Utah Jazz DFS Spin

Donovan Mitchell (personal reasons) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. How much time Mitchell will miss is unknown but, with the Jazz scheduled to play at home Friday night, it's possible that this will be a one-game absence. Joe Ingles is likely to get a spot start Wednesday night, while Mike Conley should have a little more freedom to attack the Grizzlies defense in search of his own offense. Jordan Clarkson, who has been mired in a shooting slump, should also see a boost in his already-high number of scoring opportunities.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin

Jonas Valanciunas destroyed the Rockets on Monday with a season-high 30 points on 13-of-18 shooting, 15 rebounds (four offensive) and one assist in 32 minutes. JV doesn't get many headlines but he's been terrific this season with 31 double-doubles, True Shooting north of 60%, and the league's third-best rebound rate behind only Clint Capela and Andre Drummond. He came in averaging 16.2 points and 15.3 rebounds since the All-Star break, and has thus far avoided irritating DNP-Rest days in back-to-back situations. There's no reason he can't maintain a top-75 pace as the No. 9 seed Grizzlies fight for postseason relevance.

Jazz vs. Grizzlies Betting Prediction

The Jazz are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against the Grizzlies so despite the line movement, I still see Utah as the play tonight. The Jazz are also 27-11 against the spread in their last 38 games overall, are 37-16-1 against the spread in their last 54 games following an ATS win and are 18-6 at the betting window in their last 24 games following a win of more than 10 points.
