Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Memphis Grizzlies are on a high after defeating the Lakers recently. In what could very well be one of the first-round playoff matchups. Ja Morant showed up LeBron James and immediately earned praise from the three-time NBA champion. Morant finished with 27 points and 14 assists in that 105-88 win. He got plenty of help from Dillon Brooks (24 points) and Jonas Valanciunas (22 points) and the trio will be in focus on Monday. However, defense needs work. They are allowing opposing teams 114.7 points per game, something they cannot afford against a team that has Trae Young.

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks are coming off a big win over the Portland Trail Blazers Trae Young exploding anew. He ended up with 25 markers and 15 assists and got help from John Collins and DeAndre Hunter. Young should be a marked man against the Grizzlies. Atlanta could do well if they improve defensively. They are allowing the opposition to score 119.1 points per game, something Memphis could take advantage of.
