Will Golden State close it out in Game 4 or can Portland extend the series? Our experts weigh in.
Betting Trends to Know
Monday night will be the ninth potential sweep opportunity for the Warriors under Steve Kerr. The Warriors are 5-3 straight up and against the spread in those games, but their spread of -3.5 is the lowest of any of those previous eight road games. — Evan Abrams
The Warriors enter Game 4 in Portland with a chance to sweep the Blazers. Golden State has won five consecutive games entering this potential sweep opportunity after closing out the Rockets in six games in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Since 2005, teams that are on at least a five-game winning streak entering Game 4 with an opportunity to sweep are 26-11 SU and 20-15-2 ATS. The Warriors have been in this spot six times and are 4-2 SU and ATS, with their two losses coming against the Cavaliers and Rockets. — Abrams
Remember the very profitable first-half trend on the Blazers in Game 3? Well, that angle disappears when teams go down 0-3 at home in Game 4. Those teams are 29-25-1 (53.7%) against the first-half spread. Compare that to the 79-38-1 (67.5%) record in Game 3s when teams are down just 0-2.
The one first-half trend going in the Blazers’ favor? In the regular season and playoffs under Terry Stotts, Portland is 43-28-1 (60.6%) against the first-half spread at home after losing at home in its previous game. Stotts is the second-most profitable coach in the Bet Labs database in this spot behind just George Karl. –– Abrams
The Blazers blew a 13-point halftime lead in Game 3 and are now down 0-3 to the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. What should bettors expect from Portland on the verge of being swept? Since 2005, teams down 0-3 have gone 21-41 SU and 25-34-3 ATS in Game 4. — John Ewing
Locky: How I’m Betting Game 4
Well, the good news is I was right about Golden State in Game 3, but the bad news is this entire round of the playoffs might be a huge dud. As it turns out, the Warriors and Bucks are, as the market indicated, better than their opponents.
