The Seattle Supersonics travel to California to take on the Golden State Warriors Tuesday night and Jimmy Boyd says that the under is the play tonight. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the over/under on Tuesday’s game at 222.
Boyd writes: Golden State has been an overs machine of late, but the Warriors come up against a team tonight that is every UNDER player's dream. The Sonics have gone UNDER in 6 of their last 7 games and 10 of their last 13. Oddsmakers have consistently been overvaluing the point production of a team which is averaging just 95 ppg on the road. All 3 games at Golden State has gobe UNDER the number the past 3 seasons. With Golden State playing without regular Andris Biedrins and with Stephen Jackson banged up and listed as day-to-day. The Warriors are not at full strength. With Golden State not quite as explosive tonight, we'll take the UNDER.
