BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Grizzlies +8.5 (-110)
- Warriors vs Grizzlies Over/Under: 217.5 points
The Grizzlies (59-33-1 ATS) are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against the Warriors, even as they are 5-15 SU in their last 20 matches when playing on the road against the Dubs. The total has gone OVER in eight of Memphis’ last 10 outings played in May.
The Warriors (45-43-4 ATS) went 12-3 SU in their last 15 contests but are only 1-6 ATS in their last seven, even as the total has gone OVER in eight of Golden State’s last 12 matches played in May. Golden State still has Stephen Curry, who averages 25.5 points and 6.3 assists per game, to lead them along with Klay Thompson (20.4 ppg) and top reserve Jordan Poole (18.5 ppg), while forward Draymond Green (7.5 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 7apg) anchors the Dubs’ defense as they try to close out the series.
Memphis blew out Golden State, `134-95, in Game 5 at their home floor to save their season but it might not be enough to steer oddsmakers in convincing that they can tie the series with a Game 6 victory on the road. With All-Star Ja Morant (27.4 ppg) still out with a knee injury, the Grizzlies will need another explosive performance from Dillon Books (18.4 ppg), Desmond Bane (18.2 ppg) and Jaren Jackson Jr (16.3 ppg) if they want to extend their season to a Game 7.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 110 Golden State Warriors – 105 Memphis Grizzlies
- Over/Under — OVER 217.5 points
