Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Picks

Ja Morant’s back injury is going to be a big blow for the Grizzlies and the NBA betting punters rooting for this ball club. The rookie is averaging 18.6 points and 6.4 assists before being listed week-to-week due to back spasms.

Moneyline: The Grizzlies are surprisingly 2-1 against the Timberwolves in the last three games. Unfortunately for the road team, any hope of repeating their 137-121 victory over the Wolves last Nov. 6 dashed away following the injury to Morant.

ATS: The Wolves should be the popular pick to cover the 9-point spread. Without Morant and possibly Brandon Clarke, the Grizzlies won’t have enough firepower to prevent a 10+ point blowout at the hands of the Wolves.

TOTALs: The total opened at 233 points. Minnesota is the 7th best offensive team in the NBA at 114.06 PPG. The Grizzlies aren’t lagging much at 108.94 PPG. While the Grizzlies should easily score more than 110 points in this game, I doubt the Grizzlies can ever exceed the 100-point mark without their No.1 playmaker. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 114-103 Wolves
