The Line: Memphis +11.5
The Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies do battle at the FedEx Forum on Wednesday night.
The Golden State Warriors have been in decent shape lately as they’ve won five of their last seven games and they will be looking to keep things rolling after taking down the Pistons in a 121-114 home win on Sunday. Stephen Curry led the team with 26 points and nine rebounds, Klay Thompson added 24 points on 10 of 17 shooting while Kevin Durant chipped in with 14 points and 11 assists. As a team, the Warriors shot a sizzling 62 percent from the field and 13 of 25 from the 3-point line as they took a 14-point lead at halftime before putting the game out of reach in the third quarter. Demarcus Cousins was sidelined for this game but only for rest purposes as it was the second game of a back to back set. With the easy win, Golden State improved to 50-23 overall and 26-11 at home.
Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been in a funk as they’ve lost four of their last six games, but they will be feeling pretty good about themselves after shocking the Thunder in a 115-103 home win on Monday. Tyler Dorsey led the team with 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists, Bruno Caboclo added 24 points with 11 rebounds while Delon Wright and Jonas Valanciunas each scored 18 points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 44 percent from the field and 11 of 33 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 31 points in the first quarter before pouring in 61 points in the second half to pull off their biggest upset of the season as they won without Mike Conley who sat out with a right shin contusion. With the win, Memphis improved to 30-44 overall and 20-18 at home.
Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games following a win, 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The Grizzlies are 6-0 ATS in their last six games following a win of more than 10 points, 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Head to head, the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings, the under is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings in Memphis and the Warriors are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Grizzlies showed plenty of character in their upset win over the playoff-bound Thunder in their last outing, but it’s going to be tough for them to replicate that effort against the Warriors who have been on a roll lately. Conley is currently listed as questionable to play in this one, but I don’t think it’ll matter if he plays as the Warriors are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and I think they keep that trend going with another easy win here.
