Atomic is recharged and ready to go with TWO articles for today's NBA slate! Here's the first one...
Atomic's NBA Saturday Best Bet #1: Warriors @ Grizzlies - 3/18
Golden State Warriors @ Memphis Grizzlies
I will be riding with Desmond Bane tonight love this spot for him especially on PointsBet as this is 28.5 on a ton of other books so regardless we are securing some nice value on this one as Books are undecided on what to put him. Bane is over in his last 18 out of 32 games where he records 29 or more minutes & in his last 7 out of 10 if you filter for only games without Morant like tonight. The Golden State Warriors have the #28 DRTG on the road so their defense has not traveled this team has just not been the same team on the road we saw them give up 134 points to the hawks last night. Andrew Wiggins the Warriors #1 perimeter defender is out in this one which will leave Donte as the only person to guard Bane he is a slightly above average defender but still not the ideal best perimeter defender on a team he is a bit limited by his size as well.
The Warriors are giving up the #7 most points per game to shooting guards L30D (+2.79) more than their average Bane has averaged 21.3 PTS & 5.5 AST w/o Morant. Both the Warriors & the Grizzlies are Top 7 in the NBA in pace which will mean we should get a ton of possessions in this one which will give Bane even more opportunities to score making this an even greater matchup for Bane. So all in all we are getting a good matchup as mentioned previously , a high hit - rate w/o Morant & a projected close game with a 1.5 spread & a fast pace projected game which will only give Bane even more chances to score this is just too good of a spot for him tonight as long as he can convert some shots.
DESMOND BANE O27.5 PTS+AST @ -110
