TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, MARCH 23RD
#556 GOLDEN STATE (+4) over Philadelphia at 10 PM EST
Off Saturday’s eight-point loss at Memphis and with three days to prepare, Golden State will pull off the upset over Philadelphia on Tuesday. The Sixers enter this non-conference battle off a pair of straight up wins over the Kings and Knicks and this will be a tough spot for head coach Doc Rivers and his boys.
History will certainly help our cause. In the last 14 meetings against the 76ers, the Warriors hold a dominant 12-2 SU record. Equally impressive, as a non-conference host running the floor against a foe that enters off a straight up win, Golden State owns a reliable 43-16 SU and 34-23-2 ATS record including an elite 36-10 SU and 28-16-2 ATS provided their opponent was on the road last. If head coach Steve Kerr’s troops are fighting a foe that enters off two or more straight up wins, State jumps to a powerful 13-1 SU and 10-3-1 ATS.
Sporting a feeble 44-57 SU and 41-56-4 ATS mark, Philadelphia has been very beatable when it is on the road. In this setting checking in with confidence off two or more straight up wins, the Sixers fall to a disturbing 14-28 SU and 11-30-1 ATS including a horrible 7-15 SU and 4-18 ATS if they are favored by -1.5 or more. With those three parameters in play and the 76ers competing against an opponent that does not enter off a double-digit blowout loss, this team trend falls to a shocking 3-13 SU and 1-15 ATS including a pitiful 2-11 SU and 0-13 ATS if they are running with two days of rest or less.
Even though the Dubs will likely be without guard Stephen Curry (tailbone contusion), Coach K will rally the troops and find a way to knock off the Sixers under the TNT lights. Take Golden State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
