Spurs vs. Warriors Prediction & Pick

The Warriors got star Stephen Curry back from a shoulder injury on Tuesday, but even that couldn't help them from falling to an injured Suns squad. It was Golden State's third straight home loss. Head coach Steve Kerr's squad has the perfect matchup to get back in the winning column tonight, though.

San Antonio ranks last in the NBA in defensive efficiency and allows a whopping 119.4 points per home game (No. 29 in NBA). The Spurs also give up an opponent shooting percentage of 48.9% at the AT&T Center (No. 28 in NBA). The Warriors should have no issues scoring the basketball here.

Golden State is 14-6 straight up in its last 20 games against a Southwest Division opponent, so I'll back the Warriors.

Final Score Prediction: Spurs: 119 | Warriors: 129

Spurs vs. Warriors Best Bet

It's rare to see an NBA total cross the 240-point threshold. However, it makes sense in this matchup. Both the Warriors and Spurs rank among the top eight NBA teams in pace and rank outside the top 20 teams in defensive efficiency. Expect lackluster defense, easy layups and uncontested put-backs.

The total has hit the over in each of Golden State's last nine away games as well as in 11 of San Antonio's last 13 games overall. The over has also cashed in seven of San Antonio's last eight games against a Western Conference opponent. Trust the trends and root for points on Friday night.

Bet: Over 243 points (-110)
