How To Bet On Magic Grizzlies – Grizzlies Try To Make A Push, Face Magic On Friday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/20/2013 6:17:43 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies are now very much under the gun. They have under 30 games in which to make something of their regular season and set themselves up for a playoff run.

Orlando Magic @ Memphis Grizzlies – Friday, February 22    
Sport betting line: No line

Why Orlando Will Win

The events you see on the hardwood from late October through the middle of April are not online poker games, but regular season NBA basketball can feel like a card game at times, and right now, the Memphis Grizzlies certainly have the look of a wild card. You just don't know which number or suit will come up with this team. Will you get an ace of diamonds or a three of clubs, a face card or a joker in the deck? Nobody in the NBA really has a feel for what to expect from this group after the All-Star break.

Realize this about Memphis: In the three weeks before the break, it lost at home to New Orleans and Phoenix, two of the bottom feeders in the Western Conference. This team has lost eight home games so far this season, and not just to good teams, either. Philadelphia and Portland, two non-playoff teams at this point in time, went into Memphis and won. The Grizzlies started their season by going 14-3. They're only 19-15 since that point in time. Once 24-10, they're 9-8 in their last 17 games. Memphis has really tailed off this season, and that's a big reason why head coach Lionel Hollins is under pressure. If he can't get this team into the second round of the playoffs this season, he could very well get axed. Orlando could swoop into Memphis under these circumstances and pull off an upset. Remember, Orlando won in Los Angeles against the Clippers earlier this season.

Why Memphis Will Win

When the best betting websites size up this game, they won't have to come up with overly complex reasons for a Memphis victory. Orlando is still the same team that has won only three times since Dec. 19. Even the Charlotte Bobcats have been slightly better than that (though Charlotte probably deserves to be seen as the worst team in the league, albeit by a small margin). Orlando is simply a resource-poor franchise in the wake of its surrender of Dwight Howard.

Moreover, with the 20-game suspension handed to forward Hedo Turkoglu, the Magic's bench is even smaller, is rotation that much thinner. Memphis is not a complete team by any stretch, but the Grizzlies should not be particularly threatened by anything Orlando brings to the table. The Grizzlies should be able to hammer the Magic in the paint and get the low-post touches they want on offense. Orlando simply won't be able to hold up in extended combat. Memphis can and should outlast the Magic here.

Who Will Win

This is a mismatch, as is the case for most games between Orlando and winning teams in either conference. The Grizzlies should dominate near the rim, and that will carry them in this contest.
