3 Best Prop Bets for Warriors vs Magic on Nov. 3 (Wiggins' History Against Orlando Pays Off)
The 2022-23 NBA season is in full swing with another pair of matchups set for action on Thursday, Nov. 3. One of those two battles features the Golden State Warriors (3-5) facing the Orlando Magic (1-7) in an inter-conference showdown.
Here are three of the best prop bets for this Warriors-Magic game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds.
Warriors vs Magic Player Props
1. Andrew Wiggins - Points: Over 16.5 (-118)
Andrew Wiggins has been one of the Warriors' more consistent players this season. The 27-year-old veteran is averaging 17.8 points while shooting 46.2% from the floor and now has a promising matchup with the Magic. Orlando is just one of those teams that Wiggins loves playing against, averaging 20.4 points in 14 all-time matchups — his seventh-best scoring average against any team. Not only has Wiggins also hit the over on this prop in nine of those outings, but he's also done so in five of his eight games this season. Taking that all into account, it'd be shocking if Wiggins doesn't finish with 17-plus points.
2. Wendell Carter Jr. - Rebounds: Over 9.5 (-115)
Wendell Carter Jr. set a career-high with 10.5 rebounds per game last season and is on track for a similar performance, averaging 9.5 boards through eight games. He's recorded double-digit rebounding totals in half his games thus far, including a 12-rebound performance two nights ago. Carter also excels in the paint whenever matched up against the Warriors, averaging a solid 11.3 rebounds in the last four meetings. Fortunately, for the former Duke Blue Devil, Golden State has the seventh-worst rebounding defense on the road, giving up 57.5 boards per contest. After hitting the over in three of his last four games against the Dubs, Carter should have another strong night on the glass.
3. Klay Thompson - Threes Made: Under 3.5 (-162)
Klay Thompson has been hit-or-miss this season as far as his three-pointing shooting is concerned. Though he's made four-plus threes in three of his seven outings, he finished with two or fewer in each of the other four games. Thompson is also making just 2.6 threes per game (lowest average since 2012-13) on a career-low 29.5% success rate. Though the Magic have struggled to win games, they've given up an average of 10.7 threes over their last three games (ninth-best) and have allowed opponents to convert on just 33.8% of shots beyond the arc this season (11th-best). With how unpredictable Thompson's performances have been this season, the under is the much safer bet.
