NBA Betting Trends
The Warriors are 4-13 against the spread in their last 17 Sunday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games against a team with a losing home record.
The Grizzlies are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games and in four straight as a home favorite.
Memphis already owns a 110-102 win at Golden State this season, but they did fall to the Warriors at home in November back when Stephen Curry was still playing. I like Memphis a lot in this one. The Warriors haven’t been terribly competitive with anyone during this losing skid. All but one loss has been by at least seven points. Memphis is scoring at a high rate right now, putting up at least 117 points in six straight games. That should continue against this awful Golden State defense. I like the young Grizzlies to continue their momentum against the tanking Warriors.
NBA Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies -6.5
