Memphis Grizzlies vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
The wide NBA spread indicates bookmakers’ confidence in the Pacers against a team that is coming off a tiring game against the Lakers. Of course, the Grizzlies’ upset wins against the Nets and the Jazz should serve as a warning that this team is far from being pushovers.
Moneyline: The Pacers are 2-1 against the Grizzlies in their last three outings, but the Grizz sneaked in a 106-103 win in their last head-to-head confrontation. Malcolm Brogdon’s return from injury will be huge for Indiana since they are getting back their top scorer and playmaker. If he’s still not available, then the Pacers are in for a tough battle but still win it by a close margin.
ATS: Expect the Grizzlies to come up with another solid defensive showing against the Pacers, holding them below their season averages and then covering a 9-point spread.
TOTALs: The total for this game opened at 217.5 points. UNDER should be the wiser basketball over/under pick since the total has fluctuated just between 200 to 215 points in their last three meetings.
Score Prediction: 107-100 Pacers
