Utah has lost 4 of their last 5 and are probably looking for a momentum win beating up on a depleted Phi team. 10pts is a wide spread but with Utah at home, we expect them to put the beatdown. Gobert is apparently questionable so this does worry me, but we am going with Utah here for the 20pt blowout
GSW 2H +1.5 (odds at 1.80, seems to be a thing with GSW 2nd half spreads)
This is naturally a tough one given the amount of talent on both sides. We worry whether GSW will have the wing defenders to guard both Durant and Harden, but we can also see GSW taking this regular season game very seriously given this will be their hardest test in the playoffs (opposing teams with elite wings that can score at will). Brooklyn has lost to some of their tougher matchups this year and beat their easy matchups. Going with GSW to come out with adjustments for the 2nd half and win the 2nd half if they are not gonna win the whole game.
Warriors +3 Riding the Warriors again, but we’re going to the Nets some respect at home. Draymond was also on the Manning show, so Manning Curse could happen. We like Warriors, but we’lll do the spread instead of ML.
Brooklyn, what’s up?

Paul George Over 8.5 Rebounds +110
George has gone over this number in 6 of his last 8. One of the games was against the number 1 rebounding team in the league Beverley went off. Perhaps it was the score that George just didn’t care but we still like the number here. Spurs are 26th in the league in total rebounds.
Tyrese Maxey Over 16.5 Points -118
Wasn’t really a fan of Maxey but he has shown up big in the last few games. Going to ride him while he’s hot. We think Utah will be able to get a nice lead early which will make PHILI push the tempo, with Maxey shooting 51% and 41% from 3 I like our odds here
