Warriors are a Hot Bet With No Rest

What can’t be said about the Warriors that’s already been said? Well, for starters, they’re a blazing hot bet in the second game of back-to-backs, going 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games with no days off between games. Tonight they’ll travel to Phoenix to take on the lowly Phoenix Suns who they’ve already destroyed twice this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Suns.
  • The Suns are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against the Western Conference.
  • The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on the road.

The Warriors opened as 16-point favorites for the game, which is one area that they haven’t excelled at this season, going 3-5 ATS as favorites of 16-points or more. Tonight could be an opportunity to reverse the trend, however, as the Warriors have wins of 25 and 19 over the Suns this season.

High totals are the norm in Warriors games, and tonight is no different, with an opening total of 220 points. The teams combined to score 231 and 251 points in their previous games against each other this season, easily topping the total in both games.

The Warriors have already gone OVER in games with totals of 229 and 227 this month, and as we pointed out yesterday, Golden State is a hot OVER play against teams who rank 20th or worse at defending three pointers, now going 19-4 O/U in that situation. The Suns rank 29th in the association in three-point defense.
