Grizzlies vs. Spurs Game Info

  • Date: Monday, January 9, 2023
  • Time: 8:00 PM ET
  • Venue: FedExForum -- Memphis, Tennessee
  • Coverage: BSSE and BSSW

The surging Memphis Grizzlies (26-13) will play host to the slumping San Antonio Spurs (13-27) in one of the six NBA matchups scheduled for Monday, Jan. 9.

Winning has become second nature to the Grizzlies, who picked up their sixth straight victory with a 123-118 win over the Utah Jazz on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Spurs fell 121-116 to the Boston Celtics on Saturday, marking the fifth time in the last seven days that San Antonio has come up short.

Do the Grizzlies have what it takes to extend their winning streak yet again? Or will the Spurs break out of their funk in a trip to FedExForum?

Grizzlies vs. Spurs Prediction & Pick

The Grizzlies have been beating up on the Spurs for quite some time now, winning each of the last eight meetings between these two teams. San Antonio hasn't beaten Memphis since December 2020, losing each of the last eight clashes by an average of 11.1 points.

The Spurs' offense also tends to disappear when facing the Grizzlies on the road, averaging just 102 points in their last three trips to FedExForum. Considering how the Spurs allow the second-most points (121.9 PPG) with the worst road scoring margin (minus-11.1) and the Grizzlies own the seventh-best home offense (118.6 PPG), I don't see that trend changing anytime soon.

The Grizzlies are the clear-cut better team and shouldn't have any issues winning tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 129 | Spurs: 114

Grizzlies vs. Spurs Best Bet

After these two teams combined for 246 points in their first 2022-23 meeting, I have my eyes on the over again. After all, the over has been hit in 10 of the Spurs' last 11 games, as well as in each of their last seven on the road. Furthermore, the over is 3-0 in the Grizzlies' last three games — a stretch where Memphis has averaged 125.7 PPG — third best in the NBA.

With the Spurs also averaging 117.0 points in their last three outings, surpassing 238 points is more than a realistic goal.

Bet: Over 238 Points (-110)
