After a 121-104 drumming at the hands of the Warriors in Game 1, the Clippers look to bounce back in Monday night's Game 2 showdown. The Warriors are 13.5-point favorites in Oracle Arena, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Since it's always good to get the opinion of an expert before placing a wager, here's what some from around the industry are saying about this Game 2 matchup.

Warriors vs Clippers Predictions

Sports Chat Place

The folks at Sports Chat Place feel the Warriors looked dominant in Game 1 despite the ejections. They are expecting another win from Golden State, but also think that oddsmakers are giving too many points to the Clippers. Sports Chat Place is taking the Clippers to cover the spread.

Cappers Picks

The Cappers Picks folks think the Warriors defense will be on full display tonight. They think Golden State wants to send a message to the rest of the NBA, and they have the superstars to do it. The Warriors -13.5 is their pick.


Tony T notes the hot shooting that Golden State has been putting up lately. Furthermore, Los Angeles has done a bad job at defending the 3-point line, meaning Golden State could run away with this one. He's picking Golden State minus the points.

So we have three experts expecting the straight-up victory for the Warriors, but one expert is expecting the cover out of the Clippers in Game 2.
