NBA Picks Thursday 28th March
Our picks for Thursday's NBA action
We were back to winning form yesterday but there'll be just the one pick from me today. It's a smaller slate of five games and they all give me the chills to a degree.
Current Record - 29-25-1 (win/lose/push) +1.39u
Sam's NBA picks will regularly be giving you picks for the day's hoop action. I recommend backing these individually but you're welcome to parlay them too. Each pick is staked at one unit.
Whilst we're here and talking about hoops, can we remind you that Oddschecker is the place for great March Madness content. Find our great articles here.
As I said in my intro, all of today's games give me a degree of uncertainty. That said, my only pick today has to be on this game. I'm sure how my heart feels about it but the stats would point towards Memphis covering the spread.
Firstly, form. Golden State is 6-4 in their last 10, having stuttered recently. The Grizzlies 5-5 record in the time span is one of the best amongst teams dwelling at the bottom of the standings.
I've been backing against the Warriors regularly this year and they're poor ATS, covering in only 41.7% of games. The Grizzlies, by contrast, have covered in 64.7% of games in which they've been a home court underdog. That stat, combined with a large 11.5 point swing, is the reason I'm taking Memphis tonight.
