Even without the league's most valuable player, the Golden State Warriors enter game two of the Western Conference Semifinals against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers as nine and a half point favorites. The Dubs have won five straight games at home against the Blazers by an average of 15.8 points per game (GSWStats).
Golden State is 7-1 ATS in their last eight games and have won nine of their last ten overall. The Blazers however have managed just three wins in their last 15 games on the road and are having a difficult time covering the point spread as of late. Portland has failed to cover in seven of their last ten games according to OddsShark.com.
The OVER continues to be a popular bet when Portland and Golden State meet. The last five contests between the two teams have gone OVER. Tonight's tentative OVER/UNDER line is set at 212.5 total points according to virtual sportsbook BetOnline.com.
