The Golden State Warriors look to keep things rolling on their undefeated record. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.7 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 97.4 points on 41 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 33.9 points and six assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 15 points and 4.4 rebounds. Draymond Green is dishing 5.9 assists and Festus Ezeli is grabbing seven rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc and are getting 83.7 points from their starting five. The Warriors simply have shown no signs of slowing down since last season. The Warriors haven’t lost a home regular season game since January 27th.
The Pistons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Monday games. The Warriors are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
I don't like the high chalk in this matchup, as the Pistons can play defense and rebound. However, the safer bet to me is the over. The Warriors will continue to do what they do with the three ball, but the Pistons should also get a lot of second chance points. I expect a high-scoring contest.
