Memphis Grizzlies 2021-22 NBA Southwest Division Futures Preview

Memphis Grizzlies 2021-22 NBA Southwest Division Futures Preview

To be exact, the Southwest Division was not supposed to be the property of the Memphis Grizzlies. The Dallas Mavericks are a perennial contender. And bring marquee man Luka Doncic to the hardwood. Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets are faded powers for NBA bets. In comparison, the New Orleans Pelicans were touted as the team of the future with Zion Williamson. Since going #1 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft, Williamson has battled injuries. Thus, it is the team-oriented Grizzlies that have filled the gap. Memphis is making gamblers quite happy with a strong profit margin.

2021-22 NBA Southwest Division SBG Odds Overview

To be exact, the secret is out on the Grizzlies. The offshore betting question for Memphis is if they can maintain their wagering value. Squares are likely to make that more challenging. Meanwhile, Dallas is seen as the only realistic alternative in the Southwest Division. Problematic is the Mavericks’ inconsistent betting value and lack of depth.

Memphis Grizzlies -200

Late on, the Grizzles have gotten the cash in seven of their most recent eight games. Memphis went under the total in five of its last six outings. Now the Grizzlies stand at 27-14 straight up, 26-15 against the spread, and 20-21 under the total. Memphis ranks 6th in the NBA for scoring offense and 15th for points allowed.

Dallas Mavericks +150

Despite consistent public attention, Dallas has maintained their recent board value. The Mavericks have covered four of their most recent five outings. Five of their last six games stayed under the total. In sum, Dallas stands at 21-18 straight up, 20-19 against the spread, and 13-25 under the total. The Mavericks have NBA metrics of 24th for scoring offense and 3rd for points allowed.

San Antonio Spurs +8000

Once upon a time, head coach George Popovich ran one of the greatest dynasties in all sports. Now the Spurs are a loser at 15-23 straight up, 21-17 against the spread, and 19-17 over the total. Most important of all, San Antonio failed to cover four of its most recent five games. NBA metrics show the Spurs ranked 10th for scoring offense and 23rd for points allowed.

New Orleans Pelicans +10000

Of major concern is that the Pelicans have covered just two of their last six games. Five of their most recent seven games went over the total. New Orleans stands at 14-25 straight up, 17-22 vs. the odds, and 17-21 under the total. To summarize, the Pelicans rank 25th for scoring offense and 21st for points allowed. Zion Williamson is out indefinitely with a foot injury.

Houston Rockets +50000

On the whole, there is not a more hopeless team for NBA Bets than the Rockets. Houston is 11-29 straight up, 17-22-1 against the spread, and 23-17 over the total. In sum, Houston ranks 20th for scoring offense and 29th for points allowed. The Rockets paid in just one of their last ten games.
