One might think that it is a little odd to see the Warriors as 7.5-point underdogs in spite of the fact that they have literally dominated the three most recent games in this series, but we have to remember that though this is a series, Game 5 itself is just one game in a bottle. When you take away all of what you saw over the course of the last week or so, what’s left is a Denver team that is still 39-4 SU and 28-15 ATS this season when playing at home. The Nuggets were always a significantly better home team than a road team, and it wasn’t all that surprising to us that they ended up losing both of the games at Oracle Arena. In fact, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to us if they did ultimately end up losing the series right here at home. However, we have to play the percentages, and those percentages say that the hot shooting Warriors simply can’t keep this pace up. Sure, G Stephen Curry is going to have quarters like he did in the third quarter on Sunday in which he scored a whopping 22 points all by himself, and when that happens, you just have to find a way to stick with him shot for shot as a team. Denver has a knack for doing just that with some of the best teams in the league, and Golden State will be no exception. We have to think that this is a game that the Nuggets end up winning by double digits significantly more often than not.
