Why should you bet on the Warriors?

After their loss to San Antonio over the weekend, the Warriors are now focused on their goal of winning 74 games or more, to set the NBA record. A team like Dallas is one that they should dominate. The Mavericks have a pretty good offense and a fairly soft defense. Their offense will be a little down because Chandler Parsons is probably out for the season. Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams put on a monster effort on Sunday to knock off Portland at home, but I don’t see them having similar success in Golden State’s gym.

Why should you put your money on Dallas?

I wouldn’t bet on Dallas in this game unless I got a line of at least 15 points. The Warriors will be focused on that win total, and they are playing a Mavericks team that simply does not defend well, so this could get to video-game speed fairly quickly. If the over/under total for this game is under 230, I might think about taking the over, because I could see the Warriors getting to 125 or 130 by themselves without a lot of effort, as this game is likely to turn into a track meet and a rout, all at the same time.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Warriors to get off to the races and keep the gas pedal down in this one. I’m picking Golden State to roll, 128-109.
