The Golden State Warriors travel to Sacramento Tuesday to take on the Kings and John Martin says that Golden State will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Golden State -1, but the line has since risen to Golden State –3.
Cook writes: Golden State has made easy work of the Sacramento Kings as of late. The Warriors are 3-0 in their last 3 meetings with the Kings, winning their last 2 contests at Sacramento. The Warriors beat the Kings by 7 and 17 points respectively in their last two road meetings with Sacramento. They have been a much better road team this season and they have a lot more at stake than the Kings considering they are one of the last teams in the playoffs if the season were to end today in the Western Conference. The Warriors are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games overall, scoring 116 points per game in the process. Golden State is 29-12 ATS as a road favorite of 6 points or less since 1996. Sacramento is 2-13 ATS in home games after a home game where both teams score 100 or more points over the last 2 seasons. Cash in with Golden State as the favorite.
