Suns Grizzlies Betting Tips – Rested Grizzlies Try To Hammer Suns Into Submission

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/3/2013 5:51:03 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies have reshaped their roster with the Rudy Gay trade, but will the Phoenix Suns be able to take advantage of any dislocations or disruptions that might harm the Griz?

Why Phoenix Will Win

Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to respect the way in which the Suns have persevered. They are at the bottom of the Western Conference alongside the New Orleans Hornets, but they've played a simply brutal schedule in recent weeks. The Suns were dealt the slate from hell in the middle of January, having to play Brooklyn, Chicago, Oklahoma City, and Milwaukee in consecutive games.
Later in the month, Phoenix had to play the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio, an improved Dallas team, and the big-name Los Angeles Lakers in consecutive contests. Some teams would go 0-8 or 1-7 against that schedule. Phoenix is 3-5 in that stretch, an indication that this team – limited though it is at the offensive end of the floor – is still quite competitive. Despite losing regular head coach Alvin Gentry earlier in the month of January, the Suns are playing hard. Interim coach Lindsey Hunter earns the respect and trust of his players, something that is admirable and hardly a regular part of NBA life.

A lot of teams would bail on an interim coach and merely go through the motions, but you're not seeing that with Phoenix right now. The Suns beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night with rugged defense, and since the Grizzlies have traded away Rudy Gay in a deal that was announced on Wednesday, they are now an easier team to guard. Phoenix could very realistically contain Memphis' offense, and if that happens, this could be a fight to the finish in the state of Tennessee.

Why Memphis Will Win

When football betting gurus with relatively minimal basketball expertise assess the chances of the favored Grizzlies, they will acknowledge that they don't know everything there is to know about basketball. Yet, they can look at the schedule and realize that Memphis has three full days off before this game. The Grizzlies' most recent game was on Friday, Feb. 1 against the Washington Wizards.

Memphis took all of Super Bowl weekend off, plus Monday the fourth. It's one thing when the underdog in a given matchup is playing the favorite at home with ample rest, but in this case, it's the favorite which is playing at home with abundant downtime and the ability to recharge for the final week and a half before the All-Star break. Memphis is a much better team than Phoenix to begin with, but a three-day getaway from the court in the middle of a homestand will make the Grizzlies that much sharper against the Suns. This is simply a terrible spot for Phoenix on the road.

Who Will Win

It’s not a debate: Memphis is playing mediocre ball, but Phoenix is playing worse at the moment. The Grizzlies should be able to get healthy against the struggling Suns.
