Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

The Warriors are only projected to win 50 games with the injury to Klay Thompson, the losses of key veterans and the addition of new pieces like D'Angelo Russell. But come March 2020 they should be back on solid footing. Their odds to win it all are 12/1, 7.7% (#6). If futures lines were not heavily juiced, the Warriors would be a good betting value. Their 7.3% chance to win the championship (based on simulations) is #5 in the league. They are a good bet to win the West at 8/1, 11.1%. Their sim chance is 13.5%. The Warriors are averaging 50.1 wins per sim which makes them a decent bet to win over 49 games. At -550 the Warriors are a good value to make the playoffs with a 96.4% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 7/2, 22.2%. They win the division in 21.9% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #3 in the West.

The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).
