Memphis Grizzlies vs New York Knicks Betting Picks
Nobody expected the Grizzlies to perform this good this year, not after trading their core guys over the last 9 months. NBA future betting odds for the Grizz are not so good, but Ja Morant and company are proving that they are more than ready to take on the next challenge.
Moneyline: Bet on the Grizzlies at -127. Memphis is playing at a high level and I don’t expect a sub .500 team like the Knicks will halt this momentum.
ATS: Pick the Grizz to cover the 2.5 point spread. Memphis is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games.
TOTALs: Drop your bet on the UNDER at 224 points. The Grizzlies are winning games with their defense, so I expect it to be a slow-paced ballgame against the Knicks.
Score Prediction: 110 – 103 Grizzlies
