Stephen Curry to score 31 points or more and Warriors win at 5/4
Steph Curry is having an unbelievable season, averaging a league high 30.3 points per game as the Golden State Warriors continue their march to the NBA Championship.
Coral’s bet of the day features some exciting basketball action, with odds of 5/4 on Curry to score more than 31 points in a Warriors win against third-bottom Western Conference team, Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Warriors currently sit top of the Western Conference and are on the hunt for Chicago Bulls’ record of 72 regular season wins. Steve Kerr’s men are now just 11 victories away from breaking the record.
Oakland’s finest have won 13 of the last 14 games against Minnesota and look on track to continue that fine record.
Curry to continue historic form
Averaging a league high 30.3 points, Curry is performing at a Hall of Fame level and has been discussed whether he is perhaps the best shooter to ever play the game.
Golden State’s opponents Minnesota, currently possess the third-worst record in the Western Conference and sit well outside the playoff race.
Curry scored a huge 46 points last time the teams met and has totalled an incredible 80 points over their last two meetings.
The point guard has executed 337 three-pointers this season – 100 more than anyone else. He boasts an impressive three-point percentage of 56.5 against Minnesota in their last couple of encounters.
Minnesota will be without their leader and NBA title winner, Kevin Garnett. He provides vital experience and leadership on and off the court and will be a huge miss to the team who’s starting five will have an average age of just 22.6.
The Timberwolves have the fourth-worst defensive rating in the entire league. Combine this with the fact Golden State score the most points in the league and you have perfect recipe for Curry to put on another high scoring show in Minneapolis.
