Following the game two catastrophe of blowing a 31-point home court lead in 135-131 loss Golden State had a gut check. Indeed, the Warriors have had the look of a team that has coasted for most of the season. Poor results and value for NBA games betting odds has been a perpetual problem going back to last year. With two consecutive NBA titles and three in the last four years complacency is Golden State’s biggest rival. Overall that game two defeat to the Clippers may prove decisive. The question is if it was shock treatment or a warning.

Clippers vs. Warriors TV Coverage: TNT
Golden State Warriors
Golden State has taken a 3-1 series lead over the Clippers and can clinch the series with a win in game five. Despite their straight up success, the Warriors have covered only two of the four games. Increasingly Golden State struggles to bring any real betting value to the board. If the Clippers can score the upset in this one, they will host game six on Friday night.
Warriors on Court
So far in the playoffs it’s been Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry leading the Warriors. Durant is averaging 28.8 points per game. Meanwhile Curry is pumping in 25.0 points per game. Additionally, he is averaging 7.8 rebounds per outing in post season. By contrast Lou Williams is leading the Clippers with 22.3 points and 7.3 assists per matchup. Namely the tandem of Curry and Durant makes for a nearly unbeatable combination in the long run.
Stats to Consider
Late on the Clippers have been a solid NBA games betting value as a road dog. LA has lost only two of their last seven games getting points on the road. Five of their last seven as an away pup stayed under the total. In the same way Golden State has shown improved betting value as a home chalk recently. In their last six games laying points at ORACLE Arena the Warriors have paid four times. Also, four of those six games went under the total.
Team vs. Team
Los Angeles has had the recent online sportsbook value advantage in this series with the Warriors. For example, the Clippers have covered the spread in six of their last 10 with Golden State. Three of the last five between these teams went under the total. And at ORACLE Arena the Clippers have carried the betting edge. LA has come away with the cash in five of their last seven visits to Golden State. Two of the last three in this matchup at ORACLE Arena went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
At the onset of this series there were not many gamblers that gave the Clippers a chance. Yet despite their 1-3 straight up deficit LA has covered two of the NBA games betting odds. For this reason, stepping out on the Warriors is not likely wise due to their never-ending woes at covering the spread. As mentioned earlier LA consistently gets the money at ORACLE Arena.
