Randy’s Pick

Laying chalk with the Utah Jazz and the way their defense is playing out of the gate isn't ideal, but this is a game they should win nonetheless. The Memphis Grizzlies can't get their offense going, and the defense could use improvements as well. The problem is the Grizzlies are dealing with a ton of injuries and that obviously includes their best player in Ja Morant. I don't see the Grizzlies getting their act together until they get some players back. Unfortunately, it could be too late by then. Not panicking yet, though. Still, give me the Jazz and small chalk.
