I’m officially on a winning streak! I have won 100% my last 2 bets. You can not do better than that! I am on fire. I’m seeing things more clearly and I am going to keep bringing the heat with an easy pick today.
I have to ask something first. Am I missing something here? I do not understand how the Bulls can be favored against anyone. They have been terrible all year. The Grizzlies have been bad as well. But they made a lot of changes at the trade deadline and have almost a different team. The Grizzlies are also coming off a back to back, losing to the Spurs. The Grizzlies began the game with a lead but the Spurs came back. The Spurs made 61% of their 3 pointers and held on for a 1 point win. In the loss I thought the Grizzlies looked good. One of their new additions was Avery Bradley and he looked as good as ever. He made all of his 7 shots in the first quarter which was reminiscent of his days in Boston. He finished the game 15-21 with 33 points. Newly acquired forward Jonas Valunciunas came off the bench and added 23 points on 9-11 shooting.
The Bulls lack of experience will be a huge disadvantage tonight. It is a huge disadvantage for them almost every night. But I’m bringing it up now because the Grizzlies are filled with veterans that play good basketball. Players like Mike Conley, Joakim Noah, Avery Bradley and Jonas Valunciunas. Players that have been in the league playing at the highest level for an extended period of time on winning teams. The combined basketball IQ on the Grizzlies is so much higher than the Bulls. These are also players that play well on the defensive side of the ball. There is nobody that does that on the Bulls. That is why I am taking the Grizzlies to cover and win outright tonight.
