San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Betting Odds for Game 5Posted by: Charlie Smith
The Golden State Warriors are, unsurprisingly, set to close the door on the 1st round of the 2018 NBA playoffs this Tuesday night. Despite the fact that they’re without Stephen Curry, Golden State has built up a 3-1 lead in the San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors series. Let’s take a look at what the evening’s NBA betting odds are predicting before going over some NBA parlay picks.
San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors – Tuesday, April 23rd
Series: Game 5 || Warriors Lead 3-1
When: 9:30 pm ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California
Stream: Drama on TNT, NBA League Pass
NBA Betting Odds:
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have had a rough go in this series. After opening play up by losing the first three games, San Antonio managed to bounce back in Game 4 103-90. It was a little unprecedented, since San Antonio hadn’t managed to contain the Warriors offense all season long. However, there’s no real reason to expect San Antonio to pull through once again this evening. For starters, the Spurs will have to play on the road. Secondly, the Warriors will be looking to avenge their loss in Game 4. Moreover, the NBA betting odds make it very clear San Antonio doesn’t stand a chance this evening.
Players to Watch: LaMarcus Aldridge (22.0 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 2.0 apg), Rudy Gay (13.0 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 2.3 apg), and Patty Mills (12.3 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 3.3 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors may have had to compete without Curry in these postseason matchups. But nevertheless, Golden State hasn’t had much trouble coming out on top. I guess that’s the benefit of wielding the most talented roster in the league. Playing on home court, the Warriors stand a great chance of closing out this postseasons series this evening. Kevin Durant went off in Game 4 finishing the night with 34-points. That wasn’t enough to beat San Antonio so Thompson and Green will have to step up their game tonight.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (29.0 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 5.3 apg), Klay Thompson (22.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Draymond Green (10.0 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 8.3 apg).
