Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Grizzlies are taking this season as a nurturing period for their young guys to grow and build a new grit-and-grind culture that would one day pay off in the future. On Monday, everybody had a glimpse of that promising future for Memphis, as Jaren Jackson Jr. recorded 24 points and Dillon Brooks added 21 to spoil Tony Parker’s retirement ceremony at AT&T Center. Jonas Valanciunas scored 18 points and grabbed 12 of Memphis’ 47 rebounds in the night.
Players to Watch: Ja Morant (17.8 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 5.2 APG), Jaren Jackson, Jr. (14.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 1.6 APG), Dillon Brooks 13.5 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 2.0 APG)
Charlotte Hornets Betting
For the Charlotte Hornets to start winning again, head coach James Borrego believes his players must not allow opponents to go off to another strong start. Letting teams jump on them early has been the problem for Charlotte over these last three games. In Sunday’s 114-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, the Hornets allowed the Sixers to build on a double-digit lead in the first half before taking a slight edge at the break. In the second half, the Sixers built another big lead, and once again, the Hornets made another furious push down the stretch but they ran out of time once more.
Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (17.9 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 7.6 APG), Terry Rozier (15.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 5.1 APG), P.J. Washington (13.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Memphis Grizzlies vs Charlotte Hornets Betting Picks
The Hornets are 7-3 in their last 10 head-to-head games with the Grizzlies. In those games, Charlotte averaged 105.30 points on 44.71 percent FG shooting. They also limited Memphis to just 94 points on 41 percent FG clip. Then again, the lineups on both teams have drastically changed over the last 10 months, with stars Mike Conley Jr., Marc Gasol, and Kemba Walker now playing for their new teams.
Moneyline: The Hornets will end their three-game losing skid, thanks to another explosive outing from DeVonte Graham and rookie PJ Washington.
ATS: The Hornets will take an ATS win, though it’s really hard to predict NBA spread betting on this kind match-up.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 220 points. The lack of firepower on both teams should be enough reason to pick under.
Score Prediction: 103-98 Hornets
