Golden State’s Record Against the Spread

The Golden State Warriors may have the best record in the NBA, but that hasn’t translated to wins against the spread.

In fact, Golden State is one of the worst teams to bet on to cover the spread. As of Jan. 11, 2017, Golden State is 15-23-1 ATS. The Warriors are 8-12 ATS at home. They are 7-11-1 ATS on the road.

Why is Golden State so bad against the spread? Check out some reasons:

Golden State is always favored – No team can cover every spread in every game. It doesn’t matter if the Warriors play at home or on the road.

Because they average over 117 points per game, they’re always going to be favored. Unless coach Steve Kerr sits Kevin Durant and Steph Curry in the same game, for the entire game, and lets everybody know, the Warriors will be favored.

Pay per head agents should be aware of that.

Golden State gets huge leads before the 4th quarter – The Warriors can get such massive leads before the 4th quarter that Kerr has the luxury of sitting his starting 5, or playing 4 guys with Draymond Green or Kyle Thompson, for the entire final quarter.

In some games, this leads to opponents outscoring the Warriors in the final quarter just enough to beat them against the spread.

Golden State garners double-digit favoritism in games – As of January 11, Golden State has lost 6 games in a row against the spread. The Warriors were double-digit favorites in every single one of those games.

They were -17.5 favorites versus Dallas, -15.5 favorites versus Denver, -16 favorites against Portland, -13.5 favorites over Memphis, -11.5 favorites over Sacramento, and -14.5 favorites versus Miami on Jan. 10.

The Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA. They are a huge under even money favorite to win the NBA Championship this Spring.

But, the Warriors have become a terrible play for both pro and casual bettors. If you’ve noticed an action drop on the Warriors to win ATS, the reasons why are above.

Per head agents should open live betting on Warrior games. This will promote action for those who don’t want to bet on Golden State before the game starts. reps are available to answer any questions. The phone number is 888-978-0288.
