Warriors vs. Nets 2022 NBA Odds and Preview – December 21st

By Jeff Stinger

Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors head to the East Coast to face the Brooklyn Nets for the first time this season. The Warriors remain outside the top ten following a bad spell of games early into the campaign. They will try to bounce back from a 38-point blowout in the hands of the Knicks with a thinned-out lineup. Meanwhile, the Nets look fierce ahead of the clash. They protect their home court at the back of a six-game winning streak and a win-loss record good for the fourth seed.

Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?

Golden State gets a bit of breathing room as they slowly climb back up the Western Conference table. Although there’s more work to be done, it’s good to see the side get four wins in their last ten games since their lengthy losing spell in October. They now play the last of their six-straight road games in front of a loud Barclays Center crowd.

The Dubs’ lethal offense averaged 117.3 points per game on 56.6% shooting. Having premier shooters in the lineup also means they have one of the best three-point records in the league with an average of 38.1% from deep. Stephen Curry is the man to watch. The veteran shooter leads his team with 29.96 points per game. Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins are averaging north of 19 points per game, while Klay Thompson starts to return to his old self with 18.36 points per game.

Defense is where the Warriors lack. They give up 116.6 points per game. While they do have a top-ten opponent shooting percentage at 46.4%, there are several lapses and a lack of defensive pace from this squad. The team averages 51.0 boards per game with Kevon Looney leading the pack on 7.77 rebounds per game.

Why Bet on the Brooklyn Nets?

The Nets are on fire, winning ten of their last 13 games. Brooklyn also has a chance at extending their winning streak to seven games–their longest run of the season so far. After a strong four-game road stretch that yielded positive results, head coach Jacque Vaughn and his squad look confident ahead of their matchup against the Dubs.

Brooklyn averages 113.1 points per game on 50.4% shooting. They have the second-best shooting record in the league, featuring a seventh-best three-point percentage at 37.4%. Leading the team in points is former Warriors forward Kevin Durant. The 34-year-old registers impressive numbers in the 30 games he played, averaging 30.37 points per game on top of 6.60 rebounds and 5.27 assists. Trailing him is Kyrie Irving who accounts for 26.14 points per game, 4.77 rebounds, and 4.50 assists.

Offense is not the only area where the Nets shine. They also have impressive defensive measures that limit opponents to 111.4 points per game on 45.5% shooting. These are good for top-ten records in the league. Furthermore, Brooklyn does well defending short and mid-range looks that hold teams to a league-best 50.2% opponent two-point percentage.

  • The Nets are 4-1 in their last five games at Barclays Center (2-3 ATS).
  • The Nets are 4-6 in their last ten home games against the Warriors (6-4 ATS).
  • The totals went under in seven of the Nets’ last ten home games.

Warriors vs. Nets Expert Betting Prediction

The Warriors remain banged up after a shorthanded clash with the Knicks. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins are out of the starting lineup due to injuries. This puts their chances of securing a road win on the ropes. However, this gives the second stringers a chance to step up. Jordan Poole and Moses Moody are prime candidates to make a much-needed victory happen.

Meanwhile, the Nets are healthier than ever. Kyrie Irving is firing on all cylinders while Kevin Durant is as deadly as ever. Golden State comes in as the game underdogs but has a good chance of covering the spread.
