Golden State will attempt to even the series tonight at home before heading back to Sacramento for Game 5.

The Warriors scored a statement win in Game 3, defeating the Kings by 14 points. There were concerns about this team after losing two close games at the Golden 1 Center, but they did what they do best and destroyed their opponent at home. The dilemma they now face, they only have two more games at home.

All this to say, the Warriors should smash again tonight. However, these back-to-back wins may mean little in the long run, as they will almost certainly lose again when they return to Sacramento.

Parlay: Golden State -4.5 & Under 245.5 (+103)

Making a play on the series is tough at this point. However, this is the last chance to bet on Golden State, as the odds are as good as they will ever be. This is a coinflip series, and the only advisable bet on the series is the number of games.

Total Games: Seven (-105)

Celtics @ Hawks

Atlanta managed to steal one off Boston in Game 3. This series should have been a sweep, or at least a 3-0 series where the Celtics toy with the Hawks in Game 4. But now the Celtics need to take care of business today so they can close things out at home in Game 5.

Series Spread: Boston -2.5 (-120)

Dejounte Murray continues to impress in this series, with 25 points in Game 3. Young finally decided to show up after scoring 16 in Game 1 and 24 in Game 2, he posted 32 points to bring Atlanta what will be their lone victory in this series.

Boston’s plan in this one should be to shut down Murray and make Young beat them. While he will have a solid showing no matter what they throw at him, it ultimately will not be enough to secure a Hawks’ victory.

Boston -6 (-110)
Trae Young Over 25.5 Points (-110)
