BetAnySports’ NBA Playoffs Tuesday Pick of the Day

Game 2- Memphis Grizzlies vs. Golden State Warriors

The best-of-seven Western Conference Semifinals’ showdown between the Memphis Grizzlies

and the top-seeded Golden State Warriors resumes this Tuesday night with Game 2. The

Warriors hold the early 1-0 series lead and they have been listed by BetAnySports as heavy 10-

point home favorites for Tuesday night. The NBA betting odds for the total have been set at

194.5.

Memphis made short work of Portland in the opening round with a 4-1 series victory while

covering against the spread in three of the five games. The Grizzlies came-up well short as

10.5-point road underdogs in this series opener in a 101-86 loss this past Sunday. They are still

a profitable 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine contests and the total has stayed UNDER in six of their

last nine games.

It is hard enough to try and beat the best team in the NBA at full strength, but Memphis sorely

missed the presence of Mike Conley in the lineup in Sunday’s loss. He remains doubtful for

Tuesday with some broken bones in his face, so it will be up to the likes of Marc Gasol and Zack

Randolph to elevate their games even higher to avoid falling into a 0-2 hole in this series. These

two combined for 41 points and 18 rebounds in Game 1, but the Grizzlies could not find a way

to close a nine-point gap at the half.

The Warriors cruised to a four-game straight-up sweep of New Orleans in the opening round,

but they have still been a tough team to bet on with a 3-8 record ATS in their last 11 games that

includes a 2-6 mark ATS in their last eight home games. Not helping matters is the fact that they

have closed as double-digit favorites on BetAnySports’ closing betting line in six of their last

nine games.

Stephen Curry remains one of the leading candidates for the league’s MVP award this season,

and he has been playing at even higher level in the playoffs with a ridiculous average of 31.4

points per game. Golden State has averaged 107.2 PPG in its first five postseason games while

shooting an effective 45.9 percent from the field.

Even with Conley still out of the lineup, I still like the Grizzlies’ chances to cover in Game 2 with

BetAnySports’ 10-point spread. Memphis remains a very solid team on defense and while it is

doubtful that it plays well enough to get the SU win on the road, it will be able to tighten things

up enough to cover ATS.
