TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH
#524 GOLDEN STATE (-6′) over Denver at 8:30 PM EST
The Warriors fit a strong 26-7 ATS NBA Playoff situation and head coach Steve Kerr and his troops will have no trouble extending the margin in this game one matchup against the Nuggets. Denver makes the trek to California stumbling a bit on a soft 8-8 SU and 6-10 ATS run, and they’ll have issues in this contest.
Historically speaking, the Warriors have played well in this series when facing a Nuggets squad that holds a team won/loss percentage of .535 or better posting a proud 14-6 SU and 16-2-2 ATS record in their last 20 tries. In this situation busting in with confidence off a SU and ATS win, Coach Kerr’s boys improve to a solid 8-2 SU and 9-0-1 ATS in their last 10. Also, in the playoffs running against a foe that sports a team won/loss percentage of .580 or higher, Golden State owns a respectable 73-48 SU and 71-48-2 ATS tally. Finally, in the first game of any playoff round, the Warriors have inked a strong 19-4 SU and 13-10 ATS mark including a sweet 10-4 SU and ATS provided they are not laying double digits.
The playoff road hasn’t been kind to Denver either. As a postseason guest, the Nuggets own a stiff 12-42 SU and 22-32 ATS record in their last 54 games including a nasty 2-17 SU and 3-16 ATS if their opponent takes the floor with confidence off two or more straight up wins. With those two parameters live and head coach Michael Malone’s troops competing against a foe that arrives off a pointspread win, this team trend bottoms out at a shocking 0-12 SU and ATS. That spells serious trouble for Denver.
With Stephen Curry listed as probable and expected to be on the court for State’s Western Conference playoff opener, the Warriors will set the tone for the entire series with a dominant performance over the Nuggets. Take Golden State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
