Betting on the Golden State Warriors (odds)
Regular Season Record: 26-28
Stephen Curry played like he’s not from this planet in Monday’s 116-107 Warriors home win over the Denver Nuggets. Curry exploded for 53 points on 14-24 shooting from the field and 10-18 from behind the arc. That was a win against a legitimate title contender, showing that the Warriors can beat anyone if Curry plays like that. The Warriors will only go as far as where Curry takes them and it’s probably not going to take that kind of insane performance from the two-time MVP for Golden State to beat a team like the Thunder, who are headed to the lottery. Over the last five games, Curry has averaged 40.2 points on 56.1 percent shooting from the field and 46.3 percent from deep. The Warriors could take on the Thunder minus Kelly Oubre Jr., who didn’t play against the Nuggets due to a wrist injury.
The Warriors, who are scoring 112.3 points per game, are 3-1 against the spread in their last four contests.
Betting on the Oklahoma City Thunder (odds)
Regular Season Record: 20-33
The Thunder are on a freefall, having lost all of their past six games. They have also won just once over their last 10 games. The Thunder will look to break their skid when they face the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City this Tuesday before traveling back home to host the Warriors. The Thunder are not contending for a playoff spot. They are also playing right now without their best player in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is still out with a right foot plantar fasciitis. In their last game, the Thunder lost to the Philadelphia 76ers at home, 117-93. Oklahoma City was led by Darius Bazley (17 points) and Tony Bradley (16 points). Bazley’s return is a plus for the Thunder who had not seen Bazley play prior to the Philly game in over a month due to a shoulder issue.
The over is 7-3 in the Thunder’s last 10 games as the home team.
The Warriors win, 119-110.
