Friday April 28th Betting Recap

Picks for 4/28/23

10:30 PM EST
Rotation #549
Grizzlies +4.5 over Lakers (loss)
Memphis is on the verge of elimination but did a great job avoiding its last game. The Grizzles have great guards that can shoot from long range and dish it off for easy buckets. Memphis is the best team in the NBA at scoring in the paint. Los Angeles is not a good team when trying to force turnovers which could lead to a big night for the Memphis offense. We must remember that Memphis is the better overall team and was the number 2 seed in the West. Tonight’s game should be a battle, but Memphis can win and, at the very least, stay inside the number. Ja Morant needs to be the best version of himself to force a game seven. Take the Grizzlies.

7:10 PM EST
Rotation #905 
Braves -135 over Mets (win)
The Braves starting pitching has been excellent, while the Mets have struggled. The Braves’ slugging percentage against left-handed pitching is towards the league’s top, while the Mets are below average. Atlanta is the better overall team, with better pitching and hitting. Max Fried looks to add to his red-hot start as a starting pitcher.  Take the Braves.
