Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Warriors picked up two defeats in their last five games. However, the team rode a nine-game winning streak before losing to the Jazz and the Knicks. Their win over the Lakers gives the side more confidence before sharing the court with the Clippers on Monday.
The Warriors were held to a double-digit score once in ten games played and scored 110 points or more in the nine remaining games. They now average 110.6 points (12th) per game on 46.6% shooting (ninth). They bring threats everywhere and hit 55.6% of their mid and short-range attempts (third) while averaging 36.2% from downtown (fifth). Additionally, ball movement is a crucial part of Steve Kerr’s gameplay. As a team, the Warriors average 27.3 assists per game and is the second-best record in the league at the moment.
Golden State is just as deadly on defense and is sure to put the Clippers under tremendous pressure. The Dubs limit teams to 103.21 points (third) per game on 43.0% shooting (first). They have some of the best shooting defense in the league as well. The team holds opponents to 33.2% three-point (second) and 50.1% two-point (second) shooting. Furthermore, the Warriors are the top defensive rebounding team in the league averaging 36.3 boards per game.
Why Bet on the Los Angeles Clippers?
The Clippers have been up and down in the last few weeks. It’s been over a month since the team won three consecutive games. Nonetheless, the team managed to stay above rivals Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference standings at No. 8 seed.
Head coach Doc Rivers had to make a few adjustments to tune his team on the defensive side without top-tier scorer Kawhi Leonard at his disposal this season. True enough, the Clippers limit opponents to 107.8 points (13th) per game. They are particular when it comes to shooting defense as they hold teams to 44.6% shooting (seventh) this season. This features a 33.7% opponent three-point (sixth) and a 51.3% two-point (fifth) percentage. These numbers are sure to put the Warriors’ shooters to the test. Ultimately, the Clippers average a 51.0% opponent effective field goal percentage.
On the offensive end, the Clippers have to put their best foot forward to penetrate Golden State’s defense. The hosts average 106.2 points (25th) per game on 45.2% shooting (20th). Although the team only hits 51.1% of their shots from the two-point range (25th), they do well on the outside. Los Angeles hits 36.0% of their three-point attempts.
Reggie Jackson takes the scoring help while Paul George recovers from his injury. The guard is averaging 16.65 points per game. Marcus Morris Sr. provides him sufficient help along with Terance Mann.

Warriors vs. Clippers Expert Betting Prediction
The Clippers are hard-pressed with the Warriors coming in hot. It’s not going to be easy for Los Angeles despite having the support of their home crowd. They have enough in the tank to keep things close and cover the spread. However, a win requires the side to fire on all cylinders. Meanwhile, the Warriors look good in this matchup. They have a healthier squad and even more consistent results. This should be a straightforward game for the Splash Brothers and company.
