Ja Morant - NBA Tips

Betseeker’s expert tipsters have you covered for the best NBA tips and predictions for every game of the NBA season.

Trends have begun to emerge in each second-round playoff series and there is plenty to attack with two games on today’s slate.

Best Bet

Grizzlies @ Warriors (10:30am)

Ja Morant Over 28.5 Points ($1.90)

Plenty has been made of the Warriors’ struggles defending Ja Morant and the injury to Gary Payton III certainly won’t help their cause.

Morant has been sensational so far this series. He’s notched 34 and a career-high 47 points in the first two games while shooting almost 47 per cent from the field.

The suspension to Dillon Brooks will ensure Ja’s usage rate remains sky-high and even a regression in his three-point shooting shouldn’t stop him from reaching 29 points here. 

Expect to see Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson continue to struggle to contain Morant in Game 3 as the Grizzlies look to secure a 2-1 advantage in the series.

Klay Thompson 20+ Points
Jordan Poole Over 4.5 Assists
Ja Morant 8+ Rebounds


Next Best

Celtics @ Bucks (5:30am)

Total Points Under 213.5 ($1.85)

This series features two of the best defensive teams in the league and so far, it’s lived up to the hype.

Milwaukee put together one of the better defensive gameplans you will see in Game 1 before Boston responded, restricting the Bucks to just 16.7 per cent shooting from deep.

Game 3 should see a much-improved offensive performance from Milwaukee but with so much defensive firepower on both sides, it still may not be enough to reach this total.

Boston and Milwaukee unders backers have been well rewarded in recent times. The total has gone under in four of the Celtics’ last five and in each of the Bucks’ last seven.

Back on their home floor, Milwaukee should control the game script and this makes the under all the more backable considering their last eight playoff games have gone under.

Same Game Multi

Brook Lopez 10+ Points
Jaylen Brown 6+ Rebounds
Jayson Tatum 6+ Assists

Tatum 6+ Assists / Ja Morant 30+ Points = $3.50
