The Raptors have outscored the Dubs in 16 of 20 quarters in the series, but GSW's won two of those games with explosive scoring. How the Warriors respond to the emotional roller coaster theyve been on since Monday nobody knows. But its the last game at Oracle Arena and I think Golden State magically finds a way to get this series to a Game 7. I'm hoping this line goes to -2 before tip and will play Golden State. The total for tonights game is the lowest of the series, opening at 211, so I endorse a play on the over as well.
Player Props: Demarcus Cousins OVER 11 points (-120). Without KD I think Cousins will get a lot of looks tonight. ..especially if they keep running that Box-and-1 defense against Steph. Shrek hasn't don't anything offensively in this series and Demarcus and Iguodala only other offensive threats. I like Cousins to have a big game.
Hey guy's Exciting game tonight! Like i've said before GSW are nothing without kevin durant! Game 5 GSW won just because of those 11 points kevin durant made before he got injured! So yes tonight toronto finishes it! Toronto wins pick moneyline toronto to win. And over and under looks difficult but if you want to finish the job tonight at oracle arena you need points! So over 211!70%
I don't see a lot of value here tonight but my instincts say take the points in what should be a hard fight close game.
Toronto has dominated in the paint and without KD the the Splash Brothers will have to combine for 60 to win this game. These are two of the most offensively potent teams in the league and combination of Warriors outside shooting and Toronto scoring leads me to liking the OVER 211.5 here. Fun fact: the over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Golden State....Toronto and Over 211.5 (lightly).
Raptors are the better team overall but I think Golden State at home gets the win tonight in another close one. Raptors win in 7.
The Raptors let Game 5 slip through their hands, but I like them to win the championship tonight at Oracle Arena where they won the previous 2 games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. I just don't see Golden State shooting the rock like they did in game 5 to stave off elimination and Kawhi is a terminator that is in kill mode right now. Toronto should win but will grab the free 3 points just in case.50%
Player Prop Bets I like tonight: Steph Curry UNDER 31 points. Klay Thompson OVER 22 points. Draymond Green OVER 13 points. Raptors will continue to play lock down defense (box and 1 defense) on Curry so I don't expect him to have an easy night and this will open up Draymond and Klay to take more shots.
Kevin Durant playing has impacted the gambling world. From a Caesars Sportsbook oddsmaker: "Some of the player props are drifting down a little, game line hasn't moved much, but I expect it'll drift closer and closer to pick 'em if KD looks good in warm-ups." Get your Warriors bets locked in.
Conspiracy theory- the NBA has too much money to lose for this series to end in only 5 games. Whether it's the refereeing or the man behind the curtain, the Warriors will win tonight.
I expect the pace and intensity of this game to be amazing but the longer the duration of that intensity and pace the more it will favor the Raptors. If the Warriors are off how they use KD they will be flat down the stretch and this is over.
