Warriors vs. Kings, 10 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Warriors -1.5
Golden State has never gone down 0-2 in a playoff series during the Steph Curry era and it’s hard to imagine the defending champs falling into a hole to start the playoffs. The Warriors had outshot the Kings 47.8% to 44.9% in Game 1 and had an opportunity to tie the game with a Curry three attempt as time expired. You also have to consider an emotional hangover on Sacramento’s end after Saturday’s victory. Take GSW to cover and outright win tonight.
Over/Under: Under 240
Both teams were trading bombs all throughout the fourth quarter in what turned into an exciting finish in front of a rowdy crowd at the Golden 1 Center. I’d imagine this game to be slightly tamped down and that means shaving about 10 points off the board on both sides. Take the under.
