Betting Analysis

Pick: Warriors -1.5 Series Spread (-165 at DraftKings)

Put up or shut up time. The Warriors have spent six months telling us they are not a threat, and the Kings have spent six months telling us they are more serious than we have given them credit for. So now, the moment is here.

The Warriors are one of the worst road teams we’ve ever seen in the postseason. There have been 19 teams including Golden State to lose at least 30 road games and make the playoffs. Of those previous 18, 17 were eliminated in the first round. The 18th, the Phoenix Suns in 1984, made the conference finals.

The Kings, conversely, have been great on the road, the only team with a winning record on the road in the West. They are 29th in defense at home but 8th in defense on the road. They have an elite offense, and Golden State’s defense has been middling (15th) all season.

In the regular season, the Warriors starters won their minutes convincingly against the Kings. The bench lost horribly, as has been the case for the majority of this season.

Of course, starters play more in the postseason.

So we have the resume of a serious team (the Kings) and a lightweight (the Warriors) in the regular season, and the historic resume of an also-ran (the Kings) and a heavyweight (the Warriors) for the playoffs.

The Warriors’ experience edge is massive here. When the Kings’ defense is bad, it’s terrible. That’s a problem when chasing the best offball player and maybe best offensive player since Jordan in Steph Curry.

The Kings will be amped for their first playoff appearance in 17 years, but that can be a double-edged sword. It provides nerves and tension. The Warriors will be loose. If they win Game 1, this can get downhill on the Kings quickly.

There are only so many adjustments the Kings can make.

Golden State -1.5 on the series spread line (-165 at DraftKings) is the best value.

Pick: Warriors -1.5 Series Spread (-165 at DraftKings)
