The Golden State Warriors will continue their road trip through the Sunshine State when they take on the Orlando Magic, and I've searched through the NBA odds to find you the best bet for this matchup.

This game will feature one of the hottest teams in the NBA and a Golden State team desperate for a win. 

With the Dubs needing to make a push for the playoffs and on the second night of a back-to-back, find out which bench player I'm targeting in my free NBA picks for the Warriors vs. Magic on March 27.

Warriors vs Magic predictions

My best bet: Trayce Jackson-Davis Over 1.5 assists (+120 at bet365)

The Golden State Warriors turned their season around when they moved Draymond Green to center so they could run their small-ball lineup. While this works against many teams in the NBA, the Orlando Magic aren't one of them. 

The Magic have positional size almost everywhere and sometimes even field a lineup where four players on the court are 6-foot-10, while Green stands at 6-foot-6. This is a game Golden State will need Trayce Jackson-Davis.

The Warriors are on the second night of a back-to-back and have one of the oldest rosters in the NBA, but Jackson-Davis missed last night's game against the Heat due to right knee soreness so he'll be ready for extended minutes.

Jackson-Davis is an extremely underrated passer and has shown impressive vision this season, especially as a center. When he gets the ball in the lane, he should be looking for his cutters or shooters against the tough interior defense of the Magic.

Jackson-Davis is projected to have two assists meaning we can price Over 1.5 at -133, giving bet365's number of +120 amazing value.

Andrew Wiggins Over 1.5 made threes

Wiggins Over 1.5 assists

I usually build my SGP around my best bet, but Jackson-Davis has been taken off the board since Golden State released its injury report that includes Kuminga while I was in the middle of writing. I'm leaving Jackson-Davis as the best bet because it's by far my favorite play for this game, and I'm assuming his prop should eventually be added back to the board.

If Jackson-Davis never returns to the board, and you cant bet on his assists, my second favorite bet is Klay Thompson Over 3.5 threes made. Make no mistake about it, this is an audition for Thompson, and I'm sure he knows it. Thompson is a free agent this summer, and the Magic desperately need a 3-point shooter: they have already been linked to Thompson throughout this season.

I'm pairing Thompson with Wiggins because if Kuminga and Jackson-Davis are both out, Wiggins should be in for heavy minutes against the Magic. If Jackson-Davis' props do get put back on the board, pair the Over with his assists prop and the Over for his rebounds prop with Thompson to make 4+ threes.
