The Nets are coming off a 120-116 loss to the visiting LA Clippers on New Year’s Day, and now sit one game back of Chicago in the race for first place in the Eastern Conference. The Grizzlies travel to Brooklyn riding high after extending their current win streak to four games with a decisive 118-105 home win over San Antonio on New Year’s Eve.

Brooklyn is a 6-point favourite to win on the NBA odds, with a total of 228.0.

Grizzlies vs. Nets NBA Betting Odds

Monday night’s matchup at Barclays Center marks the first of two scheduled meetings this season between these two teams. The Grizzlies have dominated in recent head-to-head action, winning outright and against the spread in four straight clashes. Memphis also enjoys a steady run of success at the sportsbooks when visiting the Nets, covering nine times during an impressive 8-2 run. However, the Grizzlies have lost outright in their past two trips to Brooklyn as betting underdogs.

The OVER has prevailed in eight of the past 11 overall clashes between these teams, but the UNDER has paid out in their past two dates in Brooklyn. Despite emerging as a steady favourite on the NBA futures, the Nets have been a shaky home bet this season. Brooklyn has covered just once in 12 home dates. Conversely, the Grizzlies have covered in eight of nine overall, and have won outright in four of their past five as road underdogs.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies are enjoying a steady run of success despite being forced to juggle their lineup due to an ongoing battle with COVID-19. Small forward Kyle Anderson is the latest player to enter health and safety protocols, and will be unavailable on Monday. He joins the team’s second leading scorer, Dillon Brooks, who is set to miss a fifth straight game, as well as shooting guards De’Anthony Melton and John Konchar. Fortunately for Memphis, Ja Morant has yet to be bitten by the COVID bug. Morant has emerged as a steady presence, averaging 34.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game over his past three outings. However, the Grizzlies’ rising star has averaged just 11 points and four rebounds per game in two all-time appearances in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Nets

Currently mired in their longest home losing streak in two years, the Nets should soon show the benefit from their steady return to health after seeing their lineup decimated by COVID-19. Kevin Durant has quickly returned to form after missing three games while on the team’s COVID list, averaging 30.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game in two outings since his return. More important has been the stellar play of James Harden during the team’s recent coronavirus crisis. Harden has carried the Brooklyn offence over the difficult holiday season, averaging 35.5 points, 12 assists, and 10.5 rebounds over the past four games.
