BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Grizzlies +2.5 (-110)
- Nets vs Grizzlies Over/Under: 236 points
Memphis (46-26 ATS) is 15-5 ATS in its last 20 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference while going 8-1 SU in its last outings at home. The total has gone OVER in five of the Grizzlies’ last six contests against an opponent in the Atlantic Division, even as Memphis is 3-6 ATS in its last nine matches played on a Wednesday
The Nets (29-40-3 ATS) are 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight games on the road but are 3-9 SU in their last 12 matches against an opponent in the Western Conference. Brooklyn is carrying the momentum of winning back-to-back games and six of its last seven, including a 114-106 victory over the Utah Jazz on Monday, so expect the Brooklyn Nets vs Memphis Grizzlies odds and picks to be a high scoring game with All Stars Kevin Durant (29.6 points per game, 7.2 rebounds per game, 6.1 assists per game) and Kyrie Irving (27.7 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 5.3 apg) leading the attack.
The Grizzlies have won five of their last six games, including a 122-98 blowout of the Houston Rockets on Sunday to remain ahead of the Golden State Warriors (47-25) in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. But Memphis needs second leading scorer Desmond Bane, who averages 17.9 points per game, to step up in order to get past Brooklyn possibly without All-Star guard Ja Morant, who is coping with a knee injury.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 122 Brooklyn Nets – 114 Memphis Grizzlies
- Over/Under — UNDER 236 points
