The Golden State Warriors host the Los Angeles Clippers as double-digit favorites looking for a 51st straight home win.

The Golden State Warriors have a perfect 50-0 straight up record in their last 50 home games and are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games. The Warriors will try to extend their historic home winning streak this Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Golden State is a 10-point betting favorite for Wednesday's game at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. This will be the seventh straight home game that the Warriors are favored by double digits, going 4-2 ATS in the previous six instances.

The Warriors had a seven-game win streak snapped in San Antonio on Saturday, falling to the Spurs 87-79. It was the first time all season that the Warriors had been held under 90 points, with Stephen Curry scoring only 14 points and shooting 1-for-12 from behind the arc.

Golden State bounced back with a road win over Minnesota on Monday to improve to 63-7 SU, and will need a 9-2 SU record or better down the stretch to break the 1996 Chicago Bulls' NBA record-best season of 72-10.

In the last five games between the Warriors and the Clippers, Golden State is 5-0 SU, but just 2-3 ATS per the OddsShark NBA Database. All five of those wins came by eight points or less.

The Los Angeles Clippers were projected to be one of the top contenders to win the NBA championship this season, but they've been a clear step behind the top teams in the West to this point. As the playoffs quickly approach, the Clippers are just 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games, bringing their season record to 43-26 SU and 32-35-2 ATS

With no timetable set for Blake Griffin's return, the Clippers will need to figure things out without him to hold on to the fourth seed in the Western Conference.

Wednesday's total is set at 225.5 points. The UNDER is 4-2 in the last six meetings between these two teams.

Based on current form and Golden State's dominance at home, the line makes sense with the Warriors as a double-digit favorite. But with each of the last five games in this series being decided by under 10 points and the Clippers owning a 4-2 ATS edge on the Warriors in their last six against the defending champions, this one could end up being closer than some are expecting.
