The Celtics have been excellent at home this season but the Grizzlies might have a chance to cover the basketball betting pointspread considering the trends are in their favor.
Bet on basketball scheduling information shows that the Grizzlies are playing the third game of a four-game road trip. The Grizzlies have lost 6 of the last 10 games outright against the Celtics but they are 6-3-1 against the basketball odds. At Boston, the Celtics have won three of the last five games against Memphis but they are 0-4-1 against the basketball odds. The Celtics won 100-96 last season at home against the Grizzlies but did not cover the 13.5 point basketball betting pointspread.
Memphis has been a poor team against the bet on basketball pointspread this season. They don’t win many games and they don’t cover the basketball betting pointspread that often. The Grizzlies have a very poor offense and just an average defense and that is not a recipe for success against the bet on basketball pointspread. The Grizzlies are very young and building for the future with a lot of talented players. O.J. Mayo has led the team in scoring for much of the season as bet on basketball statistics indicate.
Boston has been great straight up at home but they are just barely above .500 versus the bet on basketball lines. The Celtics have the second best defense in the league behind Cleveland as bet on basketball stats indicate and their offense is pretty good too. They have been right around 9th of 10th in the league on offense all season as bet on basketball statistics show. Paul Pierce has been leading them in scoring for much of the season and he gets a lot of help from Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo. The Celtics will be laying a lot of points in this bet on basketball matchup against the Grizzlies but they are capable of covering.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the bet on basketball total. Three of the last five games at Boston have gone over the bet on basketball number.
