Grizzlies vs. Magic Best Bets

Grizzlies -6 (-110 DraftKings)

The Grizzlies are averaging 115.9 points this season (121.7 in their last three games) and are 16-4-1 ATS when scoring over 114 in a contest this NBA season. Memphis is ranked first in the association in defensive shooting percentage while the Magic sit 27th in offensive efficiency. This is a mismatch with the Grizzlies running hot and facing a Magic squad that is injured and struggling. Take Memphis to cover.

Grizzlies vs. Magic Game Total Over 231.5 (-110 DraftKings)

The Grizzlies have a big advantage on the glass in this one and should be able to do what they want with the rim tonight. They’ve put up an average of 121.7 points per game in their last three tilts and scoring over 120 is certainly in the realm of possibility again in this contest. While Orlando is only posting 110.2 on average this season, it shouldn’t matter as the Grizzlies will put in most of the work to reach the over, and the Magic should do enough at home to take it there.
