Golden State Warriors game lines

The launch of legal sports betting in California will open up betting on individual NBA games in a variety of ways. This includes betting on NBA moneyline, spread and totals, which we will discuss below. You will also be able to wager on dozens of different Warriors player props every game.

What is the Warriors moneyline?

When the season is ongoing, you’ll see the Warriors moneyline numbers for their next game posted above. Moneyline betting asks you to pick an outright winner, locking in the currently posted odds at the time you place a bet.

A Warriors-Lakers moneyline might be LA Lakers +160 at Golden State Warriors -180.

The Lakers +160 line tells you the Lakers are underdogs and you stand to win $160, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet on LA. The Warriors -180 line tells you the Warriors favorites and you stand to win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 you bet on Golden State.

What is the Warriors point spread?

NBA spread betting asks you to pick a winner with a winning margin set by oddsmakers factored into the final score. You also lock in the currently posted odds at the time you place a bet. However, that winning margin evens out most odds.

A Warriors-Lakers spread might be LA Lakers +7.5 (-110) @ Golden State Warriors  -7.5 (-110).

The bets on the Lakers will win if LA wins outright or loses by seven points or less. The bets on the Warriors are on the Warriors to win by eight or more. According to the -110 odds posted here, you’ll win $100 for every $110 wagered, plus your original stake back, on either side.

What is the Warriors over/under?

Totals betting is about picking whether the total score in a game will land over or under a specific line. The Warriors-Lakers total line could be 205.5 points. You can bet the over or under at -110 odds.

The under will pay $100 for every $110 bet,  plus your original stake back if the game finishes with a combined total of 205 points or less. The over will pay $100 for every $110 bet,  plus your original stake back, if the game finishes with a combined total of 206 points or more.

Warriors futures odds

Warriors futures are season-long wagers that will be settled at a future date. Examples include betting on Golden State to win another NBA title, or to make the NBA Finals as Western Conference champs.

These are the kind of bets that are available from the offseason through the postseason at odds that change with the team’s chances of accomplishing the goal the bet sets out. Most of the time, that means the earlier you bet, the better the Warriors betting odds will be.

Once the Warriors are close to winning the Western Conference or the NBA Finals, the odds will shrink significantly. The Warriors or another team could start the year at +2000 to win it all, then have a great year and enter the playoffs as a high seed with odds of +600.

Live betting on the Warriors

Watch a Warriors game from the privacy of your own home, or anywhere you like for that matter, and as long as your phone or tablet is in your hand, you can place bets in the middle of the action.

Sports betting apps you can download to that device feature live betting on the same lines you might bet pregame at odds that change with the game. However, the odds change as quickly as the game does, making those mobile betting apps the essential way to keep up.

Golden State Warriors history

The Golden State Warriors were founded in Philadelphia, but moved to the Bay Area in 1962, becoming the San Francisco Warriors first and eventually the Golden State Warriors in 1971. The Warriors won two Basketball Association of America championships, before an NBA title in 1975, behind the play of stars Rick Barry and Jamaal Wilkes.

The “Run TMC” Warriors were competitive in the 1980s thanks to stars Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin. However, another championship did not come until stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green led them to it in 2015. The Warriors lost to Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals. Golden State added superstar Kevin Durant in the offseason and won back-to-back NBA Championships in 2017 and 2018, then added another title in 2022.

The Warriors are owned by science and tech investor Joe Lacob, who led a group of investors to buy the team for $450 million in 2010. Other investors include Mandalay Entertainment CEO Peter Guber. According to Forbes the team is now worth $4.7 billion and is second only in value in the NBA to the $5.8 billion New York Knicks.

Warriors gambling partners

The Warriors has partnered with Cache Creek Casino Resort for events in the past. For instance, the team held a “25 DAYS OF WINNING” sweepstakes-style contest sponsored by Cache Creek in 2022. The Northern California tribal casino has been involved in several other promos with the team as well.

California doesn’t have legal and regulated sports betting yet, which is part of the reason the Warriors do not have an official sports betting partner. That said, DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook are both Official Sports Betting Partners of the NBA. MGM Resorts is the Official Gaming Partner of the NBA. Plus, a number of other online sportsbooks are Authorized Sports Betting Operators of the NBA.

Who are the Warriors broadcasters?

Close to a third of the Warriors games are on national television. That means ABC, TNT, ESPN, and NBA TV cover the Warriors regularly. Locally in the Bay Area and Northern California, NBC Sports Bay Area is the exclusive TV home for Warriors games, broadcasting a total of 70 of 82 regular-season games. Bob Fitzgerald does play-by-play and former Warrior Kelenna Azubuike is the color analyst.

On the radio, 95.7 The Game is the flagship radio station for Warriors basketball and broadcasts all games. Tim Roye is the radio voice of the Warriors and Jim Barnett and Tom Tolbert share analyst duties.

How to stream Warriors games online

You can stream Golden State Warriors games online with an NBA League Pass subscription. Or, if you’re a subscriber, catch the broadcasts online via NBC Sports Bay Area on the web.

Golden State Warriors FAQ

With two NBA Most Valuable Player awards and three NBA championships, an argument could be made that Stephen Curry is the greatest Warrior of all time. However, many purists say Wilt Chamberlain has that honor, having spent three seasons with the Warriors in Philadelphia and two-and-a-half in San Francisco. Chamberlain was considered unstoppable and the greatest player of his era. He won four MVP awards in his career and two titles, although none came as a Warrior.

The Warriors were founded as the Philadelphia Warriors in the Basketball Association of America in 1946. Three years later, the Basketball Association of America became the NBA. In 1962, Radio and TV producer Franklin Mieuli bought the team and moved it to the Bay Area, renaming it the San Francisco Warriors. Almost a decade later, with the team playing most home games in Oakland for the 1971–72 season, the name was changed to Golden State Warriors after California’s state nickname.

“Dubs” is short for the plural of “W,” and because the name Warriors starts with a “W” many Bay Area locals and fans across the country have nicknamed the Warriors the “Dubs.” Apparently, the nickname “Double U’s” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
