The Golden State Warriors open as big favorites for Wednesday night's contest against Dirk Nowitzki and the visiting Dallas Mavericks. It is the first trip to Oracle for the Mavs since defeating the Steph Curry-less Dubs 114-91 back on December 30th. Golden State has won their last 20 games straight up when favored by at least 15.5 points, however they are just 5-15 ATS in those games according to OddsShark.com.

The Warriors have been absolutely incendiary as of late. Steph Curry and company ran circles around the best defensive team in NBA history on Monday when they handed the Spurs their worst loss since 2013. Golden State smacked San Antonio upside the head with 94 points through the first three quarters. Entering Monday the Spurs were holding opposing teams to just 89 points per game.

Apparently the beating was so bad that Spurs' big man LaMarcus Aldridge (five points, three rebounds, three turnovers and -20 plus/minus) disabled his Twitter account right after the game, and to think Doc Rivers called the Warriors sensitive. The only thing stronger than Golden State's confidence right now is LA Clippersequipment manager Matias Testi's jaw.

The over/under line is hovering around 216.5 total points according to BetOnlineOddsShark.com reports that the under is 13-5 in the Mavericks' last 18 games when playing a Western Conference opponent. However the over is 7-3 in Golden State's last 10 games.
