Warriors vs Grizzlies Props
1. 1st Quarter Alternate Total Points: Under 53.5 (+182)
The Warriors are 1-4 since Steph Curry became sidelined with strained ligaments in his foot. The Grizzlies have won four straight without injured PG Ja Morant (knee), and 8-of-9 while piling up points to move them into a tie for league-high scoring at 115.3 PPG. The Warriors still rank top three in defensive efficiency, and coach Steve Kerr will plan accordingly knowing Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will sit out. In three recent road games without Curry, the Warriors have scored 24, 23 and 17 points in the first quarter. Ja Morant's absence only strengthens this letdown spot as we project less early scoring to start the game and shoot for nearly 2/1 odds on an alternate points prop.
2. Alternate Total Points - Under 213.5 (+190)
The Warriors are 11.4 points per 100 possessions better with Curry on the floor, With all the additional injuries and player absences in this contest and the total already dropping, we'll grab another alternate game total at nearly 2/1 odds to go under.
3. Away Team Total Points - Under 105 (-118)
The Grizzlies have the best transition offense in the league, but that changes with Jo Morant out. Well, sort of, as Memphis is still 17-2 SU when playing without their star point guard. Depth is a real strength for Memphis, and the Warriors surprisingly have a poor turnover rate (15.2%), which ranks near the bottom of the league. In the final game of a five-game road trip and resting many starters, this does not set up well for the Warriors and their scoring chances.
