The Golden State Warriors opened up their playoff schedule with a soul-crushing win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday. The Dubs will look to go up 2-0 in the series later tonight, but they might do that without Stephen Curry, who’s having some issues with his ankle. That game along with Game 3 of the Washington Capitals vs. Philadelphia Flyers comprise our short list of best games to bet on today.

The Caps, meanwhile, will count on Braden Holtby to weather Philadelphia’s attacks. The Caps are 4-1 in Holtby’s last five starts overall.
Washington (-150) wins, 3-1.
Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors (10:30 PM)
Line: Houston Rockets (+13) vs. Golden State Warriors (-13); total: 218.0 – view all NBA lines
Just like in the regular season, the Warriors used the Rockets to mop the floor during their 104-78 Game 1 victory. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 24 points in that game, but his status for Game 2 is in question after tweaking his ankle on Saturday. With or without Curry, the Warriors remain a favorite in tonight’s matchup with the Rockets.
Houston shot just 35.7 percent from the field and committed 24 turnovers in Game 1. The Rockets are 4-2 ATS in their last six games as underdogs. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last five outings at home.
Golden State (-13) wins, 115-100.
