TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, MARCH 24TH
#542 GOLDEN STATE (-5′) over Philadelphia at 10 PM EST
The Warriors have dropped two straight in their series against the 76ers including a 118-106 beatdown in the City of Brotherly love back on December 16th, 2022. Locked into a double revenge mode, Golden State will be sure to take care of business in this rematch.
This is actually a solid wagering spot for head coach Steve Kerr and his troops. At home, the Warriors have been a force inking a solid 45-11 SU and 39-17 ATS record in their last 56 games. In this run fighting a foe that arrives with momentum off a straight up win, Golden State improves to a strong 24-3 SU and 22-5 ATS including an outstanding 17-2 SU and 18-1 ATS provided it is priced as an underdog or a favorite of -7.5 or less. Also, at home stepping up in class and fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .670 or better, the Warriors own a profitable 47-26-2 ATS tally including 36-13 ATS if their opponent hits the hardwood with confidence off a straight up win.
This is a terrible wagering spot for the Sixers too. When priced as an underdog and taking the court off a SU and ATS victory, Philadelphia holds a weak 15-37 SU and 19-31-2 ATS mark in its last 52 battles including a woeful 10-29 SU and 12-25-2 ATS provided it is playing on the road. With those two parameters live and the 76ers fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, this technical situation crashes to a woeful 7-24 SU and 9-22 ATS.
Locked into the No. 6 slot in the current Western Conference Standings, the Warriors need this win to keep their slim advantage over the five other teams that are all within 1.5-games of them. Take Golden State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
