Golden State and Los Angeles last met in the 2013-2014 playoffs, with the Clippers ending the Warriors season in the first round of the Western Conference bracket. Both teams have enjoyed strong starts to the new season, with Golden State 3-0 and Los Angeles 3-1. It is the best start in 20 years for the Warriors. The last time Golden State started this well, they were 5-0 in the 1994-1995 season. Despite all of this, Los Angeles is still the better club, which is why we like the Clippers to win this contest.
Clippers playing well despite tough opponents
Los Angeles has played some tough opponents to begin the season, but they have played well to open with a 3-1 record. All four of their games have been decided by seven points or fewer. The series with the Warriors got heated on multiple occasions last year, and the playoff win might add more fuel to the fire tonight. When Blake Griffin scored 30 or more against Golden State last year the Clippers went 3-0.
Warriors trying to stay undefeated to begin the new season
Golden State can move one game closer to matching their 5-0 start from 1994-1995 with their fourth straight win on Wednesday night to begin the year. They will also be out for a little bit of revenge after suffering the playoff elimination to the Clippers in the first round last season. The Warriors have opened 3-0 without the services of David Lee, who has missed all three games due to a strained left hamstring. He could make his season debut tonight for Golden State.
When the Clippers visit the Warriors in Oakland tonight, we will use the odds from SportsBetting.ag to place our wager. We are going to spend 10 percent of our bankroll on the Clippers with the OVER 208 total points scored as they upset the Warriors on the road.
