Grizzlies vs. Magic Prediction & Pick

The Grizzlies have been firing on all cylinders on offense lately. They're scoring at a 129.2 PPG clip over the last six games, finishing with at least 123 points in all but one of those contests. Jaren Jackson Jr. and Desmond Bane are averaging a combined 48.5 PPG over that stretch while Morant has put up 20.7 PPG on 54.8% shooting since returning from his suspension.

The Magic win games with defense, but that strategy didn't work when they lost 123-115 to the Grizzlies back in January. What's worse is that Orlando had the home-court advantage in that tilt. Now, the Magic take to the road, where they're 2-4 in their last six away games.

Unfortunately for the Magic, the Grizzlies have won 11 straight home games, having not lost at FedExForum since Feb. 5. With Memphis having its eyes set on a potential NBA Finals run, don't expect the Grizzlies to break much of a sweat en route to another home victory.

Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 126 | Magic: 116

Grizzlies vs. Magic Best Bet

The Magic might be 5-0 ATS in their last five outings, but that streak's coming to an end tonight. The Grizzlies have had Orlando's number as far as the spread is concerned, going 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings with the Magic. On top of that, Memphis has covered in five of its last six matchups against the Southeast Division.

Given that the Grizzlies already beat the Magic by eight points earlier this season, I see the home team winning by a solid margin once again.

Bet: Grizzlies -7 (-110)
