Head to head, the Warriors are 8-1 ATS in the last nine meetings but the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
The Warriors will be playing this game on zero days rest but there's just no backing against them while they're this hot. Stick with the best team in the league to win by double digits on the road tonight.
