Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz Predictions

After finishing eighth in the West with a record of 38-34 SU last year, Memphis briefly kept that same ball rolling with another pedestrian start to this 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.

However, Memphis has arguably been the hottest team in basketball since that opening stretch, considering the Grizzlies boast sturdy records of 46-13 SU and 41-18 ATS across their last 59 games – while scoring 117.3 OPPG and allowing just 106.9 DPPG during that timeframe.

On the other hand, Utah absolutely dominated to open to this season, as the Jazz kicked things off with an impressive 26-9 SU and 17-17-2 ATS stretch – with 20 of those SU victories coming by 10+ PTS.

The Jazz have been on quite the injury rollercoaster since mid-January though, considering Utah enters Tuesday riding a bumpy 20-23 SU and 15-27-1 ATS skid – while tallying just 111 OPPG and surrendering 109.6 DPPG across that window.

I’ll take the over here, as the Grizzlies are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS since Ja Morant’s latest injury, while generating 124.8 OPPG and allowing just 107.5 DPPG during that span – likely presenting an uphill battle for a Jazz squad that’s surrendering 114.3 DPPG across their latest 1-6 SU skid.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting Analysis

  • SU: 55-23
  • ATS: 51-27
  • O/U: 40-37-1

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 kick off December – yet quickly stole the spotlight with a trio of upset victories and a 7-3 SU record across that window.

However, Memphis has absolutely dominated since that point, considering the Grizzlies enter Tuesday riding an impressive 46-13 SU and 41-18 ATS stretch – while racking up 117.3 OPPG and allowing just 106.9 DPPG during that timeframe.

Utah Jazz Betting Analysis

  • SU: 46-32
  • ATS: 31-44-3
  • O/U: 35-41-2

The Jazz have been one of the most consistent squads in the West across the last few regular seasons, which is no fluke, as Utah continuously maintains a very well-balanced attack, highlighted by Donovan Mitchell and company leading the league in offensive efficiency by a narrow margin (1.128 OE) – while also ranking 12th in defensive efficiency (1.075 DE).

However, Utah’s consistency quickly fades without the combined presence of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, considering the Jazz’ top-ranked offensive attack is averaging just 111 OPPG across their latest 20-23 SU stretch – with nearly half of those SU losses coming in the absence of Mitchell or Gobert (10).

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz Head-to-Head

The Jazz swept a three-game regular-season set against Memphis last year, with the first two matchups cruising over the total at an average of 233.5 PPG – while their third meeting stayed under with a score of 111-107 (U 225). However, Memphis is 2-0 SU against Utah this year, with both matchups soaring over the total at an average of 232.5 PPG.

Key Players to Watch

  • MEM: Desmond Bane - SF (18.2 PPG, 4.4 REB, 2.8 AST)
  • MEM: Jaren Jackson Jr. - PF (16.3 PPG, 5.8 REB, 2.3 BLK)
  • UTA: Donovan Mitchell - SG (26.1 PPG, 4.1 REB, 5.4 AST)
  • UTA: Rudy Gobert - C (15.3 PPG, 14.7 REB, 2.1 BLK)

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz Betting Conclusion

After extending their ATS losing streak to seven games with a road loss to the Warriors on Saturday night (L, 111-107), the Jazz return home for Tuesday’s contest as short favorites over the Grizzlies at Vivint Arena – marking the third time Memphis has been an underdog across their last five games.

I’ll back Memphis here, as the Jazz are 1-6 SU and 0-7 ATS in their last seven games, while scoring just 106.9 OPPG and surrendering 114.3 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for another unfavorable matchup against a Grizzlies squad that’s averaging 124.8 OPPG across their 6-0 SU, 5-1 ATS run since Morant’s latest injury.
