The Jazz and Grizzlies are both 1-1 straight up so far this season, and both are 1-1 ATS as well.
The Grizzlies began their 2018-19 season with about as bad a loss as you’ll see all year. They fell to the Indiana Pacers, 111-83, but they found a way to bounce back with what could quite possibly be their best win of the year.
On Friday, the Grizzlies took down the Hawks, 131-117.
Against the Jazz, Memphis will have a new challenge that teams aren’t used to just yet: stopping multiple scorers.
The Jazz have Donovan Mitchell, who is averaging 21.5 points and is their clear go-to option; however, Joe Ingles has become an extremely high-efficiency option. He’s averaging 24.5 points per game on a ridiculous 70.4 percent shooting, including 64.7 percent from deep on an intense 8.5 shots per game from behind the arc.
Along with Mitchell and Ingles, the Jazz have an inside presence on the offensive end in Rudy Gobert, The 7-foot center from France is still mostly known for his ability to defend the rim, but the Stifle Tower is also posting 17.5 points per game on 73.3 percent shooting to go along with his 13 rebounds and two blocks per contest.
The Jazz should be able to score on the Grizzlies. After all, Memphis is giving up 121 points per game early in the year.
The strategy here must be getting back to Utah’s roots and focusing on defense. The points will come, but if the Jazz allow Mike Conley, Marc Gasol and others shoot at a high level, this one could be closer than it looks like it will on paper.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
When looking at the recent trends, picking Memphis ATS when nine-point underdogs seems like an easy choice. After all, the Jazz have historically been a slow, grind-it-out, low-volume offense, while Memphis has been the grit-and-grind defense that puts even the league’s most potent attacks on notice.
In this one, though, it’s time to recognize that the time, they are a-changin’.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Utah ATS
The Jazz should get this win, and they should get it by double digits.
Utah, at this point in its post-Gordon Hayward era, has multiple scoring options that didn’t exist in past iterations of this roster. All the meanwhile, the Grizzlies are a whole new team with a whole new identity.
The Jazz are fighting for a top-four seed out West, while the Grizzlies, despite the optimistic outlooks of some, are fighting for a spot in the lottery.
This game should reflect that once it’s all sand and done.
