Spurs vs. Grizzlies NBA Betting Odds

NBA OddsNBA betting players figured Memphis would implode, and early in the season with the Allen Iverson move, it looked like they would. But the Grizzlies are just four games behind San Antonio as of Friday, and four games out of the final playoff spot. The Grizzlies will host a Spurs team that will be playing a back-to-back.

Spurs vs Grizzlies odds – Saturday, March 6, 8:00 PM ET

The Spurs (34-24 as of Friday) will be completing the second half of a home-and-home with New Orleans on Friday night, but part one resulted in a 106-92 win for the Spurs in San Antonio. George Hill led six Spurs in double figures with 23 points, while Tim Duncan added 22 points and nine rebounds. San Antonio shot 50.6% from the field as they improved to 21-10 at the AT&T Center this season, and now they are 24-6 when they score 100 points. DeJuan Blair’s numbers weren’t that great (eight points, six rebounds, four assists, two blocks in 26 minutes), but the Spurs were +18 when he was on the court, and the rookie is getting some good minutes for a coach who doesn’t normally play young guys.

The Grizzlies (32-30) shot 52.6% from the floor in a 105-96 win in Chicago on Thursday, and Zach Randolph slaughtered the Bulls’ interior defense, going for 31 points and 18 rebounds. O.J. Mayo had 20 points and nine rebounds, while Rudy Gay added 17 points and five steals for the Grizzlies, who had all five starters score at least 12 points, and they held a 46-31 edge on the glass. The Grizzlies committed 16 turnovers, which they’ll have to fix before the Spurs come to town.

Gambling software should favor the Grizzlies at home, where they are 18-13, and they beat the Spurs here by a score of 92-86 back on January 16th. These two have split a pair of meetings this season, with the home team winning each time. Duncan has averaged 21.0 points and 8.5 rebounds, while Randolph has put up 21.0 points and 14.0 rebounds, and the winner of this battle in the post should pretty much decide the victorious team in this game. This will be the second back-to-back for the Spurs this week, and they’re not the youngest squad in the league any more. The Spurs are 3-5 in the second half of back-to-back games this year, and the Grizzlies will be eager to snap a seven-game losing streak at FedEx Forum, where they won 11 straight earlier this year. Take Randolph to put the Grizzlies on his shoulders and carry them to a much-needed win on Saturday.
