Two Western Conference teams will be battling out when the Dallas Mavericks play host to the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies had the day off on Friday, while the Mavericks played a game.
Dallas started off as a 6 point favorite and that number is now down to 5.5. The total has gone from 215 to 219.5.
The Grizzlies have been an up-and-down team this year. They have yet to play very consistently.
They come into this game having won their last three games. Making it a fourth in a row will be no easy task when they go against this Mavericks team.
This was a team that I thought could be pretty good this year. I did not put them on the level as some of the contenders, but I also did not peg them toward the bottom. I could definitely see them being a playoff team.
They have been led all year long by their best player, Ja Morant. As if you didn’t know already, but this kid is something special, folks.
Memphis dismantled the OKC Thunder on Thursday by a score of 152-79. There is beating someone and then there is totally kicking their ass. It will be interesting to see how they play one game removed from that total blowout.
A bunch of different people stepped up in the win over the Thunder. When you score that many points, you expect the offensive production to be very high. Things will not come as easy on Saturday when they face good defense in Dallas.
The Mavericks remind me a bit of the Grizzlies. They are a good team, but they have yet to hit their stride yet. I do feel that as the year goes on, they will be more consistent.
Dallas currently has a record of 11-10, which puts them in 5th place in the Western Conference. The aforementioned Memphis Grizzlies are one spot ahead of them.
This is a team that a lot of people were very high on before the year and for good reason. I truly believe that they have some good pieces around Luka Doncic. I am not sure if they are championship-caliber yet, but I do feel they could get there in a few years.
The Mavs lost to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday by a score of 107-91. They beat New Orleans when they met on Wednesday.
When you score under 100 points in the modern NBA, you cannot expect to win ball games. Also, how do you score that few points against that bad of a team?
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Grizzlies are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games.

- The Mavericks are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games at home.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams have to start playing more consistently than they have. I expect strong efforts from both sides.
It is very important that Dallas flushes the terrible loss against the Pelicans and focuses on this game with Memphis. With that said, I am not all that confident in them taking care of business against a good Grizzlies team.
I feel that both teams will be able to score points pretty effectively in this one. I can see it coming down to the team with the ball last.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies ATS
For me, I can see this being a competitive game. I am not expecting a blowout by either side.
The 5.5 in this spot is too high for me to lay with Dallas. They may win the game, but I like Memphis to keep it within that number.
