Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Golden State Warriors
After more than 900 days of sitting out due to 2 serious injuries, Klay Thompson finally returned on Sunday as the Warriors beat the Cavaliers 96-82 in the Bay. Despite a somewhat slower start to the game, Klay got back on track fairly quickly and finished the game with 17 points on 7-for-18 shooting. Stephen Curry once again led the way with 28 points. Interestingly enough Draymond Green was supposed to sit out the game due to a calf injury, but started just to be there for his teammate and immediately went out after a few seconds. He will not play tonight in Memphis according to latest reports, so the Warriors are a bit shorthanded on the defensive end. In head-to-head meetings with Memphis they are only 4-6 SU/ATS in the last 10 games, so tonight’s game will be a big test for them.
The Grizzlies are the hottest team in the NBA right now with 9 wins in a row and 14 in their last 17 games. Ja Morant is playing at a superstar level and is destined to make his first All-Star game this season. Memphis currently holds 4th spot in the West which would guarantee them home court advantage in the playoffs, however they have a pretty tough schedule coming up in the next couple of weeks so it’ll be interesting to see their position mid-February. They’ve covered in 6 games in a row and have beaten Western Conference opponents in 6 straight. Dillon Brooks is expected to miss yet another game with an ankle injury, while Steven Adams is still in quarantine, but could make a comeback any game now.
Not having Draymond in the game vs Cleveland didn’t hurt the Warriors, but that game was different as the whole crowd was into it and basically pushed the team to win that game. Tonight they are on the road facing one of the toughest teams to beat in the NBA right now. Memphis is 14-8 at home this season and has a flawless record over their last 9 games. Give me the Grizz at home to cover.
Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors Predictions & Odds
Memphis +1.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365
During their current win streak, the Grizzlies have scored 110 or more points in all but 1 game, so the offense has been clicking under the leadership of Ja Morant. The total has been set at 218.5 Point here and with the under cashing 7 times in the last 9 meetings, I have a feeling the defenses will play a huge part on the outcome. The under has cashed 5 times in a row for Memphis home games and in 4 of 5 when the Warriors come to town. Golden State road games in general tend to go under the total, with that happening in 12 of their lats 17 away from home. Having back Klay Thompson will be huge for them, it gives them another elite defender that can potentially slow down Morant. The total went under 218.5 points in the last 4 meetings between these 2 teams, so I’m feeling confident that’ll be the case in tonight’s game as well. The previous game played in Memphis finished 111-103 as well, so let’s back the under in tonight’s game.
