The Warriors got embarrassed in their first game of the season and that just means they are going to attack the lowly Pelicans will full force. However, with garbage time and the Anthony Davis factors, the first half spread of -6 on the Dubs looks like the best play for this game.

I am tailing my guy, Mike Brenner with this one because this is truly a great opportunity for the Warriors. At -10 1/2 favorites for the game, but -6 for the first half, laying the first half spread with the Warriors is almost a no-brainer NBA pick here. 

Outside of Anthony Davis, the Pelicans are a really bad team. They are down their top two guards right now and behind Davis is little to nothing. The Warriors, on the other hand, are going to be amped up to get back on the court and get their first win of the season. They played horribly on defense in their first game and their offense was out of sync at times as well. The Spurs' defense had a lot to do with that, but with the Pelicans now in front of them, they won't have to worry about the opposing defense too much.
