Houston Rockets Betting
Russell Westbrook and James Harden just formed one of the most intimidating backcourt combinations in the NBA as the two MVPs give opposing teams a lot to think about. Along with Clint Capela to help them gather up boards, there is a sufficient amount of second-chance points for them to take in every game. They also have Eric Gordon back in the past games and he packs an extra punch in the offense along with Daniel House Jr. and Ben McLemore. Against the Grizzlies, they will capitalize on the strength of Harden and Westbrook as they try to overpower their opponents. They are coming off a bounce-back win against the Minnesota Timberwolves and hope to start another winning streak.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are on a roll recently and thanks to the play of young athletes Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. Both players have learned to close out games and had made the right decisions in the clutch. Dillon Brooks gives the added offensive boost while Jonas Valanciunas has been their anchor in the paint. Jae Crowder also provides the veteran leadership for the team and there are games that Brandon Clarke and DeAnthony Melton step up. This will be a good test for the Grizzlies on how their grit and grind attitude fares up against the flashy offense of the Rockets.
