Warriors -4 at Clippers (228)
The first look involving teams like Golden State, Indiana and the New York Knicks should be to the over. A recent Warriors-Knicks matchup blasted the projected 234 total, finally winding up an absurd 271. Golden State has won four of its last five games, which warrants the favorite status on the road. After all, the Clippers are a pathetic 13-43 on the season.
Golden State’s last two games have totaled 253 and 250 points. One would think there would be little resistance from the Clippers. However, it may be safer to look at the total rather than the side considering the Warriors are 16 games below .500. The Clippers are 6-21 at Staples Center and have failed to cover the number in each of their last five games. Three of the last four Clippers games have totaled 161, 140 and 152. We’re expecting to see a lot of matador defense here. OVER.
