The Golden State Warriors are in the midst of another slide and are starting to move further down the standings at the top of the Western Conference. Can they muster up the skills to beat the lowly Orlando Magic tonight on the road?

Let’s take a look at some prop odds for this showdown, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

3 Best Prop Bets for Warriors vs. Magic

  • Cole Anthony 20+ Points + Assists (-141)
  • Wendell Carter Jr. OVER 16.5 Points (-115)
  • Klay Thompson OVER 22.5 Points (-115)

Cole Anthony 20+ Points + Assists (-141)

Anthony is coming off a pretty awful game against the Thunder where he posted just six points. He did manage seven dimes but his scoring numbers in his last two games have been off. Instead of using this as a reason to fade Anthony, I’m going to bet on a bounce back from the young point guard. His assist totals average has been there all year and Anthony ranks 22nd in the league. Ultimately, he needs to regain his scoring stroke, so what better team to do so against than a Warriors roster that has struggled? 

Wendell Carter Jr. OVER 16.5 Points (-115)

While Carter’s season average in scoring is 15 points per game, he discovered another gear in March. In his last seven games, Carter is averaging 19.6 points per game and is coming off a 30 point performance against the Thunder. He is one of the few bright spots on this team right now and has a decent matchup against the Warriors tonight.

It will be the first time this year that Carter faces the Warriors but I think he keeps his hot hand going tonight. 

Klay Thompson OVER 22.5 Points (-115)

The Warriors continue to suffer injury woes with Stephen Curry out for at least the next few weeks with a sprained foot ligament. This leaves Golden State with a lack of perimeter scoring and Thompson is left to pick up the slack.

While he hasn't been doing a great job so far, I do think he can turn it around tonight. He went 1-for-11 last week against the Celtics from downtown and will have to do a lot better moving forward. Luckily, the Magic are trash, and their defense is horrible. They rank 27th in perimeter defense and Thompson should feast.
