The over is 4-1 in the Warriors last 5 Friday games.
Neither team has been good ATS this season, the Spurs are 0-4 and the Warriors are 1-3 ATS to this point. The Warriors are still trying to find themselves through the first 4 games. The Warriors are trying to get an offense to gel together, without Klay Thompson. The Spurs have been led primarily by DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge to this point. I think Draymond Green will be able to limit the damage from Aldridge in the post. As good as the Warriors have been in the past, I just find it hard to believe that the Warriors will start the season 1-4. However, the Warriors defense has been abysmal this year, giving up an average of 126 a game. Final score prediction, Spurs win and cover 120-112.
