Jazz vs. Grizzlies Prediction
The Grizzlies have won seven of their last 10 games, are taking on a Jazz team that has dropped eight of its last 10 games and are only laying 3 points as a home favorite on Friday night. Will Memphis cover against Utah?
563 Utah Jazz (+3) At 564 Memphis Grizzlies (-3); o/u 224.5
8:00 p.m. ET, Friday, January 28, 2022
Venue: FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Donovan Mitchell (concussion) is questionable for Friday’s game against the Grizzlies. Mitchell has missed Utah’s last five games, but he did accompany the team on its charter flight to Memphis. If he’s cleared to play, that would shift Joe Ingles back to the bench, thus eliminating any value that he had as a streaming option. Trent Forrest (right ankle) would be in an even worse spot as far as fantasy value is concerned, while Bojan Bogdanovic would lose out on a few shots (but remains a solid fantasy option).
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes
Ja Morant hit 15-of-28 shots, three 3-pointers and 8-of-10 free throws for 41 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and just one turnover in 37 minutes of Wednesday’s 118-110 win over the Spurs. The fact he had just one turnover in 37 minutes while scoring 41 and handing the ball constantly is simply unfair. He’s now scored 41, 35, 38, 33 and 25 in each of his last five games and there’s not much more to say. Kid’s a beast.
