Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

The Golden State Warriors come into game 5 of the NBA Finals as the 4-point favorite on the spread. In game 4, Stephen Curry carried the Warriors to a win, scoring 43 points in 41 minutes of action. A lot of his work came in the second half, in which Golden State outscored Boston by 15 points. On the other side, everyone is waiting for Jayson Tatum to come up with a signature performance in his first trip to the NBA Finals. However, throughout the playoffs, the Celtics have not been fazed by having to come up with a big win on the road. Look for Boston to cover the spread as the 4-point underdogs.
