Reason for Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers Betting tips

Golden State will be looking to take a 2-0 advantage to Portland in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals tonight. The Dubs got off to a fast start in Game 1 which saw them win by 22 points. They limited Portland to just 94 points on the night, the lowest a team has scored against Golden State in the 2019 playoffs so far.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have stepped up massively in the absence of Kevin Durant. They dominated Houston in Game 6 a few nights ago and combined to hit 62 points against Portland in Game 1. On top of that, Golden State’s bench added over 30 points to the total which proved massive with Portland shooting just 36.1% from the field. 

Portland’s star men failed to make as much of an impact with Lillard and McCollum both limited to under 20 points on the night. The team hit just 7 three-point attempts on the night which was 2 less than that of Stephen Curry alone who hit 9 of his 15 attempts. 

It’s quite obvious that Golden State are the better team and we could possibly see a 4-0 series win after that Game 1 performance. The Dubs also still have Kevin Durant to come back later in the series. For Portland, they cannot possibly shoot worse than they did in Game and while I see them improving, I don’t think they can match Golden State on the road with Curry and Thompson playing this well. My prediction is Golden State Warriors -6.5 Point Spread at 5/6. 

Golden State will more than likely break 110 points in each game played in this series with the way they are shooting and taking shots that are nearly impossible to defend. Portland must not allow the Golden State defence to walk all over then again and I do see improvement on the offensive front. My prediction is Over 218 Total Points at 10/11.
