Memphis Grizzlies vs Dallas Mavericks Betting Picks
The Grizzlies have emerged as a surprise playoff contender in a year when they are supposed to rebuild and tank. However, the outstanding play of Ja Morant and his talented supporting casts have made the Grizzlies not only a favorite among basketball fans but also NBA betting enthusiasts.
Moneyline: Bet on the Grizzlies at +180. I am smelling a freshly-cooked upset in the air. Jonas Valanciunas is listed probable but he should be good to go for Wednesday’s ballgame. His match-up vs. Kristaps Porzingis is going to be the focal point of the match.
ATS: Pick the Grizzlies to cover the 5-point spread. Memphis has covered the spread in five of their last six games.
TOTALs: Pick the UNDER at 229 points. The Mavs aren’t as explosive offensively as compared to the games in which they have Doncic. The Grizz are also a very good defensive squad as of late, so expect the totals score to play between 100 to 110 points.
Score Prediction: 110 – 103 Grizzlies
