The Golden State Warriors are back on top of the NBA mountain, as they cemented their dynastic run back in June. 

Steph Curry is still at the helm, which means they are fully expecting to be playing basketball until late May and June again. There are a few new faces in the bay, but a majority of the core from last season is together. 

They’ve obviously had some drama this offseason, but how will that affect this season? Will it derail the title defense? Will it be a rallying moment for them? 

Let’s dive into the odds and see where the value lies for both of those questions.

Golden State Warriors Best Bet for 2022-23 NBA Season

Let’s put the Draymond Green stuff to the side for a second. 

The Warriors are still going to be a really good team this season. They’ve dealt with controversy for an entire season, and still got to the NBA Finals before. This is a team that has one of the best systems in the game, one of the best players and one of the best cultures. With Jordan Poole’s ascension and Klay Thompson’s recovery, the Warriors have more shooters than ever. 

For Golden State this season is about defending the title. I don’t know if they will, but I can trust they’ll have a good regular season – as their continuity should push them forward. 

As long as the Warriors have a healthy Steph Curry, they should be trusted to have a good regular season – which is why I’m taking the OVER on their win total this season. 

Now regarding the Draymond act… we’ll see how that goes.
