Chicago Bulls vs Memphis Grizzlies 10/25/2019 – The Chicago Bulls, still licking their wounds after blowing a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter of a 126-125 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, will attempt to claim their first win against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday at FedEx Forum. Top online sportsbooks are predicting another close contest for the Bulls, who are +1 underdog entering the match.

Chicago Bulls Betting

The Bulls thought a win was on the bag on Wednesday until the Hornets busted out a furious rally in the closing minutes to complete a come-from-behind result. Chicago shot 46.6 percent from the field but only made nine out of 30 3-point attempts (30.0 percent). Lauri Markkanen was a dominant force all game long, recording 35 points and 17 rebounds in 34 minutes of play. Rookie guard Coby White and veteran forward Thaddeus Young added 17 apiece for the Bulls.

Players to Watch Lauri Markkanen (35.0 PPG and 17.0 RPG), Coby White (17.0 PPG and 7.0 APG) and Thaddeus Young (17.0 PPG and 3.0 RPG).

Memphis Grizzlies Betting

After taking a slight lead at the break and most of the third quarter, the Grizzlies collapsed in the second half as the Heat shooters began to find their stroke. Anemic three-point shooting also killed Memphis vs. Miami, as they converted just five of 32 attempts from the three-point line. Morant recorded 14 points on 6-for-12 field goal shooting to go along with four rebounds and four assists in his NBA debut. Jaren Jackson Jr. led the team in scoring with 17 points while Tyrus Jones added 15 points and 7 assists.

Players to Watch: Jaren Jackson Jr. (17.0 PPG and 3.0 RPG), Ja Morant (14.0 PPG and 4.0 RPG) and Tyrus Jones (15.0 PPG and 7.0 RPG)

Chicago Bulls vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Picks

Bet on NBA games now to win some serious cash. The Bulls are 7-3 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Grizzlies. Chicago averaged 104.50 points per game while shooting 51.50 percent from the field, while Memphis averaged 103.0 points on 50.2 field goal clip.

Moneyline: Memphis is -1 favorites to win the game as press time with a 53.0 percent chance of winning, according to the ESPN basketball power index. The Grizzlies got blown out in their last assignment, and it will be difficult for them to beat the Bulls on their home floor after that 19-point season-opening loss.

ATS: Memphis has a 3-7 ATS record in the last 10 head-to-head games with Chicago. Again, Morant could put up big numbers in his second regular-season game, but I think the Bulls have more firepower to win by double-digits.

TOTALs: Chicago scored 125 points in their last game and has a 6-4 O/U record in the last 10 games with Memphis. The Grizz recorded 120 points in the opener and also has a 6-4 O/U slate in the last 10 head-to-head outings. The O/U total for this game is set at 218 points. Chicago is going to be a high-scoring team with Zach Lavine, Markkanen and Otto Porter all capable of averaging 20 PPG. As for Memphis, the jury is out if they can really become a consistent 110 points per game team. The Grizzlies might be a better defensive unit, but scoring the basketball appears to be their biggest weakness going forward.

Score Prediction: 114-103 Bulls
