Ja Morant (MEM) Over 8.5 1Q Points/Grizzles ML

The Grizzlies have been popular in the gambling community for their success in the first quarter market all season long, and that definitely has to do with star player Ja Morant. In the first two games, Ja came out and scored 15 & nine points, being aggressive early. Morant will likely end up playing the whole quarter, with with both teams placing a lot of emphasis on pace, I’m expecting plenty of opportunity. As for the Grizzlies, I think they are the better team here. The Timberwolves were able to sneak a win in Game 1, but Memphis looked much stronger in Game 2, and I think there defense will prevail.

Draymond Green (GSW) Over 0.5 3PM/Over 0.5 Blocks

After having some success with the Caruso Steal/3 Combo yesterday, I decided to continue that momentum into today. Draymond Green said it himself on twitter recently, it's about time of year Draymond starts shooting 40% from beyond the arc. In his first two playoffs games, he went 1-2 & 1-3, hitting this number in both games. On the defensive side of the ball, Draymond had three & one block in the first two games, and averages 1.1 on the season. Draymond will continue to get wide open looks from beyond the arc, all we’re asking for is one of those to fall in.
