Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies went on a slight makeover as the Memphis front office went down to work at the trade deadline. And as they adapt to their modified roster, the Grizzlies will try to keep their focus on winning and build more buffer on their way to clinching a spot in the Playoffs. They also seek to regain their stance after the Philadelphia 76ers sent them crashing back to earth on Friday. 119-107, and served them just their second defeat in eight games.

Washington Wizards Betting
Bradley Beal’s personal streak of scoring at least 30 points was halted at seven games on Friday. But the surge spoiler failed to heap frustration on Beal as the Wizards star guard still stole the spotlight by coming through the clutch to rescue Washington over the Mavs. While the squeaker gave them their third win in four games, the Wizards still have a lot of catching up to do before booking a comfortable seat on the postseason flight.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks
The Grizzlies hold an even record of 26 wins and 26 losses for the eight spot in the West. The Wizards, on the other hand, are way below .500 at ninth place in the East with a 18-32 log in. Memphis bossed around Washington in their last meeting in December, fashioning out a 128-111 domination. While the visitors are still at the adjustment phase from the changes they had last Thursday, Ja Morant and the rest of the remaining young Grizzlies will still show that they can take care of business while they integrate the new recruits into their system.
Moneyline: The Grizzlies are favorites away from home with a -125 price to win. The Wizards, although underdogs at home, are not too far behind to defy a +105 match winner price.
ATS: Memphis is pegged to win this match by less than a deuce as the spread is offered at -1.5 for the visiting team.
TOTALs: The total line is placed with even prices at over/under 240 points.
Score Prediction: 121 – 114 Grizzlies
