Memphis Grizzlies Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
The Grizzlies began their rebuild this past season by trading away Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, the two best players in franchise history. They struck NBA Lottery gold by moving up to No. 2, and drafted point guard Ja Morant. Between Morant, center Jaren Jackson and forward Brandon Clarke, the core is in place for the long-term future.
Here’s the key odds available and how you should bet them:
Grizzlies Win-Total Betting
The Line: 26.5 with 888sport
The Grizzlies received a first-round pick for Mike Conley, but they also received some key pieces in Jae Crowder and Grayson Allen. They also made an under-the-radar signing in Tyus Jones. Those role players should do enough to support Morant and Jackson and get the Grizzlies barely over their win total.
The Bet: We like them to go over, and they could flirt with 30 wins.
Grizzlies Southwest Division Odds
The Line: +23000 with SugarHouse
The Grizzlies have never won their division since the NBA expanded in 2004. The Rockets and Spurs have owned the Southwest, and 2020 will be no different. The Grizzlies are a few years away from competing, and they have two other young teams on the rise in Dallas and New Orleans to compete with.
The Bet: These odds aren’t worth taking.
Grizzlies Western Conference Odds
The Line: +25000 with FanDuel
The Grizzlies weren’t able to win the West with Gasol and Conley in their primes, so they won’t come close to accomplishing it this season in Year 1 of a rebuild. In an absolute best-case scenario, they sneak in as the 8 seed before a quick Round 1 exit.
The Bet: Don’t touch these odds.
Grizzlies NBA Title Odds
The Line: +50000 with 888sport
It will be a while before the Grizzlies think about playing in June. They are one of four teams with the league’s worst title odds. They’ll compete most nights, but they have a long way to go to get back to relevancy in the West.
The Bet: These odds aren’t worth considering.
Best Grizzlies Player Prop Bets
Morant may compete for Rookie of the Year (+275 at 888sport), but the better value is on Jackson to win Most Improved Player. He’s one of the league’s best young talents and battled through some injuries as a rookie. Morant will feed him early and often, and he could be among the league leaders in blocks per game.
The Bet: Jackson’s skill set should yield impressive raw numbers, making him a great darkhorse pick for this award.
