Washington may have had a nice winning streak come to an end on Sunday in a one point loss to Boston, but that’s still an impressive run going 7-3 over their last ten.
The Wizards look like an easy play Tuesday as a +1 home underdog. Sure Memphis was impressive in a 133-84 win over Houston on Sunday, but to be honest everybody looks good vs. the Rockets lately. This one is intriguing.
Memphis did whatever they wanted last time out vs. the Rockets, but that’s the norm vs. Houston lately. It was still an impressive defensive performance by the Grizzlies, allowing only 10 assists to Houston.
One of the things that makes Memphis dangerous is that they are a really balanced team. Sure a lot of it had to do with being up 63-37 at the half, but 7 Grizzlies players scored at least a dozen on Sunday.
Memphis should also be relatively rested against that supremely easy win over Houston, with no starter logging over 28 minutes. The Grizzlies also put up 120+ in a 122-94 win over the Clippers last Thursday so they can score.
The Grizzlies are a solid 8-5 on the road this season, but is that enough to make them a favorite over a streaking Washington team? At first glance there’s no major injuries for the Wiz, but they are playing a 3rd in 4 nights situation.
Sure the loss vs. the Celtics on Sunday was disappointing for Washington as it snapped a streak of wins in 7 of their last 8. That’s not a bad performance falling 111-110 to Boston as +6.5 underdogs – and on the back to back.
It’s no secret what Washington is going to game plan for on Tuesday, riding their back court per usual. Russell Westbrook has settled into his role with the Wizards nicely, a rebound and assist shy of a triple double in 7 of the last 8.
Then there’s Bradley Beal, who went from being on the chopping block to helping the Wizards climb within 2.5 of a playoff spot. Beal has 30+ in 5 of the last 6 – why on Earth are the Wizards not 5 or 6 point favorites?
Washington is just 6-9 at home, but have covered in 8 of their last 9 games overall. The Wizards run the top pace in the NBA which would point to high scoring, but Memphis has dropped all the way to 14th in tempo this year with a coaching change.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
It’s hard to play the side in this game when it seems like such an easy Washington win. Oddsmakers simply don’t give you a game like this unless there’s an injury, or some load management going on.
Ultimately this game could be much lower scoring than expected as well. If the 3-games-in-4-nights does catch up to the Wizards, that total is way too high.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Under 237.5
That’s a lot of points, but also with two solid offenses. Ultimately still a lot of points.
