The Golden State Warriors have been the top team in basketball throughout the 2014-2015 season, so it comes as no surprise that they flaunt the best winning NBA Championship odds (4/5 as we go to press). Still, pitted against a gritty veteran group like the Memphis Grizzlies, success is not assured.
While some view the Grizzlies as a knowledgeable team capable of dealing damages in the postseason, the Dubs appeared unfazed. Game one saw the very same dominant Warriors that hoops fans had seen all year. During the normal season, Golden State went 47-34-1 ATS as well as if their opening salvo in the Western Seminar semi-finals was any type of indicator, they're going to carry on beating the odds.
The Warriors removed the Grizzlies by 15 points in game one (surpassing a -10.5 spread), but Memphis is a capable team and also should not suffer a second consecutive blowout. If Golden State is to be a strong NBA wagering choice, they'll need to adapt to any adjustments Memphis makes and then be ready for when the series hits the road.
With recently named MVP Stephen Curry aboard, such tasks aren't out of the question. Whatever happens it would be unwise to ignore Memphis as they have proven form having beaten authentic title competitors in the playoffs before.
