I was wondering which of these air resistance or magnus affect plays a role in the distance travelled by a ball more for a top spinning ball

my thoughts would be that with both these effects the distance of the ball would travel less

Please answer my question to satisfy my curiosity :D

the Magnus effect is a consequence of air resistance... I don't see how you want to compare them. Magnus effect occurs for spinning objects.
