Warriors Raptors Betting Predictions – Warriors Go On The Road, Emboldened By Big Wins

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/27/2013 5:53:06 PM

The Golden State Warriors quickly quieted concerns about their long-term durability by snagging a pair of huge wins this past week. Can they use that momentum in Canada?

Why Golden State Will Win

When a winning poker hand exists, you don't need to worry about outside influences or factors. You just play the hand. Golden State got staggered by the Miami Heat last week in a 92-75 loss to an opponent that was playing its fifth game in a six-game road trip. Interestingly enough, Golden State beat Miami on the road a month earlier under eerily similar circumstances, when the Warriors were winding down their own long road trip and figured to be outplayed by the fresher Heat on Miami's home floor. When Golden State got blown out at home by Miami in the rematch between the two teams, it was reasonable to wonder if the Warriors were losing their edge.

Now, those worries about the Warriors seem to be quite unfounded. Golden State took care of the Los Angeles Clippers this past Monday, but some critics noted that Chris Paul of the Clippers was not healthy when the game ended, using that observation to suggest that the win was not a full-value win. Fine – Golden State went out on the court on Wednesday night and defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder to affirm that it's not about to plummet in the Western Conference standings. Winning games against two elite teams in a three-day span will fill Golden State with a ton of confidence for this upcoming road trip through the Midwest and Canada. The Warriors should be able to impose their will on the Raptors and create the playing style they want.

Why Toronto Will Win

Even an online horse betting guru with relatively minimal knowledge of professional basketball would be able to tell you that the Raptors have a legitimate chance in this game. Golden State will have played back-to-back games in Chicago and Milwaukee on Friday and Saturday, perhaps weakening the Warriors' legs as they prepare for this contest. Toronto is in the midst of as homestand, playing Cleveland on Saturday before this tilt on Monday. The Raptors, in addition to having the benefit of resting in their own homes and beds for this game, will also be buoyed by their performance on Wednesday night against the Miami Heat.  Toronto had to play a very rested Miami club, one which had not played in six days. Yet, Toronto outplayed the Heat in the first three quarters and took the defending champions to overtime. The effort was a superlative one, and it has to give this team a lot of belief for the remaining weeks before the All-Star Game, when this team can re-gather itself for the stretch run.

Who Will Win

This feels like a close game. Toronto will give Golden State all it wants, but the Warriors have proven themselves so many times this season that they should be trusted in this particular spot.
