NBA Gambling News: Mavericks will play regular rotation vs. Grizzlies

Dallas at Memphis -3.5 O/U 190.5

Dallas plans on playing its regular rotation tonight against Memphis despite having a postseason spot locked up. The team feels reaching the 50-win plateau is worth fighting for. Not to mention if they win they avoid top seed San Antonio is the first round. All three potential opponents (Spurs, Thunder, or Clippers) are obviously quality ball clubs but the Mavs haven't had a lot of success of late against San Antonio having lost nine straight.

“I’m not even thinking about that kind of stuff,’’ Carlisle said after Wednesday morning’s shootaround at the FedEx Forum. “If you can get a higher seed, if you can get 50 wins, you do it.

“It’s more than just avoiding San Antonio,’’ center Samuel Dalembert said. “It’s more like we have pride

NBA Handicapping: Phoenix Suns in must-win situation vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Memphis at Phoenix -2.5 O/U 195.5

A game behind Memphis and void of any tie-breakers in their favor, the Phoenix Suns need a lot of favorable bounces to reach the postseason. First, they'll need to beat Memphis tonight and Sacramento on Wednesday. They'll also need the Grizzlies to lose to Dallas in their season finale – the only problem is the Mavs are locked into the seventh seed and will have nothing to play for.

NBA Betting News: Memphis Grizzlies hope to recharge batteries

04.04.2014     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Like a lot of teams, the Memphis Grizzlies have expended a ton of energy during their postseason push. And you could tell at the end of their recent five-game West Coast swing (2-3 SU, 0-5 ATS) this squad was worn down. They got a much-needed day off on Wednesday and play host to Denver tonight. The Grizz currently own the 8th seed in the Western Conference via tiebreaker over Phoenix.

“It was one of those games, end of a road trip, (when you) can’t feel your legs, trying to push through it,” forward Zach Randolph told “It just felt like we were running in the mud.”

Memphis +2 at Golden State O/U 188
Recommendation: Memphis

Memphis hits the West Coast tonight to face the Warriors with revenge in mind.  Way back in December the struggling Grizzlies were trounced on their home court by the Warriors 108-82.  Of course, much has changed in the almost four months since they last played.  For starters, the Grizzlies are clearly hitting their late season stride.  They’ve been about as good as anyone in the NBA racking up a 28-9 record since January 10th.  Health is the main ingredient for the resurgence with Marc Gasol in the middle playing his usual all-around game.  The Grizzlies took some time to gel this season under new coach Dick Joerger.  Joerger tried to implement some new things in the early going, and there was an eventual give and take before the kinks were worked out.  With the playoffs approaching you can be sure no one will want to play this grit-and-grind squad.  Meanwhile, the Warriors Read more

NBA Handicapping: Minnesota Timberwolves all but out of playoff hunt

Minnesota at Memphis -7.5 O/U 197.5

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been in a perpetual state of .500 for much of the season and as a result find themselves 6.5 games out of the eighth spot in the Western Conference. Following last night’s meltdown loss to Phoenix, the team appears accepting that the postseason isn’t going to happen.

“They’re ahead of us [in the standings], obviously,” Love said. “We looked at that like this was our playoffs right there, and we lost. So this one hurts a lot more than the others.”

Asked if this was as frustrated as he’s been this season, Love said, “No question. We should have won that game, plain and simple.”

Memphis at Oklahoma City -6 O/U 194.5
Recommendation: Under

The Thunder enter Friday night’s contest with the rarest of chips on their shoulder as they’re on a three-game losing streak.  The common denominator in all three losses has been their inefficient play on the defensive end of the basketball court.  In their three losses they’ve allowed an average of 114 ppg while being outscored by 13 points all on their home court.  All the talk this week has centered on improving and playing defense with great effort.  Well, we should get that tonight against the Grizzlies.  The Grizzlies are actually an easier team to defend as they still have issues spreading the court with a consistent outside threat.  Meanwhile, we know what we’ll get from the grit-and-grind Grizzlies.  This team slows it down as much as any team in the NBA, while playing some of the best defense the league has to offer.  These two teams met just over Read more

NBA Handicapping: Oklahoma City looks to snap skid vs. Memphis

Memphis at Oklahoma City -5 O/U 193.5

Some good notes on Oklahoma City who allowed 100+ for a fourth straight game on Tuesday. Heading into tonight's game vs. Memphis, the Thunder have dropped three straight and are on a 2-6 ATS slide.

“It’s not something that we can continue to play defensively like this. But one of the things I know about our group, we’ve been together for a while, in an NBA season you’re going to have some ups and downs. You just got to stay with what we do and keep believing in each other and our guys have always done that. So I’m very confident that it’s going to continue to be that way. But we have to be better defensively. That’s three games now it’s not up to our level and we have to fix that immediately.”

NBA Gambling Trends: Memphis Grizzlies have profitable profile vs. Sacramento

Sacramento at Memphis -5.5 O/U 200

The Memphis Grizzlies play host to the Sacramento Kings tonight which could well bring into play one of the Grizzlies’ best profiles. Check out these results mined from the database: When Memphis scores 100 or more points they are 55-7 (89%) straight up since the start of the 2011 season. They clock in at a hefty 47-15 (76%) against the spread in that sample. But perhaps the most eye popping figure of the bunch is their totals which have gone over at a 92% clip (56-5-1) when they score 100 or more!

Compare that to the rest of the league and you’ll see Memphis outperforms them in every facet. The league comes in at 72% straight up, 69% against the spread clip while going over at a 79% rate.
Sacramento has made some roster moves and had a little uptick in results of late but they are still a rather poor defensive team that plays at a fast tempo. The Kings give up an average of more than 104 points per game and have allowed at Read more

NBA Betting Recap: San Antonio Spurs sweep Memphis, advance to Finals

Most of the night…it felt like Memphis was ready for their summer vacation. San Antonio was in control, once again attacking weak spots when they had the ball, and denying the rim when they didn’t. But, because the Spurs haven’t quite figured out where the Memphis jugular is…a temporary lapse made it a game in the fourth quarter.

We saw something similar back in Game Two. The Spurs blew a big lead, and Memphis caught them at 85-all to force overtime. Here, the Spurs blew a big lead, and Memphis almost caught them at 89-86 with less than a minute to go. San Antonio made its free throws. Memphis never got another good look.

San Antonio 93, Memphis 86

2-Point Percentage: San Antonio 57%, Memphis 38%

3-Point Shooting: San Antonio 3/13, Memphis 5/14

Free Throws: San Antonio 12/13, Memphis 17/24

1’s and 2’s: San Antonio 84, Memphis 71

Rebounds: San Antonio 34, Memphis Read more
