Spurs vs. Warriors, 10 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Warriors -10
As you can probably guess, the Spurs have not been good at covering spreads as underdogs. They are 4-10 ATS in that spot this season, and that’s largely due to their lack of defense. The Warriors have been unable to get going at home this year but this feels like an excellent spot for them to bounce back from a loss to the Suns Wednesday. Take Golden State to register an emphatic win Friday evening.
Over/Under: Over 234.5
The Spurs rank 26th in points per game, but have still gone over their totals 11 times in 15 games. That’s how bad they’ve been defensively. The Warriors are 9-7 to the over this season and are 13th in points per game. At home, Golden State’s efficiency hasn’t been as good. The Warriors rank 29th in field goal percentage at home as opposed to 11th in field goal percentage on the road. Even with this surprising split, look for Golden State to get right offensively against San Antonio’s porous defense. Take the over on this number.
