Why Bet on the Memphis Grizzlies?
The Grizzlies were off to a great start this season, winning their first two games against the Cavaliers and the Clippers. This will be their fourth road contest in five games, and we expect the side to keep things close.
Despite losing their last two contests, the Grizzlies remain one of the highest-scoring teams in the league. They are averaging 116.5 points per game. Memphis has been held under 100 points just once over its last four games. But in contrast, the Grizzlies also allow the most points per contest. They are giving up 118 points a game since the start of the 2021 season.
Ja Morant is the heart and soul of the offense. Before Wednesday’s 119-96 loss to Portland, the Grizzlies led the league with a 55.0 effective field goal percentage. Additionally, he is largely responsible for the team hitting an average of 14.0 three-pointers per game (5th). Morant leads the stats in points and assists with 35.0 and 8.0, respectively.
Starting guard Dillon Brooks is not expected to return from injury yet. De’Anthony Melton will continue to take the position until Brooks recovers.
Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Warriors are still undefeated. They have three road wins to their name and a narrow 115-113 home victory against the Clippers.
Offensively, Steve Kerr dialed in his team right away. They average 115.2 points per game (8th) and have one of the best ball rotations in the league right now with 28.2 assists per game (2nd). This is backed by a 54.5% effective field goal average (6th). Of course, the Warriors are expected to be one of the best three-point shooting teams. The team averages 14.0 three-pointers made per game (5th) and Stephen Curry leads the pack with an average of 29.0 points and 8.25 rebounds per game.
The Warriors were never the strongest rebounding team but exceeded expectations with 56.8 total rebounds per game (10th). They also have one of the best steals records in the league right now with 8.8 per game (10th).
We expect a healthy Warriors starting lineup this Thursday. James Wiseman and Jonathan Muminga are still out of the lineup due to injury and are only expected to return late into the first half of the season.

Grizzlies vs. Warriors Expert Betting Prediction
The Grizzlies have one more game left on their road trip before going back to Memphis. We expect a more confident squad along with Taylor Jenkins challenging the hosts. Despite being the underdogs, there’s a good chance that we see the Grizzlies cover the spread. However, if they let the Warriors take charge, it’s going to be difficult to close the gaps in the latter stages. Ultimately, we look forward to an abundance of attacking basketball come Thursday night.
