Seven game road trips are what the dreams of those that fade are made of. Public confidence has never been high on the Warriors then after their demolition of the Kings. Winners of their first eighteen straight, Golden State starts an extended journey in Utah. Here they get to meet one of the top defensive teams in the league. The sharp money has spoken a little bit. See which way the opener went after starting at – 7 1/2 on the road favorite for this 11/30 NBA Free Pick.
NBA Free Pick : Utah
This is where some of the sharps dabbled right off the hook dropping the line to the -7 where it stands right now. Favors, Gobert, and Booker will be a formidable front line that the Jazz trot out against Golden State. Meanwhile the 8-7 Jazz are riding a two game winning streak that saw significant contributions from Hood, Hayward, and Burks. If anything, this team has the talent to thwart Draymond Green from getting his third triple double in a row.
How deep did sub coach Walton go for the Warriors? He plucked Brandon Rush from the bench to start. His faith was rewarded with Rush burying four for five from downtown en route to sixteen points. Harrison Barnes still has his bum ankle so Rush will have to continue his productivity. This will be a tall order because Utah is a slower tempo team whose identity is now entrenched with above average defense.
Young team free rolling at home against the World Champs starting a long road trip. It is very understandable to see why the sharps took the early stand. Phoenix tried to out run them and the Kings were too thin and hurt to offer more than token resistance. While the ML might beckon, safer heads prevail here. Take the +7 Jazz as the home cover for our NBA Free Pick for 11/30. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
