Brooklyn Nets vs. Memphis Grizzlies Betting Preview and Pick

The second half of the 2023-24 NBA season is now well underway, and the playoff races are starting to heat up in each conference. There is an interesting game set to take place on Monday night as the Brooklyn Nets will visit the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Brooklyn is coming into this game searching for answers as they have lost four straight games, and are without a win since February 10th. The Nets are now sitting at 21-35 on the year, and they are not going to be a playoff team this season. 

Memphis has dealt with a number of major injuries this season, and that is the biggest reason that they have gone just 20-37 so far this season. The Grizzlies have won two of their last three games, but they are not a great team. 

The Brooklyn Nets are slim 1.5-point betting favorites over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. 

Nets Need to Score

The Brooklyn Nets are a team that continues to search for offense, and that is going to be something to watch moving forward. Brooklyn is scoring 112.5 points per game this season, but that’s not good enough in the league today. 

Mikal Bridges is setting the tone with 21.5 points per game, and he is a player that does have the ability to take over on offense. Bridges will need some help in this game, and the Nets don’t always shoot the ball well. 

The Nets have not been a great defensive team over the last few weeks, and that is something that will need to change moving forward as well. 

Grizzlies Want to Get Stops

The Memphis Grizzlies are not a very explosive team on offense, but they have still been able to win games on the defensive end of the floor. Memphis is allowing less than 107 points per game this season, and that does allow them to stay in games. 

This team just doesn’t have a ton of offensive weapons left that are healthy, and they will be trying to slow down the pace of this game. Memphis does have a growing superstar in Desmond Bane and he is scoring 24.4 points per game. 

The Grizzlies continue to have a great home court advantage, and that is going to be something to watch in this game, and in other matchups moving forward. 

Grizzlies Get it Done

The Brooklyn Nets just haven’t been a good team since the All-Star Break and it looks as if this team is going to be limping to the finish. Brooklyn just doesn’t have the talent to keep up with other teams in the league, and they struggle to shoot. 

Memphis is not going to be a great team this season, but they are still a team that has a ton of pride. The Grizzlies always have the ability to play well on their home floor, and that will be the case in this game. 

Bet on the Grizzlies to win this game outright on their home floor as they take care of business and pull off the upset.
