Grizzlies vs. Lakers Free Pick
The Memphis Grizzlies look to pick up a 10th straight win over the Los Angeles Lakers when the two meet tonight at 10:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Grizzlies are a slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Lakers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 202 points.
Memphis is 41-30 overall, 16-19 on the road and 38-32-1 against the spread. Los Angeles is 14-55 overall, 5-30 on the road and 31-38 against the spread. Memphis has won and covered the spread in all three meetings with the Lakers this season. Memphis has also won nine straight in this series.
The Grizzlies are still dealing with a lot of injuries, but they are still in the thick of the playoff mix while the Lakers couldn’t be much further out of it. The Lakers aren’t exactly healthy either as Kobe Bryant is dealing with a shoulder injury. Memphis is 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 conference games while the Lakers have failed to cover in their last 4 at home. Memphis has won 9 straight in the series, so winning by more than a possession shouldn’t be too tough.
