Memphis will try to complete a perfect 3-0 road trip, as it comes off an impressive 113-81 victory over the Sacramento Kings as four-point favorites Monday night, while going OVER the total for the first time in six contests. “We’re a defensive team,” stated Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph. “When we get stops we can score with the best of them.” The Grizzlies are allowing an NBA-low 89.1 points per game. Memphis is 24-15 ATS in January the last two-plus years, with the UNDER going 24-15 in that situation.
The Grizzlies are 9-6 away from the FedExForum this season, including a 6-5 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Memphis earned a 104-94 win over Golden State as 1.5-point road favorites in the first meeting this year, while going OVER the posted total of 191.5. Randolph scored 15 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in that contest, with the franchise winning the last seven games overall in the series.
Golden State had its four-game win streak snapped in a 115-89 setback to the Los Angeles Clippers as six-point road underdogs Saturday, while going OVER the total in consecutive contests. “I think our problem is when we become careless at times,” stated Warriors coach Mark Jackson. “Our turnovers have been unforced errors.” The Warriors are 11-4 at Oracle Arena this season including a 4-3 mark versus conference foes. Golden State is 4-0 ATS when playing with three or more days rest, which can’t be ignored when making your NBA picks against the spread Wednesday night.
The Warriors have three probable starters scoring in double figures, with point guard Stephen Curry leading the way, averaging 20.1 points and 6.5 assists per game. He has scored 20-plus points in 18 of his 24 games during the 2012-13 NBA season. Golden State is off to its best start since 1991-92, while going 9-1 in games following a loss this year. The franchise is 10-2 against teams with a winning record, but just an even 7-7 versus losing opposition.
Sports bettors will likely play the total in this affair, as the OVER is 10-5 when the Warriors are at home.
