The Golden State Warriors (-200 to win the NBA title this year) are ready for the playoffs, but they will have to make a trip first to the Memphis Grizzlies’ territory for one last regular-season assignment. Will the Warriors punctuate their regular-season schedule with a win? Or will the Grizzlies get win before packing their bags for an early vacation?
Betting Preview for the Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Regular Season Game on April 10, 2019
Where: FedEx Forum, Memphis
When: Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 8:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Golden State Warriors (57-24)
All the weapons of the Warriors will undergo one more round of polishing against a Memphis squad that’s going nowhere this season – the same team Golden State has mopped the floor with in three games this season. The Warriors defeated Memphis 117-101 at home last November; 110-93 also at home last December; and 118-103 on the road last March. The Warriors have also covered the spread in all those games, just to further illustrate how dominant they are when up against the Grizzlies. If there’s one thing that’s going to be a threat to Golden State destroying Memphis again, it’s the availability of the team’s top players. The Warriors have guaranteed themselves a No. 1 seed in the playoffs, so sending the likes of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant,and Klay Thompson to the court can be viewed as meaningless. Kevon Looney, Quinn Cook, and Alfonzo McKinnie will get significant bump in minutes in the event that the Warriors rest some – if not all – of their starters.
Golden State has averaged 115.0 points in three meetings this season with the Grizzlies.
The Warriors are 6-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games in Memphis.
Betting on the Memphis Grizzlies (32-48)
It’s been a season of struggles for Memphis, who will be playing the NBA lottery again. Their frustrated fans can give some semblance of reason to smile this Wednesday, though, if somehow, the Grizzlies find a way to take down the reigning and defending NBA champions. It’s obviously going to be easier said than done, especially with Jonas Valanciunas out for the rest of the season due to an injury. Valanciunas had a productive night, albeit in a loss to Golden State last month, scoring 27 points and getting 13 rebounds. With Valanciunas out, the Grizzlies will get a heavy dosage of Bruno Caboclo, who had a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds in the March game against Golden State. Conley is likely to sit out the Warriors game this week, too. Justin Holiday is more than willing to step in Conley’s role as starting point guard. Holiday broke out with 30 points in an overtime loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.
The Grizzlies are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 games at home. The totals has also hit the over three times during that same stretch.
Golden State closes out the regular season with a high-scoring win, 121-116.
