Why Bet on the Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies need to snap this nasty three game losing streak. The back to back losses to the Spurs are not terrible concerning, but falling in the first game to the Lakers has Memphis scratching their head a bit. The Grizzlies are anchored in offense by point guard Mike Conley, since they lost their top scorer Marc Gasol earlier in the season. Memphis is struggling offensively, as they are scoring just 99.2 points per game. Defensively, Memphis still ranks as one of the Top 10 teams in the league, allowing just over 100 per game. The Grizzlies, with just 41 wins will not reach 50 for the fourth straight season.

Why Bet on the Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are 14-24 away from home on the season. The Nuggets have lost two of their last three games on the road. The Nuggets beat the Lakers at the Staples Center, but then fell to the Clippers. Denver is fourth in the Northwest Division, ahead of only the Minnesota Timberwolves. Denver is led in scoring by small forward Danilo Gallinari, with more than 19 points per game. The Nuggets are scoring 102.3 points per game, and allowing opponents to score 104.9. The Nuggets have surpassed their win total from a season ago, but will finish under .500 for the third straight season.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Denver Nuggets made a charge a little too late in the season to make the postseason. The Nuggets got better defensively, and were certainly a team that could score. Unfortunately for the Memphis Grizzlies, they are going to have a terrible time finding enough offense once the postseason arrives. Their first round matchup against the Clippers will have to be a defensive masterpiece. In this particular game, look for the Grizzlies to win, due to having confidence, and effort over the Grizzlies. Bet the Memphis Grizzlies -5.5 over the Denver Nuggets for Wednesday.

Our final score prediction is the Grizzlies 102 and Nuggets 93.
