76ers at Warriors picks and predictions
Warriors 120, 76ers 110
Golden State (-210) should beat the 76ers, especially if Philadelphia is shorthanded. However, there is no need to risk more than double your potential profit on the moneyline when the Warriors should win by margin. Bet the spread and/or total instead.
LEAN WARRIORS -5.5 (-108).
Golden State seems to be ramping up for another deep postseason run after finally winning consecutive road games. The Warriors have played up to the level of their competition lately and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. teams with a winning record. With all the questions surrounding Philadelphia’s health, Golden State appears to be the safer bet at this number.
BET UNDER 234.5 (-108).
While Golden State has struggled on the road this season, it has played well defensively at home and the Under has gone 5-1-1 in the Warriors’ last 7 games at Chase Center. The Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these teams in the Bay Area and Friday’s matchup should stay the Under the total, especially if Embiid and Harden sit.
