Cavaliers at Grizzlies: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks
Grizzlies 105, Cavaliers 100
Money line (ML)
The Grizzlies (-175) “should” be able to win this game, especially with the Cavaliers (+145) facing the quick turnaround after playing in Orlando last night. Cleveland opened 3-0 SU, but they’re earning their former moniker, the Cadavers, going 1-4 SU in the previous five. However, it’s hard to justify risking $1.75 for every $1 won on a Grizzlies side that has won just twice in seven total games.
Against the spread (ATS)
The GRIZZLIES -3.5 (-115) are worth playing lightly, as the Cavaliers +3.5 (-105) limp in with just one win across the past five outings while also going 1-4 ATS during the span. Memphis enters with just one win in the past four, but they covered last time out against the defending-champion Lakers, 94-92, while going 3-2 ATS across the past five. They’re on their home floor, and they will keep the visitors reeling on the road.
UNDER 211.5 (-110) is the best play on the board in this game, as the Cavaliers streak in with six consecutive Under results, including four straight on the road. The Under has also cashed in five straight as an underdog. If you think that’s impressive, the Under has connected in 18 of the previous 21 at home for the Grizzlies, while going 21-7 in their past 28 overall dating back to last season.
