Golden State Warriors Betting

It all seems the Warriors have fully accepted the fact that making the playoffs is no longer viable. With Curry still sitting out with an injured hand and D’Angelo Russell going in and out of the lineup, the previously mighty Golden State has relied on their young players and journeyman to lead the charge. Update: The Warriors dropped to 9-31 after bowing anew to the Los Angeles Clippers, 109-100. Omari Spellman and Glen Robinson III recorded 17 points each to pace their team against Kawhi Leonard’s 36 points.

Players to Watch: Alec Burks (15.9 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 3.1 APG)

Eric Paschall (13.7 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 1.7 APG)

Damion Lee (12.4 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 2.2 APG)

Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Grizzlies are surprising people with their tenacity and competitiveness despite having a pretty young roster. Ja Morant has been the face of Memphis’ new grit-and-grind attitude, leading his team in points and assists. All of a sudden, the Grizz are steadily sneaking into the playoff picture after winning seven of their last 10 games coming into the game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday.

Players to watch: Jaren Jackson Jr. (18.0 PPG and 4.9 RPG)

Ja Morant (18.0 PPG and 6.8 APG)

Dillion Brooks (15.1 PPG and 3.3 RPG)

Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Picks

Bettors picking the Golden State Warriors in NBA future betting must be kicking themselves now after seeing the perennial Western Conference powerhouse fall mightily this season. As for the Grizz, this is supposed to be a rebuilding year for the franchise but Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. and the rest of their young guns have different plans.

Moneyline: Bet on the Grizzlies to win straight up. Memphis’ offense is blowing up as of late as they scored at least 119 points in their last four games – all resulting in wins. The Warriors will keep the score tight at the half, but the home team will eventually pull away in the payoff period.

ATS: The Grizzlies have not only claimed straight up wins but also collected ATS victories over the last four games. I expect Memphis to extend the streak by covering the 6.5 point spread.

TOTALs: The totals opened at 221 points. The Warriors will once again heavily lean on Glen Robinson and Omari Spellman, who were never known to be scorers. Golden State has also failed to score more than 100 points in the last four games. Despite the Grizzlies’ red-hot offense as of late, I still pick UNDER because of the Warriors’ lack of firepower.

Score Prediction: 115 – 110 Warriors
