It is the first game of a critical five-game road trip for the Nets. Basketball betting trends are definitely in favor of the Nets in this game. Bet on basketball trends show that New Jersey has won six of the last ten games against Golden State and they are 8-2 against the basketball odds. At Golden State, the Warriors have won three of the last five meetings against the Nets as bet on basketball statistics indicate. Almost every time the teams play in Oakland the games are very close.
The margin of victory in the last five meetings between the two teams at Golden State is 2, 1, 3, 14 and 4 as basketball betting stats show. The teams met earlier this season in New Jersey and the Warriors won by a score of 105-97 as the bet on basketball results indicate.
Whether or not New Jersey stays in the playoff race could be determined on this road trip. The good news for the Nets is that they have played well on the road this season. They also have a very good record against the basketball odds on the road. Devin Harris has led the team in scoring for most of the season as bet on basketball stats indicate. He gets help from Vince Carter and Brook Lopez as basketball betting statistics tell us. The Nets have an interesting young roster full of players who continue to make progress this season.
The Warriors have been a big home/road dichotomy this season in terms of basketball betting. They are very solid at home versus the bet on basketball number but poor on the road. The problem for gamblers who bet on basketball and take the Warriors is that you never can tell which team or which players will show up. Head coach Don Nelson has done his best to ruin the team and has even started to rest starters. The Warriors can score as they rank 2nd in the NBA in scoring as bet on basketball stats indicate but they are horrible defensively as the bet on basketball numbers show.
The over/under is 5-5 versus the bet on basketball number in the last ten games between the two teams.
