We were back to winning form yesterday but there'll be just the one pick from me tonight. 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.

Warriors @ Grizzlies
As I said in my intro, all of tonight's games give me a degree of uncertainity. 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 are 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 reguarly 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.
