Golden State Warriors will host Toronto Raptors for one of the most interesting game of the night. The Warriors are favourite to win this match but I prefere to bet on over here even if line seems to be high. Last season, these two teams met two times: Golden State Warriors won both matches. At Warriors' home 232 points were scored while at Raptors' home 248 points were scored.
It's clear that this will be a very high tempo match and this will be a very funny match to watch. Over 228,5 should be the right bet for this match.
Golden State Warriors didn't start good this season as they have a 2-2 record. They won against New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks while they could do nothing against Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies. Their offense was outstanding in 3 of these 4 matches. In fact, they have scored 121 points against the Rockets, 128 against the Pelicans and 133 points against Dallas Mavericks. The only team able to stop them was Memphis Grizzlies. Their defense, on the other hand, was not that strong as they have conceded 111 points against the Grizzlies, 120 against the Pelicans, 122 against the Rockets and 103 against the Mavericks (one of the worst teams in the league). I was not expecting them to lose against the Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies but that happened as this is only the beginning of the season and they need some time to be at their best again especially on defense.
Toronto Raptors, on the other hand, started good this season as they have a 2-1 record. Their lost came in the last match away from home against San Antonio Spurs 101-97. Before that loss, they won 128-94 against the Philadelphia 76ers and 117-100 against Chicago Bulls. It's true that they were able to keep their opponents under 102 points but story will obviously change against Golden State Warriors especially playing away from home. Toronto Raptors is a very dangerous team and they could even give problems to the Golden State Warriors. Despite that, their defense will not be tough for the Warriors and that's why I'm expecting big amount of points scored.
This will be a very high tempo with both teams scoring a lot of points and I'm expecting a similiar result to what happened last season. Over 228,5 seems to be a good choice in this one. I will go with high stakes in this one.
Prediction: Toronto Raptors 122-132 Golden State Warriors
