Golden State has won three games in a row by scoring 104 or more points in each contest during that span, including a 104-99 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder as 1.5-point home underdogs Wednesday night. “I’m sure we’re surprising people,” commented Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. He scored a team-high 31 points last time out, while being one of three players in the NBA to average at least 20 points, six assists and four rebounds. Golden State is 3-0 SUATS versus Central division foes this year, with the OVER cashing in each of those affairs.
The Warriors are 12-9 overall on the road this year, including a 6-1 mark versus Eastern Conference opponents. Golden State picked up a 99-91 win in its only meeting against Chicago last year as 6.5-point home underdogs, while the last six games in this series has fallen short of the total, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page. The franchise has won all 12 of its games this year against non-conference foes that are based outside of the state of Florida.
Chicago is playing some of its best basketball of the 2012-13 campaign, as it captured its fifth win in six games by coming away with an 85-82 victory over the Detroit Pistons as 6.5-point home favorites last time out. The Bulls have been playing without star point guard Derrick Rose for the entire season, while forward Luol Deng has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury. Forward Carlos Boozer has picked up the slack, while he also averages 17.6 points and 11.9 rebounds in 21 career games versus the Warriors. Chicago is 6-0 SUATS on Fridays this season, something to consider when making your pro basketball picks.
The Bulls are just two games over .500 (13-11) at home this season, including a losing 4-6 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Chicago has won five of its last eight games versus Golden State, which includes a three-game win streak when playing in front of its own fans. Dating back to last season, the squad is 46-6 when holding opponents below 90 points, which could be a tough task due to tonight’s opponent hitting at least that mark in the last five meetings.
Sports bettors will likely back the Warriors due to the underdog going 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
