The Golden State Warriors have been a tough team to figure out so far in the 2016-17 NBA campaign. The Warriors, who beat Portland and Oklahoma City last week, suffered a 117-97 defeat to the youthful Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. Stephen Curry and company will look to bounce back against the lowly New Orleans Pelicans on Monday.
– Shark Bites
- The Pelicans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games on the road against teams with winning records.
- The Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against the Warriors.
- The favored team is 4-1 ATS in its last five games in this matchup.
Oddsmakers opened the Warriors as astronomical 17-point favorites with a total of 224.5 for the affair.
The Pelicans (0-6) are the only winless team left in the NBA, and they’ve been equally as brutal at the betting window. New Orleans has only managed one cover through six games, which came against the Warriors on October 28 when they were tabbed as 12-point underdogs. Golden State won that game 122-114.
Curry saw his streak of 157 regular season games with at least one 3-pointer snapped in Friday’s loss, as the point guard went 0-for-10 from downtown. Curry is shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc this year – well below his lofty standards. Fellow “Splash Brother” Klay Thompson has been abysmal in that department, as the 26-year-old is shooting 19.6 percent from 3-point land.
The Pellies have had all sorts of trouble against the Warriors lately. Alvin Gentry’s crew are 0-8 SU in their last eight versus Golden State while going 0-9 SU in their previous nine trips to Oracle Arena.
