NBA Predictions: Can Lakers cover as underdogs at Grizzlies? 1/15/18

Will the Los Angeles Lakers get it done as a small road underdog today when they play at the Memphis Grizzlies? Game time is 5:30PM ET.

Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Both teams. As of Monday morning, the public bets have been split at 50 percent for both the Lakers and Grizzlies.

Injury Report: Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. exited last game after getting cut above his eye, but is expected to play today. Lonzo Ball is dealing with a minor knee sprain and is questionable tonight. Brandon Ingram left the last game with a mild ankle sprain and is questionable today. For the Grizzlies, Chandler Parsons is out indefinitely with knee soreness. Mike Conley Jr. is out indefinitely with Achilles soreness.

Who the Trends Like: The over is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings overall and 4-1-1 in the last six meetings in Memphis. Memphis is 4-0-1 in its last five games following a straight up loss.

Who We Like: Los Angeles has won four in a row which includes an impressive 93-81 home win over the Spurs and a 107-101 victory at the Mavericks its last game. I expect the run to continue here. Obviously, it will be ideal if Ball and Ingram play but I at least expect the former to play and probably both will be active. The Grizzlies have lost three of their last four and are going through the motions in a lost season.
