The Golden State Warriors kicked off their post-All-Star-Game run Friday night with a blowout victory over the LA Clippers.
They’re looking to keep momentum going against the worst team in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets.
The Dubs opened as 19-point favorites in this one, but following Friday night’s contest (a game that saw Golden State somehow, someway drop 50 points in the third quarter alone), the line has increased to 22 points.
*All standings, statistics, rankings, records and trends are current as of this writing at 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 24.
The Brooklyn Nets enter this game with a 9-47 overall record. On the road, which is where they find themselves for this contest, they’re just 2-23 on the year.
Against the spread, Brooklyn has fared better. In fact, finishing the year at or above .500 isn’t completely unrealistic.
At this point in the proccess, the Nets are 24-29 overall ATS. And wouldn’t you know it, they’re 12-10 ATS on the road.
This is all made possible for two key reasons. For starters, Brooklyn’s offense can put the ball in the basket.
Mind you, they don’t do it efficiently by any means. But this team runs the fastest pace in the NBA, which inevitably results in more possessions and therefore more points.
The other reason is that oddsmakers simply expect them to get blown out.
The Nets are not a good basketball team, but they are in the NBA after all. Even the worst teams can avoid blowouts when their offense can score points.
Golden State Warriors
What is there to be said about the Golden State Warriors that hasn’t already been said?
They have four All-NBA players from last season on this year’s roster. They just suited up four All-Stars.
This is a team that’s gunning for a championship, not records — and yet it’s on pace to earn both.
Entering this contest, the Dubs are a ridiculous 48-9 on the season with a home record of 25-3. The catch is that their record ATS is extremely subpar.
As it turns out, oddsmakers give the Warriors the opposite treatment as the Nets: They assume this group is going to blow out everybody, every night.
On the year, Golden State is just 27-28 ATS with an ATS home record of 14-13.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Brooklyn Nets are not going to win this game. They’re hands down the worst team in the NBA going up against hands down the best team in the NBA.
The question is: Can they come up with a win ATS considering the massive 22-point spread?
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn +22
As much potential as this game has to be a 30-point blowout in Golden State’s favor, you have to consider a few things. For starters, Brooklyn scores a lot of points.
The offense isn’t efficient, but it might be enough to keep this one under 22 points.
The other thing to think about is that the Warriors have no reason to get up for this game. Their last outing was a giant win, but it was against a rival and contender in the LA Clippers.
Give this one to the Warriors, but don’t forget that they’re just 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games against teams with a losing record, not to mention just 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games against teams with a winning percent below .400.
