Picks Against The Spread

Spread O/U Points  Result
Golden State Over
-4.5 231.5

Steph Curry never missed a beat coming back from 6 weeks out to drop 28 point in 27 minutes, including 5 from 3-point range. They are different team with Curry in the lineup, able to push the pace of play and spread the floor to an ever greater extent.

There was a combined 196 shot attempts in Game 1 and the Overs look great tonight even at the 231.5 line.

Can’t look past the Warriors tonight at -4.5 with Curry injected back into the lineup and the Splash Brothers reunited.

Over is 25-9 in New Orleans last 34 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 at home against Golden State.

Best Bet  =  Golden State -4.5

Houston @ Utah

Picks against the spread

 Spread O/U Points   Result
 Houston  Over
 -4.0  207.0

With Rubio still sitting for the Jazz with a bad hamstring Utah will need to pull out the same performance that they brought in Game 2, led by Aussie Joe Ingles, the guy that looks like a used-car salesman scoring 27 points with 7 from 3-point range.

The Rockets will have to play smarter tonight after turning down easy paths to the basket, instead opting to dish to shooters beyond the arc, ultimately living and dying by the three. Utah restricting them to 37 shots from three-point range, compared to the 50+ we have seen as of late.

After dropping 116 points against the Rockets in Game 2, we’ll have to take the Overs tonight with the expectation that the Rockets will also break 100.

Over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.

Best Bet = Over 207.0
