Grizzlies vs Hornets Prediction | NBA Picks
Equally important, at this point of the 2021-22 NBA regular season, Memphis is 23-9 as a favorite, 14-9 as an underdog and 20-8 ATS away, whereas Charlotte is 12-7 as a favorite, 17-21 as an underdog and 15-11 ATS at home. The Grizzlies are the better team than the Hornets, especially if bettors review the last five head-to-head matchups. Not to mention, the Grizzlies are on a four-game winning streak.
Entering this interconference rematch, Memphis is a seven-point favorite. Over their previous seven games, the Hornets won just one game. They defeated the Pistons, which is not convincing because Detroit has 12 wins for the entire season. Therefore, think about picking the Grizzlies to win, they will cover the spread and the total will go under 238. If you are new to sports betting, read our handicap betting guide.
