Betting on the Memphis Grizzlies (+4.5)

Regular Season Record: 51-31

The Grizzlies did not allow Los Angeles to finish the series in five games, as Memphis dealt LA a 116-99 loss at home last Wednesday to force a Game 6. Ja Morant and Desmond Bane combined for 64 points to lead the way for the Grizzlies, while Jaren Jackson provided 18 points and 10 rebounds to go with two blocks. Although they shot just 44.4 percent from the field in Game 5, the Grizzlies finally tasted a win again. It could only get better for them from here.

The Grizzlies are 10-4-1 agains the spread in their last 15 games on a Friday. Moreover, the Under is 6-2-1 in Memphis’ last nine games after a win of more than 10 points.

Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers (-4.5)

Regular Season Record: 43-39

It’s back to the drawing board for the Lakers, who can still get the job done and clinch the series on Friday. The loss last Wednesday to the Grizzlies wasted a huge game from Anthony Davis, who went off for 31 points and 19 rebounds. The Lakers hope that performances like that become more consistent from Davis, who has alternated explosive games with underwhelming showings in this series. Still, Davis is the best big man in this matchup, so the Lakers will have to continue trusting in him. As long as he’s healthy, Davis is a threat to ruin Memphis’ plans. The Lakers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games versus a team with a losing road record.

Writer’s Prediction

The Grizzlies win, 117-114.
