Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

The Warriors got a bit of a break in their last game as they faced a shorthanded Philadelphia 76ers team, coming out on top 119-107 on Wednesday. They head to Memphis to face a Grizzlies team that’s been in a similar situation for most of the season. These two teams faced each other about 2 weeks go and to the surprise of many it was the Grizzlies that came out on top by 9 points at home. The sense of urgency has increased quite a bit on the Warriors side of things coming into tonight’s game though, so I’m not really sure if Memphis can repeat that result here. Last night’s Jazz loss gives Stephen Curry and co. an opportunity to get within a game of the 10th spot if they can sneak out a win here. They’ve covered the spread 5 times in their last 7 games, plus as favorites they’re 16-10 SU for the season.

Given all the bad luck they’ve had so far this season with injuries, the Grizzlies are actually exceeding expectations. However, it would appear that their good luck charm is coming to an end slowly as they’re currently on a 3-game losing streak. Against teams from the Pacific Division they have just 3 wins in 10 games, while in games played at the FedEx Forum they’ve won just 5 times on 22 occasions. Jaren Jackson Jr. is the only notable player left from the starting line-up that played for most of last season. He’s averaging over 24 points per game over his last 9 games, however his efficiency has gone down quite a bit as teams are focusing more on him now that he’s the number one scoring option for this team. Memphis does have a run of 9 straight games of covering the spread vs the Warriors currently active, but I’m afraid that is coming to an end tonight.

Golden State Warriors Point Spread Prediction

Golden State Warriors -5.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

The Warriors need to pile on some wins before the all-star break if they still plan on making the postseason. Beating teams like the Grizzlies is an ideal opportunity to achieve just that. They’ll be extra motivated to avenge that loss from earlier in the season and end a 3-game losing streak in head-to-head meetings here. Take Golden State to cover the spread.

Warriors vs Grizzlies Total Points Prediction: Under 225.5

Under 225.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

The grit and grind Memphis Grizzlies that we came to know and love in the early 2000s seem to be back. And that’s more out of necessity than anything else because injuries have taken out over 80 points per game worth of players for them this season. This team is now forced to rely on defense and a slower tempo to win games, there’s a notable drop in pace of play over their last 10 games where they’re averaging 97.5 possessions per game which ranks only 23rd in the NBA. They’re a staggering 6-16 on the O/U in home games this season, with that bet landing in 9 of their last 11 at FedEx Forum. The Warriors do fancy an over as they love to score and push the tempo, but I’m not sure if that’ll be possible with the amount of players they have missing here. They were able to slow things down against Philadelphia and come out on top by double-digits, I anticipate that being the case in tonight’s game as well. The under has cashed in 4 of the last 6 head-to-head, we have a modest projected total of 225.5 points here. With Memphis averaging just 104.8 points in their last 5 outings, I think backing the under is the way to go here.
