Warriors Betting Outlook

The Warriors are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games and 36-35-4 overall in 2021-22.

In Sunday’s loss to the Warriors, Jordan Poole (26), Thompson (25), and Andrew Wiggins (23) combined for 74 points. However, that wasn’t enough to keep Golden State from dropping to 1-3 on its five-game road trip.

Poole was only 1 of 10 from three-point range. As a team, the Warriors shot 24.2% (8 of 33) from distance.

Poole has scored at least 20 points in 13 straight games. He did so 15 times in the first 55 games of the season.

Thompson reached the 20-point mark for the 11th time in 28 games after sitting out the first 38 games of the season and all the two previous seasons because of injury.

Wiggins has scored 20 or more in two of the three games after hitting that mark only once in his prior 18 games.

Porter added 14 points and 11 rebounds off the bench for his fifth double-double of the season.

Grizzlies Betting Outlook

The Grizzlies have been the winning side against the number in four straight games and were one-point underdogs Saturday in the win over the Bucks. For the season, Memphis has an ATS record of 49-26.

De’Anthony Melton led the way as he scored a team-high 24 points in just 21:51 off the bench. He made 8 of 11 shots from the field, including knocking down 6 of 9 on three-pointers.

Melton is 26 for 44 from distance in the last six games and has scored in double figures in four straight games. He also made three steals Saturday.

Desmond Bane added 20 points and five assists. He has reached 20 points in four straight games, six of seven and nine of 11.

Dillon Brooks finished with 19 points, Jackson scored 16 points and Tyus Jones contributed 13 points and 10 assists. Both of Jones’ double-doubles this season have come in the last three games.

The Grizzlies had just eight turnovers against the Bucks while holding them to 39.8% (37 of 93) from the field and 7 of 32 (21.9%) on three-point tries. Memphis ran its home winning streak to seven games.

Warriors-Grizzlies Prediction

The Grizzlies have won three of the last four meetings between the teams, including going 2-1 this season.

Memphis won the last matchup 116-108 on Jan. 11 at home as Morant had 29 points and eight assists while Ziaire Williams added 17 points and Jones contributed 17 points and eight dimes. Curry had a triple-double with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

The line is high, but the Warriors are still good enough to at least sneak under the double-digit number.

The Pick: Warriors +10.5 (-110)
