Grizzlies at Lakers picks and predictions
Lakers 114, Grizzlies 105
BET LAKERS (-110).
Los Angeles has been figuring out how to win without James lately, after going 4-8 in its 1st 12 games this season without the 19-time All-Star.
The Grizzlies have lost 3 straight without Morant in the lineup and should struggle to contain Davis, who is averaging 33.8 points over his last 4 games, in the absence of C Steven Adams (knee).
BET LAKERS -1.5 (-112).
There is no need to pay the higher price on the spread, unless you don’t think the Lakers would likely cover the short spread with a victory. Bet the moneyline and/or bet the total.
BET UNDER 224.5 (-112).
The Under is 5-1-1 in Memphis’ last 7 games. The Grizzlies are 20th in points scored over their last 3 contests (113 per game) and should continue to struggle offensively without their leading scorer in Morant.
The Under is 5-0 in Los Angeles’ last 5 at home and the Lakers have allowed the 6th-least amount of points over their last 3 contests (110.7 per game).
