Game 4 – San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors Free Pick: Three grueling games are said and done with for the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors. Now, they’ll be back in NBA betting action in Game 4 in a standalone game on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET at Oracle Arena. The NBA odds are once again favoring Golden State at -1 ½, but the number that we are going to be making our NBA predictions on is the over/under, which opened up at 201.

The oddsmakers have officially adjusted too much on this ‘total’ at this point. We knew that the number was just a bit too high at 205 ½ when this series hit Game 2, but we still think that this one is due to get into the 210s or even the 220s. When you look back at the box score from Game 3, you can tell that there should have been more points put on the board than the 194 that were actually scored. G Stephen Curry and G Klay Thompson aren’t going to combine to hit just 12-of-37 in this game, and even if three or four more shots fall and perhaps both teams make a few more foul shots, that’s all that we need to get this one past the number. Remember that this Golden State team has still scored at least 110 points in two of its four home games here in the postseason. Even when these two teams met at the end of the regular season, granted in a game in which the Spurs were playing without most of their stars, the Warriors scored 116 points and fired off 98 shots from the field. That’s the type of offensive effort that we are expecting to see in this one, as this becomes the second game in this series to exceed the ‘total’.
