Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Free Pick
Los Angeles Lakers +7.
The Key: Memphis is getting a little too much respect from odds makers following back-to-back blowout wins at home. The Grizzlies aren’t a quick-shooting team. They like to throw the ball down to Gasol in the post and work for good shots. Their offensive philosophy shortens the game and makes these seven points go further.
The Grizzlies are just 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games versus teams with a losing record and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games versus team with a winning percentage below .400. Memphis is a good defensive team, but the Lakers, who average 102.0 ppg, were able to score 102 points in a five-point defeat in the season’s first meeting. I think LA has enough offense to keep this one close. The Lakers have lost by more than five points just once in the last six meetings. The Lakers are 10-1 ATS the last two seasons when the total is 190.0 to 199.5. The underdog is 3-0-3 ATS in the last six meetings.
Take the points.
