The Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Grizzlies vs Cavaliers prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in a rut as they've lost nine of their last 13 games overall, and they will be hoping for a better performance after getting run over by the Spurs in a 102-87 loss last night. Trey Jemison and Scottie Pippen Jr scored 14 points each, Zavier Simpson added 12 points and five assists off the bench while Jordan Goodwin tallied 10 points with 19 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 34 percent from the field and six of 30 from the 3-point line as they played great defense to start the game, holding the Spurs to just 16 points in the first quarter to take an early 14-point lead. The Grizzlies allowed the Spurs to hang around, and it cost them in the third quarter where they scored just 12 points to allow the Spurs to reclaim the lead for good.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been in poor form as they've lost eight of their last 11 games overall. The Cavs will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after falling painfully short to the Clippers in a 120-118 road defeat on Sunday. Darius Garland led the team with 28 points, eight assists and five steals, Evan Mobley and Max Strus each scored 20 points while Caris LeVert chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 80 points in the first half to lead by as many as 26 points, before they couldn't hold off the Clippers and eventually saw Paul George drain the game-winner with just 7.0 seconds left on the clock.

  • The Cavaliers rank 1st in the league for Q2 opponent points per game this season (26.8).
  • The Cavaliers are one of only two teams to lose a game when leading by 20+ points at HT this season.
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for points per game this season (105.7).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (6.5).

Grizzlies vs Cavaliers prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing a bunch of players including Jaren Jackson Jr, Yuta Watanabe and Desmond Bane to name a few, while the Cavaliers are still missing Ty Jerome and Dean Wade. The Grizzlies have been hit hard by injuries, they're stuck in their worst slump of the season and just got smashed by the Spurs last night. The Cavaliers have been playing well below their best lately, but they will be gutted with their heartbreaking loss to the Clippers on Sunday, so I'm backing the Cavaliers to bounce back in fine fashion at home.
