Score: 116 - 121
Point Spread: -10½/-110 Golden State
Western Conference - Semifinals - Best of 7 - Game 2 - GSW Leads 1-0
The Warriors when at or near full strength remain the worlds most explosive basketball team. Many people doubted them during the season, but its looks very much like they were wrong, as the Dubs were just conserving their energy for the play offs. Now its full steam ahead, and all comers are in trouble including tonight's opponent the Pelicans. In game one the Warriors superiority and dominance was obvious in a 123-101 DD victory and I'm betting on more of the same over powering hoops from the defending champs tonight. GOLDEN STATE is 19-8 ATS off a home blowout win by 20 points or more dating back to last season with the average margin of victory coming by almost 14 ppg.
The Warriors are 15-0 ATS/SU covering by an average of 13.47 ppg as a well-rested home favorite off a 10+ home win in which they had at least a 10 percent higher Basket assist % than their opponent with the average SU margin of victory coming by a whopping 22 points , and over the L/3 years the Dubs are 11-0 SU/ATS under the same perimeters winning by an average of 25.63 ppg, with only one game decided by 12 points or less, and the other 10 by huge hefty DD margins.
NBA Road underdogs (NEW ORLEANS) - good offensive team - scoring 99+ points/game on the season against opponent after leading their last 2 games by 10+ points at the half are just 59-99 ATS L/5 seasons for a 63% conversion rate for bettors on the blind.
