Injury-Plagued Warriors are in Rare Territory as Big Underdogs

Draymond Green Golden State Warriors

It’s normally must-see television when the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs collide, but Monday’s meeting between the Western Conference clubs in the Lone Star State is short on star power due to injuries. The OVER is trending in this series, as six of the last eight matchups between the Spurs and Dubs have gone above the closing total.

MyBookie opened the Warriors as 7-point road underdogs with a total of 206.

  • The Warriors are 21-8 SU in their last 29 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Spurs are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games after a win.
  • The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Spurs.

Golden State is operating without all-stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant right now, so the pressure is resting squarely on Draymond Green’s shoulders. Green is receiving some help from point guard Quinn Cook, as the 24-year-old posted a season high with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting in Saturday’s 124-109 triumph over Phoenix. Cook is averaging 26.5 points on 21-of-30 shooting over the past two contests.

The Spurs are playing without small forward Kawhi Leonard, although his return is reportedly going to come soon. San Antonio is locked in a four-way tie for fifth place in the West, two games ahead of the ninth-place Clippers. LaMarcus Aldridge is doing his best to keep the team in playoff contention, evidenced by the veteran averaging 29.3 points during the Spurs’ three-game winning streak. Aldridge posted 39 points on 14-of-22 shooting and 10 boards in Saturday’s 117-101 triumph over the Timberwolves.

Golden State has claimed each of the three meetings between the squads this season, including a 112-92 win at AT&T Center on November 2. Betting on the Warriors with one day off between games has been a questionable endeavor of late. In Golden State’s previous five with one day off between games, the team is 0-5 ATS.
