The Jazz suffered two consecutive losses against the Milwaukee Bucks 122-118 and the Indiana Pacers 121-102. Mike Conley Jr. has been ineffective in those games, averaging just 5.5 points, 4 rebounds, and 7 assists in 28 minutes of play. Utah’s defense was also gone as they allowed both teams to score more than 120 points.
Players to Watch: Donovan Mitchell (25.6 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 3.7 APG), Bojan Bogdanovic (21.5 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 2.2 APG), Mike Conley (14.3 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 4.7 APG)
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are on a five-game losing streak but have been really feisty in their last three outings, especially against a couple of L.A teams. The Grizz lost to the Lakers by only one point, 109-108, and the Clippers by two-points, 119-121, four days after. Ja Morant has been amazing in those games, averaging 23.0 points and 8.5 assists.

Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Picks
Under normal circumstances, the Jazz would have been a double-digit NBA betting pick entering the match against a sub. 500 team. However, what we are talking here is a Grizzlies team that has really pushed elite-level basketball teams to the limit, and of course, pulled off an upset over the Jazz weeks ago.
Moneyline: The Grizzlies are actually 2-1 SU against the Jazz in their last three meetings. Unfortunately for Memphis, I am not expecting them to repeat over Utah. Expect a big game from Donovan Mitchell and Conley in this game.
ATS: The Grizzlies have been really scrappy against elite opponents. And because of that, I feel they can really compete with the Jazz down the very end, losing by just two-possession baskets.
TOTALs: The total opened at 217 points. The Jazz has been really conceding a lot of points, while the Grizzlies have been scoring a ton lately. I pick OVER.
Score Prediction: 115-109 Jazz
