Draymond Green OVER 21.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists

— According to his BetPrep Player Page, Green has exceeded this mark in 29 of his last 48 games. That’s good for a 60.42% clip. 

— The matchup against a strong Lakers’ front line is tough, and Green will need to stay out of foul trouble in order to cash this over. That’s the main concern here. 

— In other positive news, Green went over this mark in the last five games of the 2020-21 season. 

— Klay Thompson is still out for Golden State, meaning the Warriors could ask Draymond to shoulder more offensive responsibilities. 

Russell Westbrook UNDER 19.5 Points

— Westbrook now has to share the ball with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Naturally, that will cut into his scoring production compared to recent seasons. 

— There are reports that Lakers’ coach Frank Vogel wants to keep Westbrook’s minutes below the mid-30’s. We aren’t sure if that will hold true for Opening Night, but it does skew favorably to the under. 

— Surprisingly, Golden State ranked ninth in defensive efficiency to point guards last season. 

— Westbrook’s prop is actually 17.5 points over on PrizePicks, giving us some value here on Underdog Fantasy. 

Jordan Poole OVER 18.5 Points

— Poole will be doing his best Klay Thompson impersonation to begin the season. Thompson is likely out until Christmas, so Poole should start and see full minutes for the Warriors. 

— He has been tearing it up in the preseason. That includes 18 points in just 19 minutes in his last game. Poole also posted a 30 and 28 point game over the past two weeks. Yes, it’s preseason…but still, this guy can put the ball in the hoop. 

— I had to double-check to make sure this line on Underdog Fantasy was correct. Other sportsbooks have Poole listed at 21.5 points with -115 odds to the over and under. We are getting some nice value on UD.
