OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has an NBA pick Wednesday is on Golden State (+10.5) to Memphis.
Reasoning: I might as well but and paste the last few comp plays on the Warriors that I have written because this is going to be a similar write-up. I have been backing Golden State a lot in this spot of late even though they have nothing at all to play for. It’s tough to trust a team that has struggled and is well below. 500 like Golden State is and that’s why I can’t back them in any premium play sort of a way. But to fully disregard today’s talented visitors even on a back-to-back is something that I cannot do.
Memphis is certainly competent and fighting for their playoff lives. But the Grizzlies aren’t exactly a great team and without Rudy Gay can’t exactly be trusted either. No doubt Zach Randolph has stepped up this season in a big-time way and at times looks like a superstar but former All-Star David Lee should hold his own in the post and the other three talented leaders on the Warriors in Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and Dorell Wright are very good as well.
It is a tough spot for Golden State after just playing in Oklahoma City last night and traveling here to Elvis land but the Warriors don’t have any pressure on them and have the upside and ability to come out and keep this game very tight.
There is always a chance that a good Memphis team could blast the tired Warriors but the Grizz aren’t anything more than good and at this gaudy number I’ll take my chances.
Top expert pick on this game: Golden State
For more information: Matt Rivers says I am in a zone that very few, if any, will ever experience. Things have been off the charts great and I promise you that it is far from being a fluke. I feel as if I have a crystal ball and tomorrow’s newspaper and today is the biggest day of all. Yesterday was 400,000* Wichita State by a billion and today I raise that bar even higher!
500,000* Creighton-Oregon and a 300,000* Santa Clara-Iona are on the docket for Humpday. I gave you a winner with the Blue Jays in the first game of this best of three series and just nailed back-to-back games on the Gaels against Buffalo and ETSU. An absolutely magical day is upon me as I completely destroy the Crookie and snatch a jaw dropping 800,000* of more profit! Make the bookie cry a Rivers
