Golden State is a 2-point favourite to win on the NBA odds, with a total of 221.0.

Warriors vs. Grizzlies NBA Betting Odds

The Grizzlies have made modest gains on the Tuesday NBA betting lines, but continue to lag as 2-point home underdogs. The total has inched up to 221 since opening at 220, with betting action evenly split between the OVER and UNDER.

Tuesday night’s matchup at FedExForum marks the third of four scheduled meetings between these Western Conference rivals. These clubs split a pair of dates at Chase Arena earlier this season, with the Warriors posting a 113-104 win as 5.5-point chalk in their most recent clash on December 23. Overall, Golden State has claimed victory in just four of 10 dates with Memphis, while failing to tally consecutive wins over that stretch. These two teams have also taken turns posting outright and against the spread wins over their past six meetings in Memphis.

Low scoring has been a constant theme in recent clashes. The UNDER currently enjoys a 7-1-1 run, with total points topping 120 on just two occasions. Overall, the Grizzlies have covered eight times during their current win streak. Memphis has also won outright in three of five this season as a home dog, and has covered in 10 of 15 while pegged as a home underdog by three or fewer points. The Warriors have covered just twice in six outings, and has won and covered just three of seven when pegged as road chalk by three or fewer points.

Golden State Warriors

After enduring a shaky two-game stretch during which he went just 5-for-20 from three-point country, Stephen Curry rediscovered his form in Sunday’s victory over the Cavaliers. Curry racked up a game-high 28 points while hitting 4-for-11 from beyond the arc. The 33-year-old has also piled up big totals in his past three appearances versus Memphis, averaging 42.7 points. However, he has topped 28 points just once in his past six visits to Memphis. Andrew Wiggins has steadily produced in recent road outings, averaging 22.5 points per game over his past four, and was the team’s top point-getter in each of their past two road outings.

Memphis Grizzlies

Ja Morant has emerged as a force during the Grizzlies current win streak. The talented 22-year-old point guard led the team in scoring in six straight games early in the streak, averaging 30.7 points per game over that stretch. However, Morant was forced to miss the team’s 123-108 win over the Clippers this past weekend due to a thigh injury. He subsequently tallied just 16 points while going 4-for-9 from the field in Sunday’s win over the Lakers. However, big man Jaren Jackson Jr. stepped up to fill the void on Sunday, draining 21 points and adding 12 rebounds for his second double-double of the season.
