Betting on the Warriors vs Spurs Western Conference Bout

Posted by Daniel Strum on March 18, 2016 in

When you are heading into the final few weeks of the season and the top 2 seeds in the conference have already essentially been decided, you would think that there is really nothing left to play for other than padding some stats. That is absolutely not the case with the two best teams in the Western Conference, as both are chasing their own personal records, both of which would be astonishing if they were achieved. As we have mentioned countless times here before, the Golden State Warriors still have a shot at setting the best regular season record ever, while the San Antonio Spurs are trying to get through the entire season without taking a loss at home. One of those records is going to take a hit on Saturday night when the Warriors head into San Antonio to face the Spurs. This has all the makings of an instant  pro hoops odds classic, and we suggest that you get your wagers on at to make this game even more exciting than it already is.

Why bet on the Golden State Warriors

The Warriors (61-6) are on a 6-game winning streak that could well turn into 7 after they head into Dallas on Friday night. The only way that they will make it to 7 is if they have all their attention on the Mavericks as opposed to looking ahead to this game. Golden State can only have 3 more loses the rest of the way if they are to beat the best NBA regular season mark set by the Chicago Bulls, and with 2 games left against the Spurs, that could be a tough ask. That said, Golden State destroyed the Spurs 120-90 when they hooked up earlier this season, although that game was played in Oakland. Golden State are averaging 115.7 PPG, and are giving up 104.3 PPG.

Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs

There were a lot of less than pleased people on the Spurs (58-10) playing and coaching staff after their humiliating defeat to the Warriors last time out. San Antonio will be looking to exact some revenge, and you have to feel that they have a good shot at doing so in their own building. The Spurs remain unbeaten at home this season, and are in a seriously good run of form right now, having only dropped 1 game in their last 15. The Spurs certainly have the defense to frustrate the Warriors potent attack, but they are going to have to step up a whole lot better than they did the last time out. The Spurs are averaging 104.8 PPG, and are giving up 92.5 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

What we have here is the best offensive unit in the league going up against the best defense. The Warriors can shoot the lights out, and the Spurs can shut the best teams in the league down. At the end of the day, though, I think it is offense that will win, but by the very slimmest of margins.
