One Game Separates 4th and 7th in West
The Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Clippers will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at STAPLES Center.
Oddsmakers currently have the Grizzlies listed as 1-point favorites versus the Clippers, while the game’s total is sitting at 197.
In their last action, Los Angeles was a 109-98 winner at home against the Phoenix Suns. They covered the -4.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (207) was profitable news for UNDER bettors. The Clippers temporarily put an end to their losing ways on Monday. A 109-98 win over the Phoenix Suns snapped a season-high six-game losing streak. They have been without point guard Chris Paul (hamstring) and forward Blake Griffin (knee surgery).
Last time out for Memphis, they were a 116-102 loser as they battled the LA Lakers on the road. The Grizzlies failed to cover in the match as a -4.5-point favorite, while 218 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors. The Grizzlies had won four of their last six before their debacle against the Lakers. The good news Tuesday was center Marc Gasol. He tweaked his left ankle in Saturday’s victory over the Sacramento Kings. Gasol played and led the team with a team-high 22 points, seven assists and six rebounds against the Lakers.
