Dallas Mavericks at Golden State Warriors (-6.5, 215.5)
Game 5: Warriors lead 3-1
Through four games in the series the Golden State Warriors are 3-1 SU and ATS and they’ve outscored the Dallas Mavericks by 10.9 points per 100 possessions in non-garbage time minutes. Coming back home with a spot in the NBA Finals on the line it would stand to reason that is the Warriors are in a great “spot” tonight, and the market seems to support that theory as most of the bets and handle is laying the points with Golden State. However, I think we really must look at how this series has played out, because a deeper look would show that Dallas has played much better than the results would indicate.
