NBA Betting Picks for 10/28/21 Banker and Parlay


By @SpreadAstaire

What a great streak to start the season. Wagering against NBA odds is tough, so you always
need to enjoy when things are going well. Here is a banker and parlay. hopefully once again we
will be enjoying success at the end of the evening.

Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Golden State Warriors are off to a great start this season, winning their first four games. They
look to extend that streak tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies, the team that knocked them
out of the playoffs last season. Memphis returns mostly the same players and Golden State has
been buoyed by the additions of new Nemanja Bjelica and Otto Porter Jr. Bjelica fits in perfect
next to Draymond. He is the stretch 4 that the Warriors have been looking for in the last few
years. Bjelica has the size and strength to play defense in the post. On offense he is able to
provide space and gravity with his ability to sink three-point shots. This new versatility on the
offensive and has been a boon for Draymond Green. Green has another big to pack the paint
with him defensively, but the Warriors still have the space to operate freely on the offensive end.

Memphis is a great team, and we will be looking to back them a lot this season. However tonight
and they are in a very tough schedule spot. After spending three days in LA, they flew to
Portland last night and played a physical, fast-paced battle in a loss to the Blazers. Now they
take the short flight to San Francisco to take on a rested Warriors team who will not be taking
them lightly.

In a more neutral situation, I think the Grizzlies could give the Warriors a test, but tonight I feel
the Warriors will be able to run away with a victory against this tired Memphis team. The
situation (Warriors revenge) and the spot (Memphis tired from travel) dictate that the Warriors is
the play.

Banker: Golden State Warriors – 5.5 at -120 (1.85)

2-Team Parlay

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks

The San Antonio Spurs are coming off a rough overtime loss were missed free throws in the
fourth quarter sent them to overtime. From there they weren’t able to keep pace with the Los
Angeles Lakers. Fatigue can be a slight issue here, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been
running a deeper rotation to start the season, so the Spurs should be somewhat fresh even off
an overtime.

Dallas is coming off of victories, one in Toronto and then at home against the Rockets.
Speaking of deep rotations, Jason Kidd played all 15 members of his roster against the
Rockets! It is a new approach to say the least, and it’ll be interesting to see how this experiment
works out. As the new head coach, Kidd is obviously tinkering with all the different lineup
possibilities, but sometimes his experimentation can lead to bad combinations of players on the
floor.

This allows their opponents to make runs against a mismatched lineup combination. While the
Mavericks have the talent advantage, we must give the coaching advantage to the Spurs.

Dallas is a good team, but I struggle laying points against with them while they’re still currently
figuring out their rotations. The Spurs are a well-coached team, with a developing, youthful
roster. They can get up and down the floor and keep pace with even the quickest teams. I
believe the Spurs will keep it close, that’s why I’m taking the six points of NBA odds.

Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies

As mentioned earlier, I do believe the Warriors are catching a tired Memphis team in a game
that has blowout potential. Blowouts most often go under the projected total NBA odds.
Because I do believe the Warriors will win by margin here, I think the Grizzlies will struggle to
put up points and therefore lwe will have a low-scoring game. We’re attacking this game two
different ways! Take the under.

2-Team Parlay: San Antonio Spurs + 6/Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies under 233
at +215 (3.15)
