The Golden State Warriors conjure up images of effortless three-pointers and plenty of points, but the team has actually been one of the most consistent UNDER bets in the NBA recently. The UNDER is 8-1 in the Warriors last nine outings thanks, in large, to books posting an average total of 225.5 in that span. The Warriors return home following a four-game road trip to host the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday.

- The Warriors are 7-0 SU in their past 7 games against the Clippers.
- The Clippers are 2-9 ATS in their past 11 games on the road.
- The UNDER is 12-5 in the Clippers past 17 games.
Golden State may be without All-Star Steph Curry, as the point guard is officially listed as questionable with quad tightness. Curry has been playing his best basketball of the season since the 2017 calendar started with Chef Curry averaging 26.6 points and 7.0 assists while shooting 41.4 percent from deep in the past 12 games.
The woefully unpredictable Clippers got a boost in their last outing with Blake Griffin re-joining the team after missing 18 games. Griffin notched a double-double in the return but also coughed up six turnovers and shot just 3-for-11 from the field. In the one previous meeting with the Warriors this season, Griffin was harassed and shot a mere 5-of-20 including 1-of-6 from deep.
