The Golden State Warriors continue on the road and will visit the Brooklyn Nets at the Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. These teams already faced each other earlier this season in San Francisco where the Warriors took the win 111-101 but they will be playing without Steph Curry this time.

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets get here with a 8-10 record and are 4-6 on the road so far this season ranking 5th in the Atlantic. They're coming from a loss against the Sixers where Kyrie Irving scored 23 points and Kevin Durant had 20 before coach Jacque Vaughn pulled his starting lineup with 3 minutes left in the game.

BETTING TRENDS

Golden State are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games against Brooklyn.

Golden State are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games against Brooklyn.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Golden State's last 5 games on the road.

Golden State are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against Brooklyn.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Brooklyn's last 9 games.

Brooklyn are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Brooklyn's last 5 games at home.

Brooklyn are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games when playing at home against Golden State.

 

Prediction

The Warriors have been up and down this season and have struggled on the road losing 14 of their 17 games away from home. The Nets are on a hot streak as they have won 7 games in a row but are only 5-7-2 ATS at home. However, the Warriors will be without their All-Star Steph Curry for this game and the last time they beat the Nets Curry scored 24 points so I expect this game to be much closer. Take the Nets.

PICK: Warriors -4.5 (-110)
