Both teams could be a little weary as they played last night. Gamblers who bet on basketball should be aware that the Celtics played last night in San Antonio and could have a letdown on Saturday while the Grizzlies were at New Orleans.
Basketball betting trends show that Boston has won 6 of the last 10 games outright against the Grizzlies but they are just 3-6-1 against the basketball odds. At Memphis, the Celtics have won three of the last five games and they are 3-2 against the basketball odds.
Boston has struggled in the past few weeks versus the basketball betting lines, mainly due to injuries. Fans who bet on basketball know that Kevin Garnett missed a lot of time and many of the bench players were injured. The Celtics are still extremely talented though and when fully healthy perhaps the best team in the league. Boston has been nothing special this season on the road versus the basketball betting odds as they are oftentimes overvalued. Boston is tough on defense ranking 2nd in the league as basketball betting stats show while their offense is just inside the Top 10.
Memphis has not been very good this season straight up or against the basketball betting line. The Grizzlies really struggle to score and their defense is nothing special. Memphis has a lot of young talent but on most nights they are too inconsistent to cover the basketball betting pointspread. O.J. Mayo has led them in scoring for much of the season as basketball betting stats show.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total. Three of the last five at Memphis have gone over the bet on basketball total. That basketball betting trend could end considering Memphis struggles to score and Boston plays great defense.
