Stephen Curry has been the leader for Golden State in this one. Curry is averaging 25.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game. Andrew Wiggins has averaged 17.4 points per game.

Pick Overview

These two teams are competing at the top of the Western Conference, which should lead to an exciting matchup in this one. Golden State has struggled against the Nuggets, but I think they can bounce back with a win in this one. Denver is coming off a win in Sacramento on Wednesday night and I think it will lead to a slower start in this one.

BetOnline has the Warriors listed as a -2 against the spread in this one. This gives a slight edge to Golden State on the road. I agree with this line as the Nuggets are coming off a game in Sacramento on Wednesday night. The Warriors have struggled a bit as of late, but I think they can break through in this one. As slight favorites, I like the value on Golden State.
