Spread: Golden State Warriors -13.5
Golden State Warriors have a 37-15 record (23-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won 12 of their last 13 matches and in their last game they won at home against the Lakers with a 115-101 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 29.2 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.3 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.5 ppg, 6 dimes and a team high 7.1 boards per game.
San Antonio Spurs have a 32-23 record (31-23-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Rockets in the 5th place of the West. In their last game they saw a five-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Kings with a 112-127 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by DeMar DeRozan with 21.3 ppg, adding 6.2 boards and a team high 6.2 dimes per game. He is followed by LaMarcus Aldridge with 21.2 ppg and a team high 8.9 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Spurs won at home with a 104-92 score. Warriors have a 19-7 home record, while the Spurs are 10-16 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 118.7 ppg to Spurs’ 112.6, while Spurs are better defensively, allowing 110.4 pgg to Warriors’ 111.6. Warriors have a better field goal percentage (49% to 48%), while Spurs have a better 3-point percentage (40.5% to 38.6%). Warriors are better in boards grabbed (46.5 to 44.5) and in dimes made (29.3 to 24.9), while Spurs are better in turnovers committed (12.2 to 13.7). Warriors are the absolute favorite but Vegas odds give them a -13.5 spread and don’t expect them to beat the odds as the Spurs will definitely force a closer game than that.
