Betting on the Golden State Warriors (+1)
Regular Season Record: 53-29
The Warriors are virtually in the 2022 NBA Finals. No NBA team has ever wasted a 3-0 lead in the playoffs, and with the way the Warriors are playing, it’s just a matter of which game in this matchup they’d clinch the ticket to the Finals. In Game 3, the Warriors got 31 points from Stephen Curry and 27 more from Andrew Wiggins, who’s been so steady in the series. Curry leads the Warriors this series with 28.0 points per game, while Wiggins is behind him with 20.7. There’s just been barely anything Dallas is doing to slow down Golden State, which is shooting 53.1 percent from the field in the series. It’s not the most surprising thing in the world if the Warriors blow out a seemingly demoralized Dallas squad in Game 4.
The Warriors are 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 games overall.
Betting on the Dallas Mavericks (-1)
Regular Season Record: 52-30
The Mavs love to shoot threes so it makes sense that they lost Game 3 because they shot just 13/45 for 28.9 percent from behind the arc. Luka Doncic scored 40 points on 11/23 shooting but the Mavs were -19 with him on the floor, highlighting a defensive problem not just for him but for the team. Reggie Bullock ghosted the Mavs with a 0/10 shooting for a zero-point night despite logging in 40 minutes of action. Maxi Kleber also laid an egg in 25 minutes, shooting 0/5. One encouraging sign for the Mavs from Game 3 was the play of Spencer Dinwiddie, who came off the bench and scored 26 points. His aggressive mentality has to stay – and rub off on the Mavs, who are averaging 101.3 in the second round.
The Mavericks are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 home games.
The Warriors win, 111-105.
