Golden State-San Antonio o204.5
This total opened up at 209 and has dropped to 204.5. At 204.5 78% of the money is on the over. There was a clear lack of defense played in the first game and the Spurs looked dead from the start. I expect another high scoring game. Realistically it doesn’t have to get out of hand for the over to hit. Golden State has some of the most talented players in the league and San Antonio has guys like Patty Mills and Danny Green that can get hot from three, as well as Lamarcus Aldridge who can put some serious points on the board. Points, points, points!
Golden State -9 (@freekarl3)
The Spurs are coming off a 21-point game one defeat, which makes a spread of 9 points look pretty intriguing for both sides. I’d like to think that Greg Popovich has the best chance of any coach to get his guys ready to defend a loss like that, but without Kawhi Leonard and much youth, it’s clear that this Spurs team doesn’t have much left in the tank. The Warriors made a conscious effort in making sure that someone other than Lamarcus Aldridge beats them. Unfortunately for the Spurs, the next highest scorer after Aldridge is Rudy Gay, who averaged only 11.5 points per game in the regular season. It’s clear that the Spurs just don’t have what it takes on the offensive end to score with the Warriors.
I suggest riding the Warriors ATS in this series until Danny Green grows 4-5 inches, jumps higher, moves quicker, and when Kevin Durant stops being so good.
