NBA Betting Online Odds:
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter this Western Conference matchup sporting a 31-14 record that ranks them No. 1 in the Pacific Division. And in the Western Conference, that record is enough to reign supreme as well. However, Golden State cannot afford any slip ups as the Denver Nuggets are but a ½ game behind the Warriors. Fortunately for Golden State, they’re matched up against the struggling Clippers this Friday evening. The NBA betting online odds are pegging Golden State as a heavy favorite on the road, which is to be expected since the Warriors are 8-2 in their last 10 versus the Clippers.
Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that the Warriors have a big edge over LA. Right now the club ranks No. 1 in scoring and 22nd in points allowed. For comparison, the Clippers rank 5th in scoring and 25th in points allowed. Tonight’s contest might turn into a bit of a shootout but the Warriors will come out on top either way.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.8 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.4 apg), Kevin Durant (28.2 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 6.0 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.8 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.0 apg).
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers step into this Western Conference contest flashing a 24-20 record that ranks them 2nd in the Pacific Division. But in the Western Conference, Los Angeles currently ranks 7th overall. With that in mind, it’s clear that the franchise really needs to turn things around. Facing the best team in the conference, it’s clear that the Clippers will fail to deliver that turnaround this Friday night. Instead, bettors should bank on their demise.
Players to Watch: Tobias Harris (20.7 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.3 apg), Danilo Gallinari (19.4 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 2.6 apg), and Lou Williams (18.7 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 4.9 apg).
