Draymond Green Out for Pacers - Line Down to Warriors -7

So while Pacers injured star Victor Oladipo appears to be worth 8 points, the Warriors Draymond Green is worth a mere 1 to 2 points, at least in the eyes of oddsmakers.


The line on the Warriors-Pacers game has dropped from -8 to -7 over the last hour following news that Green will be rested for Monday night's game.

Gambling911.com had already given the Pacers a 60% edge to cover the +9 spread that was still available earlier in the morning. 

Green has dealt with nagging injuries throughout the season, missing 14 of 16 games in November/December.

The Warriors are concluding a grueling East Coast road trip.

Earlier in the day Gambling911.com had calcuated that the Pacers would be a mere +1.5 home dog assuming the presence of Oladipo.  The Sagarin Ratings, relied on in determining early lines, have not fully adjusted calculations to include Oladipo's absence as he has only been out for two games.  The Pacers have gone 1-1 since that time.  

The fact that Golden State has decided to rest Green for this final game of the East Coast swing could provide a glimpse of the Warriors mentality playing against a team that somehow managed to manhandle them in both of last season's games.  The Warriors are also coming off a tough victory in Boston.
