Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Western Conference top seed team is about to take on the Grizzlies for the third time this season. Memphis drew first blood in October, while the Warriors made it even by December. Nonetheless, the Warriors are fired up after their first game with Thompson back on the floor, as he helped them score their sixth win in ten games.
The Warriors average 109.8 points (11th) per game on 46.8% shooting (fifth). There’s no question that they hold some of the best shooting records right now with some of the finest shooters in the league. The side averages 56.2% (second) from two points and 35.9% (eighth) from beyond the arc. On top of that, the Warriors exhibit some of the best ball movement right now with 27.9 assists (second) per game.
The Warriors show no signs of slowing down on the defensive end. They hold opponents to the least points at 100.9 (first) per game. On top of that, we see the squad limit competitors’ shooting to 42.5% (first) per game.

The Grizzlies have been on a roll and averaging 112.1 points (fifth) per game while shooting 51.7% from the field (21st). We see the squad showcase good ball movement with 25.3 assists (ninth) per game. Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, and Jaren Jackson Jr. link up very well on this end of the field, which the Warriors have to keep a close eye on.
Defensively, the hosts hold opponents to 107.9 points (15th) per game. They can put pressure on their opponents on the rebounding side. The Grizzlies average 57.3 total rebounds (first) per game and do particularly well on offensive boards. Furthermore, the team has a decent two-point shooting defense, limiting opposing teams to 51.0% (eighth).
Steven Adams has been placed in health and safety protocol. This leaves Brandon Clarke with center duties on Tuesday. Other than that, the rest of the Grizzlies’ starting lineup is locked and loaded.

Warriors vs. Grizzlies Expert Betting Prediction
The Warriors don’t have Draymond Green at their disposal while Gary Paton and Otto Porter Jr. take some sting out of the team’s rotation if they sit the game out. On the other hand, the Grizzlies have their concerns without Dillon Brooks for at least three weeks while Steven Adams is questionable. The Warriors open the game as the slight favorites, but that’s only because the hosts have less firepower on their end. That said, we expect a close contest between the two with Thompson back in action while the Grizzlies get home advantage and the better record in the last ten games.
