Warriors are the hottest Under Online Betting NBA TrendPosted by: Mike Davis
The Golden State Warriors are the hottest Under online betting NBA sportsbook trend in the league right now. While the Dubs did snap an 11-game under streak against the Spurs on Wednesday, the Warriors have averaged 107 points and allowed 98 points per game through the last 12 games – as compared to their online betting NBA season averages of 115.9 points per game and 104.3 points allowed. Moreover, the fact that even though Golden State is scoring fewer points but also allowing fewer points means that they are just as reliable as a straight-up as ever for fans who like betting on NBA games. The Warriors have won nine games in a row and 11 of their last 15 games

Most fans who try betting on NBA games will no doubt trace this state of affairs back to Kevin Durant’s injury. Golden State’s Over/Under record from the start of the season until Durant’s last game of the season on February 28th was 26-34. KD was ruled out indefinitely on March 1st. The Dubs have gone 2-13 O/U between March 2nd and March 29th. All things considered, as NBA online betting trends go, the Warriors always leaned more toward the under, but even more so since losing Durant’s 25.3 points per game. If we take into account that Stephen Curry’s 25 points per game in March is on par with his overall season output, then the Kevin Durant theory gains even more credence.
NBA betting information claims that the Warriors look better without KD, and most Golden State fans who bet on NBA basketball will surely agree with that assessment. After all, it’s not like they even really needed Kevin Durant in the first place. Signing him was more than a likely a knee-jerk reaction to blowing a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA finals and eventually losing them to the Cleveland Cavaliers. If it had been the other way around and Cleveland had lost, what would have been the NBA online betting odds of the Cavs going after James Harden or Russell Westbrook? Heck, the Cavaliers probably did need reinforcements even as they entered this season as the champions, and they certainly didn’t set the free agency market on fire during the offseason. Back to the Warriors, Andre Iguodala has played more minutes and performer more efficiently across the board since Durant was sidelined with a sprained MCL, and his defensive skills alone have been enough to make him a top-20 player in the league in the past 30 days.
