The Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs meet Friday in NBA action at the Frost Bank Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Grizzlies vs Spurs prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 11 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a four-game slide after getting thrashed by the Warriors in a 137-116 road defeat on Wednesday. GG Jackson drained seven 3-pointers to lead the team with 35 points on 11 of 19 shooting, Jaren Jackson Jr added 28 points on 13 of 21 shooting while Santi Aldama chipped in with 27 points, nine rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 43 percent from the field and 18 of 49 from the 3-point line but they were poor on the defensive end and trailed by 10 points going into halftime before they leaked an unforgivable 40 points in the third quarter to lose big in the end. The Grizzlies will meet the Nuggets and Lakers after this one.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in poor form as they’ve lost six of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after falling short to the Mavericks in a 113-107 loss on Tuesday night. Tre Jones led the team with 22 points and nine assists, Devin Vassell added 19 points while Victor Wembenyama tallied 12 points with 11 rebounds and six blocks. As a team, the Spurs shot 43 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line as they went on a run in the fourth quarter to overcome a 13-point deficit, but they went cold when it mattered most, scoring just six points in the final 4:09 to allow the Mavericks off the hook.

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have lost each of their last 11 games against Southwest Division opponents.
  • The Spurs have covered the spread in each of their last six games as favorites on the first leg of a back-to-back.
  • Each of the Spurs’ last six games against Southwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Memphis Grizzlies Team Facts

  • The Grizzlies have won each of their last 13 games against the Spurs.
  • The Grizzlies have covered the spread in each of their last five games as underdogs against Southwest Division opponents.
  • Eight of the Grizzlies’ last nine road games have gone OVER the total points line.

Grizzlies vs Spurs prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing a host of players including Derrick Rose, Ja Morant, Luke Kennard and Brandon Clarke, while the Spurs are keeping an eye on Zach Collins who is questionable due to a concussion. This is definitely a game I would rather stay away from as you couldn’t trust either team these days, but there is just a little bit more to like about the Spurs who were more than competitive in a narrow loss to the Mavericks in their last outing.
