SC30th 2.0: Can the Curry-Less Warriors Slow Down the Red-Hot Lakers?

UPDATE: Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson has been ruled out for tonight and is expected to miss several games due to a thumb injury. Power forward Draymond Green has also been ruled out with a sore right shoulder.

The Golden State Warriors dropped their first two games without all-star point guard Stephen Curry around and will look to halt that skid on Wednesday at home vs the suddenly surging Los Angeles Lakers. Should bettors start fading the Dubs on the spread as the season winds down? Golden State is 0-6 ATS in its past six contests.

  • The total has gone OVER in the Lakers’ last five games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Warriors are 21-3 SU in their last 24 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The Lakers are 1-5 SU in their last six games with no days off between games.

The Dubs were routed by the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves in the games without Curry, and the team celebrated Curry’s 30th birthday on Monday so hard that head coach Steve Kerr decided to give the guys the day off practice on Tuesday. Regardless, the Warriors are averaging 118.7 points in three wins over the Lakers this season and have won the last six meetings between the teams.

The Lakers are on fire right now with wins in eight of their past 10 after topping the Denver Nuggets 112-103 on Tuesday. Los Angeles has reached the 100-point mark in 22 straight games. Power forward Julius Randle collected 26 points and 13 rebounds while guard Isaiah Thomas scored 23 of his own in the triumph over the Nuggets.

While the Warriors are in stay-away territory as a spread bet, UNDER bettors have been loving them of late. Five of Golden State’s last six games have gone below the closing total.

Handicapping prediction models run by the computers at OddsShark pick a 112-110 result in favor of the Warriors. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NBA matchups here.
