Grizzlies vs Mavericks Prediction & Pick
The Mavericks have dominated the recent matchups between these two teams, winning seven of their last 10 outings against the Grizzlies. Dallas held Memphis to 97 or fewer points in all four meetings last season, while also picking up victories in the last three.
The Mavericks will also have the added boost of this game being their home opener, having gone 27-6 in their last 33 games at American Airlines Center. As solid as the Grizzlies are, they've only won three of their last nine road games.
This will be an exciting matchup to watch as Doncic and Morant go head-to-head, however, I'm siding with the Mavs here.
Final Score Prediction: Mavericks: 121 | Grizzlies: 114

Grizzlies vs Mavericks Best Bet
At the end of the day, both of these teams are capable of catching fire and going on runs. Doncic and Morant are two of the best young players in the game, always elevating those around them. I'm expecting a fiery atmosphere tonight where both sides bring out the best in the other, leading to a high-scoring affair.
I'll take the total hitting over 219.5 points in this game.
