Warriors end win streak

The Golden State Warriors had their six-game win streak come to an end on Thursday in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, a 118-109 win for the Raptors. Golden State is 69-30 on the season, 33-17 on the road, 42-55-2 against the spread and 50-48-1 with the under.

The Warriors are averaging 117.7 points per game on offense this season while shooting 49.1 percent from the floor and 38.5 percent from the arc. Defensively, Golden State gives up 111.2 points per game while opponents shoot just 44.4 percent against them. The Warriors didn’t shoot all too poorly, but they committed 16 turnovers. Golden State was 34 of 78 from the field and 12 of 31 from the arc. Stephen Curry led the way with 34 points, five assists and five rebounds. Klay Thompson added 21 points with five rebounds while Draymond Green had 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

Raptors keep rolling

Toronto has won and covered the spread in five straight games following the win in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Raptors are now 71-30 on the season, 41-11 at home, 49-52 against the spread and 51-47-3 with the over.

The Raptors shot 39 of 77 from the field and 13 of 33 from the arc in Game 1, committing just 10 turnovers along the way. Kawhi Leonard had just 23 points with eight rebounds and five assists. Pascal Siakam led the way with 32 points on an impressive 14 of 17 shooting. He also had eight rebounds and five assists. Marc Gasol also played well, scoring 20 points with seven rebounds. Fred VanVleet added 15 points off the bench.

NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The Warriors are 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 Sunday games and 2-7 ATS in their last nine against Eastern Conference opponents.

Toronto

The Raptors have covered the spread in four straight home games, but 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing on two days of rest.

Prediction:

Toronto had a lot of things go right on Thursday. The Raptors shot the ball very well and their role players stepped up in a big way. I don’t think Siakam can go 14 of 17 from the field again today, or that Gasol is going to put up 20 points. The Warriors struggled with turnovers and looked rusty after 10 days off and still were within reach. I expect the championship pedigree of Golden State to show tonight. Toronto is a great defensive team and won’t make this easy, but I expect the Warriors to make the big plays down the stretch to get past the Raptors.

NBA Prediction: Golden State Warriors +2
