Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The Golden State Warriors hit a bit of a hiccup early in the season but seem to have recovered.

So what kinds of bets can NBA sportsbook players make this Monday night? Let’s check on the odds to see where the NBA basketball betting best value lies.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Golden State Warriors – Monday, December 17th

Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California
Stream: NBA League Pass
NBA Basketball Betting Odds:
The Grizzlies pounce into this Monday night matchup sporting a 16-13 record that manages to rank them 1st in the Southwest Division. But in the Western Conference Memphis finds themselves in the No. 6 spot. Although they’re currently in the running for a spot in the playoffs, Memphis will surely want to solidify their playoff standing in the coming weeks. Unfortunately they’re pegged against one of the more talented teams in the conference this evening. The last time these two met Golden State won in a landslide 117-101. And since the Grizzlies are 3-7 in their last 10 against Golden State, it’s safe to say that they don’t bring a lot of momentum into tonight’s contest.
Players to Watch: Mike Conley (20.4 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 6.5 apg), Marc Gasol (16.3 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 4.1 apg), and Jaren Jackson Jr. (13.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.2 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 20-10 record that ranks them 1st in the Pacific Division. Currently ranking No. 2 in the Western Conference, Golden State is focused on retaking that No. 1 spot in the West. They shouldn’t have too hard of a time doing so, seeing as how the No. 1 seeded Nuggets own just a ½ a game lead over Golden State. And since the Warriors are facing the Grizzlies at home this evening, they should be able to close that gap effortlessly. This is because the Warriors offense is vastly superior to Memphis’ own as Golden State puts up 116.1 per game while Memphis sits at 102.5.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.3 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.7 apg), Kevin Durant (29.0 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 6.2 apg), and Klay Thompson (22.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 1.9 apg).
