Grizzlies vs. Trail Blazers Prediction & Pick

The stars have come to play for these two teams as of late. Ja Morant has notched back-to-back triple-doubles for Memphis, while Damian Lillard has averaged a ridiculous 44.0 points over his last three games with Portland. That one-on-one battle will be exciting to watch for any fan tuning in.

The Trail Blazers are an underdog in this one for a reason. The Grizzlies own a 21-3 record at FedEx Forum and are averaging 119.7 points per home game (No. 5 in NBA). They also force 15.3 turnovers per game (No. 7 in NBA), while the Trail Blazers commit 15.6 turnovers per away game (No. 24 in NBA).

Memphis is riding an eight-game home winning streak, so back the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 120 | Trail Blazers: 114

Grizzlies vs. Trail Blazers Best Bet

It's surprising to see this game's total rank as one of the highest on Wednesday's slate. After all, the total has hit the under in each of Portland's last seven away games as well as in each of Memphis' last six games overall. The under has also cashed in six of the last seven matchup between these squads.

If those trends aren't enough, keep in mind Memphis could be without one of its best long-range shooters in Desmond Bane and Portland could be without its starting center in Jusuf Nurkic tonight. The role players could step up with massive performances and this total should still stay under 239.

Bet: Under 239 Points (-110)
