Grizzlies -4 vs Jazz
I would bet this bigger if the Grizzlies weren’t just coming back from 9 days on the road but they’re so consistent that I have to play them at least small. And the big thing is this game is Rudy Gobert’s out – the Jazz are 1-6 this year with him out. Every loss by more than 4 and average loss margin 11.7 ppg. Jazz struggle defending inside without him and the Jazz have been in a funk even when Donovan Mitchell plays – 1-4 their last 5 with him playing. Bane and Clarke came back the other night for Memphis. Bogdonovic playing through an injury for Utah and in a shooting slump. This is a 2 unit if the Grizzlies aren’t coming back off a long road trip, 1 unit taking into account some small situational risk. Jazz struggles right now likely outweigh the tough spot for the Grizzlies and the Grizzlies should have plenty of opportunities to drive to the basket if their shots aren’t falling consistently.
