Golden State Warriors vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
The Brooklyn Nets would have opened as double digits NBA spread favorites against the Golden State Warriors if only Kyrie Irving is available to play. Instead, the Nets would have to play again without their superstar point guard. As for the Warriors, D’Angelo Russell could suit up Wednesday night, though the possibility that this could be his last game in a Dub uniform is looming large.
Moneyline: Bet on the Nets at -400. Brooklyn is missing Kyrie’s service but they have Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris Levert to shoulder the offense.
ATS: Back the Warriors to cover the 5.5-point spread. The Warriors are solid road team against the spread at 14-13 this season. D’Angelo Russel, if he plays, has the ability to keep Golden State within striking distance down the stretch, especially with the Nets missing Irving’s firepower.
TOTALs: Back the OVER at 225 points. I can see an entertaining offensive team with little defenses. Watch out for Russell vs. Dinwiddie duel.
Score Prediction: 119 – 115 Nets
