Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies Game 1 Preview
The No. 3 seeded Golden State Warriors (3-2 ATS) defeated the Denver Nuggets in five games in the first round. The three-guard offense was especially hot in the first four games of the series. Steph Curry made up for an off-shooting night for his team in the Game 5 clincher at home. The Warriors averaged the most points (118.0) of any team in the first round of the playoffs this year.
The No. 2 seeded Memphis Grizzlies used three double-digit comebacks to eliminate the Minnesota Timberwolves in six games. It was the first playoff series win for Memphis since 2015, and the first in the Ja Morant era. It was not always pretty, but the Grizzlies got timely performances from Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks to help out some of Morant’s lesser shooting nights.
The Grizzlies were 3-1 against the Warriors this season, though most of those matchups were earlier in the season when the Warriors still did not have Klay Thompson back from injury. Thompson played in just one game against Memphis, and it was his second game back since his injury in the summer of 2019.
Both teams have an MVP candidate at point guard and rank highly on defense. Both have some great three-point shooters, though Golden State certainly has the edge there. It is unusual for the No. 2 seed to be an underdog in Game 1 at home, but between the gaps in experience and quality of play in the first round, it is understandable why the Warriors are a slight favorite here. This has a chance to be the most interesting series in the second round if these teams play up to their potential.
Other Promos for bet365 Users
For existing users, there are daily boosts that give you better odds for various markets. But something unique for bet365 users is the NBA Early Payout Offer promo. For the rest of the playoffs, any moneyline bet on a team that takes a 20-point lead will be paid out as a winner, even if that team goes on to lose the game.
Do you think Memphis has another 20-point comeback ready? If it does happen, at least any bet on Golden State’s moneyline for that game will be paid as a winner. If you have the team’s moneyline as part of a parlay, that leg will be marked as a win as long as the team leads by 20 points at any point in the game. Not many sportsbooks offer this type of insurance in case of an epic collapse.
This bet365 promo is available to new and eligible customers. Only pre-game straight bets and parlays qualify.
