Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies had their youth movement showing a lot of promise last season with Ja Morant in his second year in the league. Jaren Jackson Jr. will be back for a full season and his presence is very much missed. He will be in tandem with bruiser Steven Adams who came in a trade for Jonas Valanciunas. Dillon Brooks and Kyle Anderson each showed that they are worthy starters in the league as well. There are very interesting bench players that will seek to step up their game for the Grizzlies. Tyus Jones took over Morant’s position last year when he got injured and he was solid given the extra minutes.
Players to watch: J. Morant PG 63 GP 63 GS 32.6 MIN 19.1 PTS 0.9 OR 3.1 DR 4 REB 7.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 3.2 TO 1.4 PF 2.3 AST/TO 16.81 PER
D. Brooks SF 67 GP 67 GS 29.8 MIN 17.2 PTS 0.8 OR 2.1 DR 2.9 REB 2.3 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 1.8 TO 3.5 PF 1.3 AST/TO 12.19 PER

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets have a very promising future after they drafted LaMelo Ball last season as the third overall pick. He is expected to step it up with the departure of Devonte Graham and will be the full-time starting point guard. Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward add up to the team’s veteran presence along with newcomer Mason Plumlee getting the starting center nod. Kelly Oubre is expected to come off the bench along with Miles Bridges but the exciting player to monitor will be P.J. Washington. The power forward should have more freedom with the moves made by management in the off-season.
Players to Watch: T. Rozier SG 69 GP 69 GS 34.5 MIN 20.4 PTS 0.7 OR 3.7 DR 4.4 REB 4.2 AST 1.3 STL 0.4 BLK 1.9 TO 1.7 PF 2.3 AST/TO 17.15 PER
