If you’ve been betting the Warriors blindly for the better part of the season, you’re a rich man. The odds makers can’t make this line high enough because Golden State just continues to cover. They shouldn’t have any trouble covering by double digits here, especially coming off of a loss.
Golden State lost to the Bulls in overtime on Tuesday. Any contentment or “boredom” of winning should now be erased and we’ll look for the classic blow out performance from this team vs. inferior competition. The Warriors have an advantage at the guard position wherever they go, but they have a big one tonight. The “splash brothers” are going to have monster games and run the Jazz right out of their own gym.
I mention the guard play because the Jazz backcourt was torched in their most recent loss to the Clippers. Utah has now lost 7 of 10 overall and this loss would be 3 in a row. Salt Lake City has been thought of for so many years as a tough place to go on the road but Utah is just 8-14 at home this season. Golden State has beaten the Jazz 6 straight times and with a red hot Klay Thompson (37.7ppg last 3) they’ll blow them out again tonight. Take the Warriors.
