get away from the relegation zone, but with the current squad, it is difficult to demonstrate a stable game. The team is forced to play without one of the leaders Aaron Gordon, who will miss another two weeks because of the injury.

"Orlando" made a good impression in the last meeting against "New York" as they won a victory (107-89). Terrence Ross’s successful play and Nikola Vucevic’s double-double became the main reason for the successful performance. Steve Clifford's wards are capable of more, but many players are in the infirmary.

"Magic" strives to return at least to the Top-10, but again the competition is sky-high even in the Eastern Conference, so each game reminds of a real challenge.

Golden State Warriors

The "Warriors" are just trying to get the most out of their capabilities in almost every match and that fighting spirit really works. The team has already climbed up to the seventh line and that is definitely not the end.

"Golden State" was close to defeat in the previous match against "Miami", but when the game was transferred to overtime, Steve Kerr's guys seemed to be reborn (120-112). Stephen Curry together with Kent Bazemore looked great in attack and they scored 51 points in total. 

Now the "Warriors" need to consolidate their positions, and the match against "Orlando" is a good opportunity for this. In short, it is extremely important for the team not to slow down now.

All predictions for Basketball


  • "Golden State" won three times in their last five personal matches.
  • On account of "Orlando" are six home victories.
  • Since the start of the season, the "Warriors" achieved five away wins.

Our Prediction

"Orlando" showed character in their last match against the "Knicks", but such wins are rare this season. The team really does not have enough high-class players, and when the opponent blocks Nikola Vucevic, problems immediately begin.

The "Warriors" are attacking with all their might and this tactic brings good results. Steve Kerr's guys climbed to the seventh line, and this is without Klay Thompson. "Golden State" gained a good pace and is ready to aim for victory. In our opinion, Stephen Curry and the team will take advantage of the rival's problems.

Our prediction is the victory of the "Golden State Warriors", taking into account OT with odds of 1.58 on 1xbet.
