The Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday in Game 1 of their best-of-seven NBA Western Conference Finals, 112-87.

This was the Warriors’ 199th playoff win in franchise history. 

A win on Friday would make the Warriors the fifth franchise with 200 or more playoff wins, joining the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and San Antonio Spurs. 

As for the Mavericks, they hope to build on their number of franchise playoff victories with a win Friday against the Warriors.

The game is being played at Chase Center in San Francisco. Tipoff is at 9 p.m. ET. The Warriors hold a 1-0 lead in the seven-game series.

Betting Models Favor Warriors

Dallas is just 2-6 straight-up and 4-4 against the spread, including a 1-7 Over-Under record for 88% winning Under bets, over the last 10 playoff seasons. 

This does not point favorably in the Mavericks’ direction

There’s more.

Teams that were outscored by 10 or more points in the paint and were outscored by 10 or more in fast-break points, and are now priced as a road underdog, have gone 9-38 straight-up and just 19-28 ATS for 40% winning bets in playoff games.

This is another factor indicating a positive outcome for Golden State in Friday’s game.

For these reasons, I am leaning toward the Golden State Warriors, at -6.5 points as offered at BetMGM Sportsbook.
