The Memphis Grizzlies have embarrassed themselves the last two times they’ve taken the court. A team that was once on a roll must now find a way to regroup on its home floor.
Houston Rockets @ Memphis Grizzlies – Friday, March 29

Why Houston Will Win
Online football betting students who want to add a little intrigue to their sports betting weekend will pursue the possibility of betting on this game. If they do a little research, they’ll find that the Rockets could very easily win on the road in Memphis, primarily because the Grizzlies are suddenly searching for answers.
Memphis had won 14 of 15 games in the final three weeks of February and the first week of March, but in the past week, the Grizzlies have lost three of four, including ugly defeats against New Orleans and Washington. Memphis might have been looking ahead to a date with the New York Knicks when it lost at Washington on Monday, March 25, but that notion was obliterated when the Grizzlies stunk up the joint in the first two and a half quarters against the Knicks on Wednesday, March 27. Memphis fell behind by 28 points before mounting a huge fourth-quarter rally that fell short. Memphis is simply playing horrible basketball right now, and a Houston squad that has won five of seven games should be in position to take advantage if the Grizzlies remain flat as a pancake.
Why Memphis Will Win
With an online horse betting guru or a college football betting expert, the calculus of a given event can sometimes depend on the level of the opposition, but this is not one such case. Houston has actually played fairly well in recent weeks, so the best reason to take Memphis is found within the Grizzlies themselves.
Professional athletes carry a lot of pride each day. Memphis has picked itself off the canvas at multiple points in this regular season, and as a result, the Grizzlies are still in the running for either the third or fourth playoff seeds in the Western Conference. Memphis would certainly like to nail down home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, so there’s plenty of incentive for the Grizzlies in this contest. The other thing to realize is that after three really bad showings over the past week, Memphis will be angry, intent on performing at a higher plateau. Professional pride, combined with playoff stakes and incentives, should push the Grizzlies to play better. The fact that Houston has won only three road games since the NBA All-Star break should add to the sense that Memphis will be able to get back on the beam in this tussle.
Who Will Win?
The sense here is that Memphis will indeed take the court with steam coming out of its ears. Houston has just finished a seven-game road trip and will probably find this road game to be either a distraction, a chore, or both.
