Basketball Betting – Los Angeles Lakers vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Basketball betting action on Monday includes the Los Angeles Lakers in Memphis to face the Grizzlies.

NBA betting odds have the Lakers as road favorites in this game. Let’s take a look at this basketball betting matchup.

Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that this is the third game of a four-game road trip for the Lakers and the first of a back-to-back situation as they are at New Orleans tomorrow. NBA betting scheduling shows that this is the last game of a five-game homestand for the Grizzlies and the first of a back-to-back as they are at Dallas tomorrow night.

Basketball betting history shows that the Lakers and Grizzlies have split their last ten meetings. Memphis is a very nice 7-3 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams met three times last season and the Lakers won two of the three games outright but Memphis was 2-1 against the basketball odds. At Memphis, the Grizzlies are 1-3 straight up in their last four games against the Lakers and 2-2 against the NBA betting pointspread.

The Lakers may have a great record straight up but they have a below .500 record against the basketball betting pointspread. Los Angeles has been at or near the top in points scored all season as basketball betting stats show but their defense is in the bottom half of the league.

Memphis has had trouble on offense this season as only rookie O.J. Mayo is averaging more than 20 points per game as NBA betting stats show. The defense has not been strong enough to make up for the lack of offense which is why Memphis has a losing record both straight up and against the basketball betting number.

Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting number. Three of the last four games in Memphis between the two have sailed over the basketball betting total.
