Golden State Warriors Betting
The Golden State Warriors are currently trailing the San Antonio Spurs with a record of 31-32. Despite the heroic efforts and MVP-like performance of Steph Curry for the month of April, the rest of the team are not in pace with what their leader is trying to push them. Andrew Wiggins has been good but not great. Kelly Oubre Jr. is very inconsistent and cannot be relied on as far as the end game is concerned while Draymond Green looks like a shell of his former self. James Wiseman has been plagued with injuries and looks like a player not really fit with the Warriors system.
Players to watch: S. Curry PG 55 GP 55 GS 34.1 MIN 31.3 PTS 0.5 OR 5.1 DR 5.5 REB 5.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 3.3 TO 1.9 PF 1.7 AST/TO 26.33 PER
A. Wiggins SF 63 GP 63 GS 33.1 MIN 18.1 PTS 1.1 OR 3.7 DR 4.8 REB 2.4 AST 1 STL 1 BLK 1.8 TO 2.2 PF 1.3 AST/TO 14.77 PER
K. Oubre Jr. SG 55 GP 50 GS 30.7 MIN 15.4 PTS 1.5 OR 4.5 DR 6 REB 1.3 AST 1 STL 0.8 BLK 1.3 TO 2.2 PF 1 AST/TO 13.43 PER.
Houston Rockets Betting
The Houston Rockets fell very hard and they are now the worst team in the entire NBA with their record at 16-47. This team will try to move on and find their next superstar player to surround with starting with the upcoming NBA lottery. John Wall has been out for two years but this was quite a disappointing return for him on a team that is not even trying to win. Christian Wood has been the best thing that happened to the Rockets but he was plagued the entire season. Kelly Olynk made his way to the roster via mid-season trade and has shown a lot of potential that he can play alongside Wood.
Players to Watch: C. Wood C 39 GP 39 GS 32.4 MIN 21.3 PTS 1.9 OR 7.9 DR 9.7 REB 1.7 AST 0.8 STL 1.2 BLK 1.9 TO 2.1 PF 0.9 AST/TO 20.96 PER
J. Wall PG 40 GP 40 GS 32.2 MIN 20.6 PTS 0.4 OR 2.8 DR 3.2 REB 6.9 AST 1.1 STL 0.8 BLK 3.5 TO 1.2 PF 2 AST/TO 15.65 PER
K. Olynyk PF 19 GP 17 GS 31.4 MIN 18.8 PTS 1.5 OR 6.7 DR 8.3 REB 3.1 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 2.5 TO 2.8 PF 1.2 AST/TO 21.53 PER.
