Warriors vs. Grizzlies, Hawks vs. Wizards Game 6 Betting Lines – NBA Playoffs

Gambling911.com has your Warriors vs. Grizzlies and Hawks vs. Wizards Game 6 betting lines for the 2015 NBA Playoffs courtesy of Sportsbook.ag.

Eastern Conference – Semifinals – Game 6

Sportsbook.ag Line: Golden State -5.0, Total: 193.5

The Warriors look to eliminate the Grizzlies when they face them in Game 6 in Memphis Friday. The Grizzlies had a 2-1 lead in this series heading into Game 4, but the Warriors have now won two straight games after winning 98-78 as 10-point favorites in Golden State on Wednesday. Memphis has not scored 100 points or more in a single game this series and will likely need to reach that mark if the team is going to win on Friday.

The Grizzlies will need a big game from PG Mike Conley in this one. PG Stephen Curry is playing at a high level for the Warriors and Memphis needs Conley to hold his own against him. The Grizzlies bench also needs to be better, as it combined to score just 17 points in Game 5.

The Warriors are 23-8 against the spread after a blowout win by 15 points or more this season. The Grizzlies, however, are 16-7 against the spread after playing a game as a road underdog this season and they are also up against a Golden State group that is 2-11 against the spread in road games after having won two of its past three games on the year.

PF Marreese Speights (Calf) is out for the Warriors and SG Tony Allen (Hamstring) is likely to give it a go for the Grizzlies.

Hawks vs. Wizards Betting Line: Washington -2.5, Total 198

The Hawks look to close out the series when they head to Washington and take on the Wizards in Game 6 Friday. Washington almost stole Game 5 at Philips Arena, but ended up losing 82-81 at the buzzer as 7-point underdogs. Both teams were horrible offensively, as the Hawks shot just 41.0% from the floor and the Wizards shot 37.5%. The teams combined to shoot just 9-for-39 from the outside and also combined to have an embarrassing 42 turnovers as well.

Prior to the Hawks winning-and-covering in Washington in Game 4, the Wizards had won five of the past six games played between these teams at the Verizon Center SU. The Hawks are, however, 3-1-1 against the spread in their past five trips to Washington.

SG Kyle Korver is the player to watch in this one. He has been ice cold in the series and could really give Atlanta the boost it needs by knocking down some outside shots. The Hawks need him to take pressure off of his teammates. Atlanta is 15-6 against the spread on Friday nights this season and 18-8 against the spread after failing to cover in two of its past three games this year as well.

Washington, however, is 13-4 against the spread when revenging a close loss of three points or less versus an opponent over the past two seasons. The Wizards also face a Hawks team that is just 6-21 against the spread in the second round of the playoffs since 1996.
