Bookie vs. Bettor - Pelicans vs. Warriors Game 1 NBA Playoffs Odds

Written by:
Published on:

The New Orleans Pelicans were seeing 70% of the betting action come their way as a +9 underdog at Golden State for this Game 1 of the second round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.

The books were doing everything they can to get even more action on New Orleans Saturday night, even pushing the line to -9.5 after opening at -7.5.

The NBA Betting Power Ratings indicate that opening line was correct.

Golden State has dominated in this series with the exception of the last meeting, where the Pelicans walked off with a win.  The Warriors have a score to settle here

Indeed, using the 9-point spread, the Warriors have covered that number in six of their last nine wins against New Orleans.

That should happen again late Saturday.  GO WITH THE WARRIORS -9 HERE

We do hope to improve on our 9-2-1 NBA record this evening (82.8%).
