Memphis Grizzlies will be meeting Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday in Memphis, This will be the first game in the first round for those teams this season and definitely a one to watch. They have played 4 times this season and the home team won every game so 2 wins for Memphis and 2 wins for the Minnesota.
Minnesota Timberwolves had a shaky end to the regular season which did put them in the play in tournament at the end and they have beaten the Clippers 109-104 to get the 7th seed and play Vs the Grizzlies. Minnesota are 1-4 ATS last 5 games even though they have won 4 of last 6 games this season so they a lot of their games have been close recently. T.Prince is the only player out for this game.
Memphis Grizzlies are playing great basketball especially at home this season (30-11) and 10-1 straight up last 11 home games and now that they got Ja Morant back they are big favourite to take Minnesota Timberwolves down in this first game at home. Ja Morant got 21 points, 4 rebounds and 9 assists in his return Vs the Pelicans at the end of the season and should be ready for this one, Tillie is out for this game.
Minnesota are 1-4 ATS last 5 games.
Minnesota are 4-2 straight up last 6 games this season.
Minnesota games have gone Over in 5 of last 6 games.
Minnesota are 2-8 ATS last 10 games Vs the Grizzlies.

Grizzlies games have gone Over in 4 of last 5 games.

Head to Head
Memphis Grizzlies have completely owned Minnesota Timberwolves in recent years as the Grizzlies have won and covered 8 of last 10 games Vs Minnesota (2-2 in this season series), the O/U is 6-4 to the Over in those 10 games with Minnesota averaging 117.3 points and Memphis averaging 119.8 points a game.
Memphis Grizzlies are now one of the favourite to win it all after an outstanding season for Memphis with a record of 56-26. Memphis got Ja Morant back in the last game of the season and he is ready for this one Vs a very inconsistent Minnesota team that will have to prove they can beat Memphis at home. I like what I'm seeing from the Grizzlies this season and I like them to win and cover this game so give me the Grizzlies here.
Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -6.5 (-110)
