Warriors got off to a perfect start of the series. Steve Kerr's men crushed Dallas in the first game (112:87). Golden State managed to slow down Mavs' offense, shooting was just not there was Dallas that night.
Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole put up great individual performances for the hosts. This trio scored 59 points and collected 19 rebounds combined.
Dallas put up a terrible shooting performance in the previous match. Mavericks hit only 52,6% of two-point shots and 22,9% of three-point shots on target.

Warriors beat that total in 3 of 5 latest matches
Steph averages 20 points per game in matches against Dallas
Mavericks are unlikely to perform any better in the second match of the series. Texas team is not looking so great on away games. Dallas earned only two victories in seven previous away matches. Kidd's men were beaten by a wide margin in some of these matches. We are expecting a confident victory from Golden State.
Our prediction - Handicap (-5) points on Golden State
Golden State are a great defensive team, especially at home matches. In three previous games at Chase Center they allowed no more than 98 points. We are expecting another low-scoring match.
Our second bet is on total under 217,5 points
