Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Memphis Grizzlies failed to make it a three-game winning streak after losing to the Phoenix Suns in their most recent game. It was a blowout as the Suns took over, 128-97. Ja Morant was able to only produce 12 points and he only played 26 minutes. The game was decided early on and the starters have to rest to look forward to the next game. The Grizzlies canโ€™t afford to lose to the Dallas Mavericks and it will be critical to hold their position over them. This team needs Morant to be a better leader as the team will not be playing with offensive guard Dillon Brooks against the Mavs.

Players to watch: J. Morant PG 18 GP 18 GS 30.2 MIN 18.9 PTS 0.8 OR 2.3 DR 3.2 REB 7.8 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 3.1 TO 1.5 PF 2.5 AST/TO 18.72 PER

J. Valanciunas C 21 GP 20 GS 27.5 MIN 16.2 PTS 3.4 OR 7.6 DR 11 REB 2 AST 0.6 STL 0.7 BLK 2.1 TO 3.2 PF 0.9 AST/TO 21.97 PER

Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks have been surging but their four-game winning streak was just snapped in their last game against the Portland Trail Blazers, 118-121. Luka Doncic did whatever he can giving the team 44 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Kristaps Porzingis tallied 18 points and eight rebounds while Dorian Finney-Smith had 14. The Mavericks are already getting up the standings and opposing teams should be wary of this team who looks to be in playoff mode this early season. This is going to be a critical time for the Mavericks to get back on the winning track once again.

Players to Watch: L. Doncic PG 27 GP 27 GS 35.3 MIN 29.1 PTS 0.9 OR 7.7 DR 8.6 REB 9.4 AST 1 STL 0.7 BLK 4.2 TO 2.2 PF 2.2 AST/TO 26.88 PER
