Grizzlies at Timberwolves picks and expectations
Grizzlies 117, Timberwolves 112
LEAN GRIZZLIES (- 145) since their ML is just 30 pennies on the dollar more costly than their spread.
Yet, I favor Memphis laying the focuses at a less expensive sticker cost in light of the fact that these groups have a comparable character and the Grizzlies are far more effective.
The two groups like to get out on the move by constraining turnovers or off of live bounce back. Be that as it may, Memphis is outexecuting Minnesota on the whole “four variables” in this series.
It appears like Minnesota and Towns have no solution for the Grizzlies’ change of sitting C Steven Adams and playing more athletic bigs who can remain before Towns on the border. KAT has been causing problems early and has been a non-factor upsettingly in Games 2 and 3.
Besides, this Minnesota group feels like last season’s Memphis season finisher group. The Grizzlies made last postseason through the play-in competition and took Game 1 versus the Utah Jazz prior to losing the following 4 games. I think the T-wolves have a comparable destiny in these end of the season games.
It’s just a LEAN GRIZZLIES (- 145) in light of the fact that I’m certain enough in them to lay the focuses at a less expensive cost.

Against the spread
Wager GRIZZLIES – 2.5 (- 115) in view of the past investigation and this is a substantially more productive spot for Memphis.
The Grizzlies are 6-3 ATS as 1-to-2.5-point top picks, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 visits to Minnesota and 13-7 ATS as street top choices with an or more 3.1 ATS edge. While the T-wolves are 3-10 ATS as 1-to-2.5-point dark horses and 20-23-1 ATS versus groups with a triumphant record.
The GRIZZLIES LAYING THE POINTS is my #1 bet in this game.
Incline UNDER 232.5 (- 110), if by any means, since this Grizzlies-Timberwolves is by a long shot the quickest paced series in the end of the season games, Memphis has the most noteworthy free-toss endeavor rate and Minnesota has the fourth most elevated 3-point endeavor rate.
Nonetheless, this all out still feels too high in light of the fact that neither one of the groups plays great half-court offense and the Under has traded out 4 of the last 5 no holds barred gatherings.
