NBA Betting Predictions – Grizzlies Seek to Stay on Winning Trail Against Jazz


The Memphis Grizzlies have played their way into position to put themselves into the playoff picture. In fact, they are already there. On Wednesday night they will have an opportunity to stay just ahead of the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns when they visit the Utah Jazz in NBA betting action that is slated to begin at 10:35 PM ET at the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City.

Utah has a record of 23-48 straight-up, which is the worst in the Western Conference. They are 30-38-3 against the basketball pointspread. Memphis doesn’t have a lot of room to breathe; with a 42-28 straight-up record (34-35-1 ATS) that is seventh best in the conference, but only slightly ahead of Dallas and Phoenix. There are three teams vying for the final two playoff spots in the West.

In the NBA betting odds that have been established on this game by the folks at Get That Bet, the Grizzlies are laying a healthy number on the road:

Memphis Grizzlies -8
Utah Jazz +8

Over 184 points -110
Under 184 points -110

Utah scored 32 points in the first half of the game between these teams that took place in Memphis last Wednesday. They got a little closer, but still lost 96-86 as an 11.5-point underdog in the basketball betting lines. The difference was the Grizzlies’ inside game, which produced 25 opportunities at the free throw line. When Memphis won the December 23 meeting, which also took place at the FedEx Forum, it was also by ten points.

Other than teams with absolute elite status, no one has been hotter than these Grizzlies over the past ten weeks. In fact, they have gone 27-9 straight-up since January 10, so it is no wonder that even in a conference that has been much deeper than the East, Memphis has steamrolled its way right into the playoff queue.

Get That Bet patrons know that the Jazz haven’t been able to get anything going, having lost twelve of their last 14 games. The only wins during that period came against Orlando and Philadelphia, which almost don’t even count. They have also only covered two of their last twelve games against the NBA betting lines.

What is particularly alarming about the Jazz is that they are sieve-like at times, having surrendered 55% to Detroit in their last game, a 20-point loss, and 63% in a game at San Antonio ten days ago. Memphis is not necessarily a high-octane team, but they get it done on the other end, allowing 94 points a game. The Grizzlies, by the way, have played six of their last seven games under the total in the NBA odds.
