Lakers at Grizzlies picks and predictions


Grizzlies 116, Lakers 111



While the Grizzlies should secure the win at home, the Lakers are more equipped to play without James on the floor following the trade deadline and the profit would be minimal if Memphis wins.

Against the spread

BET LAKERS +9.5 (-118).

Even with the Lakers not having James available, they still are expected to have Davis, F Jarred Vanderbilt, G Malik Beasley, and G Dennis Schroder. The Lakers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record and the Grizzlies are 1-3 ATS in their last 4 games overall.


Even with these teams being top 6 in pace this season, James being sidelined will likely slow the game down, making UNDER 231.5 (-115) the pick in this matchup. The Lakers are 5-1 to the Under in their last 6 games overall and the Grizzlies are 6-1 to the Under in their last 7 home games.
