Mavericks at Grizzlies picks and predictions

Prediction

Grizzlies 116, Mavericks 107

Moneyline

AVOID.

Dallas is just 12-20 on the road this season. Without Doncic, these odds are justified, and the underdog isn’t worth a play at all. Memphis is too pricey to play here as well.

Against the spread

BET GRIZZLIES -5.5 (-110).

The Grizzlies have played well without Morant, covering 2 of the 3 games he’s missed. They put a 21-point beatdown on the Warriors at home in their lone home game without Morant.

Players like G Desmond Bane and F Dillon Brooks can and have stepped up. Dallas, on the other hand, has failed to cover 3 in a row and is 2-8 ATS in its last 10 and 1-5 ATS in its last 6.

Memphis also ranks No. 1 in opponents’ field goal percentage (44.9%), so that defensive tenacity mixed with the absence of Doncic should result in a Grizzlies cover.

Back GRIZZLIES -5.5 (-110).

Over/Under

LEAN UNDER 223.5 (-110).

Memphis allows the 6th-fewest points per game (112), and the Mavericks play at one of the slowest paces in the NBA. The Grizzlies are 2-6-1 O/U in their last 9 games.

Dallas is 4-3-1 O/U in its last 8. The Mavericks play at the 2nd-slowest pace in the NBA, and the Grizzlies’ style should adjust without Morant to be slower as well.

Considering it all, back the UNDER 223.5 (-110).
