Grizzlies' New Starting Lineup Could be Concerning for Bettors

Two teams jockeying for position in the middle of the Western Conference playoff race will collide tonight when the Los Angeles Clippers visit Tennessee to tangle with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clips own a two-game lead over the Grizz for the fifth seed in the West with 18 games remaining, which means tonight’s contest will have huge postseason ramifications. Oddsmakers initially set the Clippers as 1-point underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 208.

  • The Clippers are 6-2 SU in their last eight games against the Grizzlies.
  • The Grizzlies are 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven games with two days off between games.
  • The Grizzlies are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

The Grizzlies reached a low point in the season when they lost to the NBA-worst Brooklyn Nets 122-109 in front of their hometown fans on Monday, the team’s fifth defeat in the past seven contests.
