As part of the NBA regular season match, Dallas will play against Memphis. Most likely, the upcoming match will be very rich in highlights. Opponents represent the Western Conference, and are also quite nearby in the intermediate standings. The hosts are seventh and one position ahead of the guests. However, between the teams as many as 6.5 games behind difference. Will Grizzlies save their place in the play-off zone? – Our prediction is here for you.
The Grizzlies in general have become one of the main sensations this season, at least for the moment. The team has just bursted into the play-off zone and for a long time kept the eighth line in the West with 3.5 games ahead of the Portland and Sacramento.
Memphis continues to play the way they like. Fast and offensive basketball brings quite good results. Now the guests have an excellent opportunity to compete for success in spite of their rivals running in quite the same pace. In any case, Memphis is expected to show a good game in attack, and this should be converted into a considerable amount of points.
The Grizzlies have played well over the last week and have won their last three games. They dominated their opponents by an average of 31.6 points in the three wins and will be hoping for a similar result when they try to pick up their fourth win in a row on Friday night. They will be going for their fourth consecutive win as underdogs against the spread when they face Dallas on Friday.
Dallas is one of the leaders of the Western Conference – of course, competing with teams from Los Angeles is incredibly difficult, but the Mavericks have excellent prospects. Dallas is seventh in the Western Conference standings, 10.5 games behind the Los Angeles Lakers, who lead the conference. They are only five games behind the Los Angeles Clippers, who are second, and will try to reduce the distance between them with a win on Friday.
Grizzlies vs Mavericks Prediction
A difficult duel, and therefore a very interesting one. The Mavericks are one of the best offensive teams in the league, averaging 116.6 points per game. In the last four meetings of these teams, the smallest thing they were able to score for two was 228 points, so in order not to guess which one will win, this is not so easy, given the fact that both teams are very similar in many ways, and the results are identical.
Full-Game Side Bet
This will be an interesting game. You have two teams that are kind of stuck in the seventh and eighth seed spots, in the West. Both teams counter each other, but Memphis has been the more efficient team lately, and they need to keep rolling. With the Mavs winning two of the last three games between the two teams, Dallas is the best bet.
Prediction: Grizzlies +8
Full-Game Total Pick
This game will go under 235.5 points because both teams will make a lot of threes and the Grizzlies defense will put on another great performance, against the slightly banged up Mavericks. Memphis scores 112.8 points per game and Dallas is at 116.6.
Prediction: Under 235.5 Game Total
