The Warriors dominated the Rockets and embarrassed them on their home court. This is not a Rockets thing, this is a Warriors thing. The Warriors are back to their old selves and it’s no surprise, they are the champions and they will be once again. Look, the more things change, the more they stay the same. With or without Durant, they win game one. Will it be close? Maybe during the opening moments of the first, the waning moments of the second and then it’s off to the races for the champs.

The Blazers have had a very respectable regular season, and at 53-29 (49-42-1 ATS) they have been a solid bet most of the way. The Warriors have been awful against the spread, at 39-53-1, there is a valid reason for this.
You may want another look at this one…and got it. Preview and Prediction Trail Blazers at Warriors Game 1.
Vegas lost their minds! The oddsmakers lost their ever-living minds at the beginning of this season and nothing changed. The Warriors have had many moments of letdown this year. They have been nowhere near the dominating team they once were, and Vegas didn’t adjust. There has simply not been a better year than this last one – to bet against the Warriors.
How does any of this translate against Portland? Terribly!
Like we said, Portland is a good team and even close to being great. With two bigtime stars in Lillard and McCollum, this team is on it’s way, but not this year. They are not going to beat the Warriors. Get a series price before this first game goes off and bet the Warriors. The most that Portland wins is two games. The Warriors live for this moment, they define this moment.
