One of the most uneven series according to the oddsmakers is going to a sixth game. The Golden State Warriors failed to close out the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Clippers, and now must head back to the Staples Center for their next crack at advancing to the second round.

The defending champions are heavy favourites again in Game 6, and bettors are wondering if there’s still value backing the underdog Clippers in this series.

NBA Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Pro hoop bettors continue to be disappointed by the Warriors. Golden State went 35-46-1 against the spread during the regular season and the team is 2-3 ATS in its first five playoff games. Dating back to the final days of the campaign, the Dubs are 3-6 against the number in their last nine games overall.

The good news for G-State backers is that their club does usually bounce back from losses. The squad is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games following an outright loss. The Warriors also went 18-6 straight up when coming off a loss during the regular season.

No one was expecting the Clippers to take two games off the defending champions. ESPN polled 20 of its NBA writers/analysts and each of them picked the Warriors to win the series. Of those 20 experts, only one (take a bow Ian Begley) had the Clippers winning more than one game in the series.

Sports Interaction is still backing the Dubs to finish off the Clips on Friday night. G-State is a -500 moneyline favourites to win the series in six games, +450 to win it in seven games and +1800 for the Clippers to win it in seven.

Golden State Warriors

Are the Warriors just tired of each other? Kevin Durant seems poised to join the New York Knicks in the offseason, Klay Thompson will be a free agent this summer, and head coach Steve Kerr seems to be at his wits end with Draymond Green.

Kerr was being interviewed during Warriors practice on Thursday and asked a team assistant to turn down the music in the gym. The assistant came back and said Draymond told him to leave the music up.

A reporter then jokingly asked, “Who’s in charge around here?”

Kerr responding without smiling, “Not me, obviously.”

LA Clippers

Lou Williams was again the key contributor for the Clippers in Game 5. The super sub is averaging 24.4 points and 7.8 assists in the series after going for 33 and 10 on Wednesday night.
