BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Grizzlies +4 (-110)
- Mavericks vs Suns Over/Under: 218.5 points
The Grizzlies (58-33-1 ATS) are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games at home and are 4-1 ATS in their last five matches. The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Memphis’ last 15 matches against Golden State, even as the Grizzlies are 5-0 ATS in their last five outings when playing at home against the Warriors.
The Warriors (45-42-4 ATS) went 12-2 SU in their last 14 contests but are just 1-5 ATS in their last six matches, even as the total has gone OVER in seven of Golden State’s last 10 outings. Golden State is 0-5 ATS in its last five games when playing on the road against Memphis, but the Dubs are carrying a 101-98 victory in Game 4 to move just a win away from reaching the conference finals.
Memphis lost the last two games of the series and it will get more difficult if top scorer Ja Morant (knee) cannot heal in time to save their season. If Morant does not show up on the floor for Game 5, the Grizzlies will have to rely more on Desmond Bane (18.2 ppg) and Tyus Jones, Morant’s replacement in the starting lineup, who had 19 points, six rebounds and five assists in Game 4.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 106 Golden State Warriors – 100 Memphis Grizzlies
- Over/Under — OVER 218.5 points
A look at last time’s predictions:
Devin Booker scored 28 points on 11-of-20 shooting while DeAndre Ayton had 20 points and nine rebounds, as the Phoenix Suns found a way to win despite a subpar game from Chris Paul to crush the Dallas Mavericks, 110-80, and take a 3-2 lead in their Western Conference semifinals series.
