Nets vs. Grizzlies Predictions
After finishing second in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, Brooklyn posted a similarly triumphant start to the season, as the Nets opened with an impressive 26-14 SU run – with 15 of those victories coming by eight points or more.
The Nets have been incredibly inconsistent since trading away James Harden though, considering Brooklyn enters Wednesday riding a head-scratching 12-20 SU skid – while scoring just 112.2 OPPG and surrendering 115.9 DPPG across that window.
On the other hand, Memphis stumbled out to a surprisingly slow start to the season, as the Grizzlies opened with a lackluster 9-10 SU and 10-9 ATS skid – with nine of those losses coming by 10+ PTS.
The Grizzlies have arguably been the hottest team in basketball since that opening stretch though, considering Memphis boasts records of 40-13 SU and 36-17 ATS across their last 53 games – while tallying 116.4 OPPG and allowing just 106.9 DPPG during that timeframe.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Grizzlies are 6-3 SU and 4-5 ATS in their last nine games, while generating 120 OPPG and allowing 111.3 DPPG across that span – setting the stage for a tough home matchup against a Nets squad that’s 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three matchups with Kyrie Irving (137 OPPG).

Brooklyn Nets Betting Analysis
- SU: 38-34
- ATS: 30-40-2
- O/U: 37-34-2
After a heartbreaking Game 7 conference semi-final set, the Nets bounced back with an excellent start to this season, as Brooklyn cruised into January boasting a 26-14 SU record – yet still ranked near the bottom of the barrel ATS at that point with a record of 17-22-1 ATS.
Brooklyn completely fell apart during KD’s latest absence though, considering Nets enter Tuesday riding a frustrating 12-20 SU skid, which includes a 6-10 SU tally in matchups with Kyrie – and a 6-10 SU mark in matchups without him.
Memphis Grizzlies Betting Analysis
- SU: 49-23
- ATS: 46-26
- O/U: 38-33-1
After finishing eighth in the West with a record of 38-34 SU last year, Memphis briefly flew under the league’s radar by posting a 9-10 SU start to this season, inevitably getting tagged as underdogs in seven-of-ten matchups to open December – yet quickly stole the spotlight with a trio of upset victories and a 7-3 SU record across that window.
The Grizzlies have absolutely dominated since their opening stretch though, considering Memphis enters Friday riding an impressive 39-12 SU and 35-16 ATS stretch – with 12 of those SU victories coming in matchups they were underdogs in.
Nets vs. Grizzlies Head-to-Head
The Grizzlies won two-of-three regular-season matchups against Memphis last year, with the first contest staying under the total at a score of 116-111 (U 228) – while the second soared over with a score of 115-110 (O 219). The most recent matchup between these teams took place back in January of this season though, which resulted in another relatively low-scoring victory for Memphis (118-104, U 229).
Key Players to Watch
- BKN: Kevin Durant - SF (29.6 PPG, 7.2 REB, 6.1 AST)
- BKN: Kyrie Irving - PG (27.7 PPG, 4.7 REB, 5.3 AST)
- MEM: Ja Morant - PG (27.6 PPG, 5.7 REB, 6.7 AST)
- MEM: Desomond Bane - SF (17.9 PPG, 4.5 REB, 2.7 AST)
Nets vs. Grizzlies Betting Conclusion
After posting back-to-back home wins over the Blazers and Jazz, the Nets hit the road for Wednesday’s contest as short underdogs against the Grizzlies at FedExForum – marking the ninth time Brooklyn has been an underdog across their last 14 games.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Nets are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games, while tallying 124.9 OPPG and allowing just 111.2 DPPG during that timeframe – likely presenting an unfavorable home matchup for a Grizzlies squad that’s surrendering 111.3 DPPG across their latest 4-5 ATS skid.
