LA Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors Best Odds and Picks (01/06/21)

LA Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Betting Odds and Picks

A clear difference shows with the LA Clippers.  First-year head coach Ty Lue is making a strong impression.  Lue was a Clippers assistant in 2019-20.  He replaced long-time head coach Doc Rivers. Following their September playoff flop, LA fired Rivers. Ironically, he was the winningest coach in Clippers history.  Rivers’ downfall was his NBA betting playoff failures.  Lue has championship credentials from his days in Cleveland.  Also with a championship pedigree are the Warriors.  Golden State is a mere shell of their former dynasty days.  Stephen Curry remains from those Glory Years.

Clippers at Warriors CashBet Wagering Analysis

Once upon a time, the Warriors were one of the hottest sportsbook brands on the board.  Golden State is a memory.  The glory of the past is not relevant to now.  And Stephen Curry is not going to carry the Warriors alone.  Meanwhile, the Clippers are in impressive form.  Lue is in his honeymoon period.  LA’s real test is months away.  Owner Steve Ballmer wants an NBA championship. Concurrently the regular season is all about prepping for that.

Clippers Have the Look of a Lue Team

At the onset of the new season is a promising start by the Clippers.  LA is 4-2 straight up and against the spread with 3-3 on totals.  NBA metrics show the Clippers 15th for scoring offense and 11th for points allowed.  Thus far Leonard has taken a liking to his new coach.  Leonard is averaging a team-best 23.8 points per game.  Also, is he averaging 6.5 rebounds and assists per game.  So too has Paul George been a Betting on NBA asset.  He’s averaging 22.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game.

Warriors Still Lack Value with Curry’s Return

 Stephon Curry is back with the Warriors after missing last season.  So far Golden State hasn’t shown any pro basketball betting value increase.  The Warriors are 2-3 straight up, 1-4 against the spread, and 2-3 under.  NBA rankings show the Warriors 21st for scoring offense and 30th for points allowed.  Curry leads Golden State with 26.4 points, 6.6 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game.  Supplementing that has been Andrew Wiggins.  He’s averaging 17.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per contest.  Simply put Curry isn’t getting the help that he did in the Glory Days.
