The defending NBA champs haven’t missed a beat since winning it all last season, as the Warriors remain undefeated after eight games this season. Their perfect record will face a serious challenge Wednesday night when they play the Grizzlies in Memphis, a place where they’ve gone just 4-11 SU in their last 15 games.
The Grizzlies haven’t had a strong start to the season, going 3-5 SU and 1-4 SU within the Western Conference. They currently rank near the bottom of the league in point per games and are in the middle of the pack in point allowed per game.
Of particular interest to O/U bettors is that the total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Warriors’ last 17 games while playing on one day’s rest, while the total has gone UNDER in four of the Grizzlies last five when playing on one day’s rest.
The two teams last played in the Western Conference Semifinals last season, where Golden State won the series in six games, winning two of three games in Memphis.
