Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction
In this game, look for Memphis to take care of business at home as they come up with the win and cover the spread. I do not see any edge in taking a bet on the over-under.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Memphis Grizzlies ATS
A key matchup to watch in this game will be how the Clippers handle the fast-paced style of Memphis. In most cases, when playing up-tempo teams, Los Angeles limits games to four possessions below expectation.
The main reason I am looking for Memphis to cover the spread is their defensive unit. On average they hold good offensive teams to 3 fewer points per possession than expected. Given that they too are a quality offensive team, I look for them to pull away late in this game.
I don’t see anyone on the Clippers roster who will be able to stay with Ja Morant for four quarters. I am expecting a big night from the Grizzlies point guard.
