Welcome to our expert NBA sports handicapper’s analysis of the Memphis Grizzlies vs Denver Nuggets game, which is set to kick off on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. Our team has analyzed the pre-game information and injury list to provide you with our opinion on who we think will win the game and our predictions for the final score, moneyline, against the spread, and over/under.
Both teams are dealing with some injuries, but the Nuggets are in a slightly better position. Collin Gillespie (lower leg) and Zeke Nnaji (shoulder) will both be out for the Nuggets, while Aaron Gordon (ribs) won’t play in Saturday’s game.
In addition, Steven Adams (knee) has been ruled out for the Grizzlies.
Based on the recent performances of both teams and the injury list, we predict that the Nuggets will win this game with a score of 117-111. Although the Grizzlies have won three of their last five games, they have not performed well against the spread. On the other hand, the Nuggets have won eight of their last ten games, and their attack is ranked first in both field goal and 3-point percentage.
Our pick for the moneyline is the Nuggets (+115). With their recent success and the absence of Aaron Gordon, we believe the Nuggets have a good chance of winning this game. Although it won’t be an easy fight, we expect Denver to succeed in the closing minutes.
Against the Spread
While the Nuggets are the better pick for the moneyline, we advise against betting on the spread for this game. The Grizzlies have not been performing well against the spread lately, and the Nuggets have been performing well enough that the spread is too close to call.
Our pick for the over/under is the UNDER 235.5 (-110). The Grizzlies have been performing well after an ATS loss, and their recent record suggests they can keep the Nuggets from scoring too much. Additionally, the Under has been successful in the previous six games between these teams overall and the last four meetings between these teams in Memphis.
Based on our analysis of the pre-game information and injury list, we predict that the Nuggets will win the game with a score of 117-111. Therefore, our pick for the moneyline is the Nuggets, while we advise against betting on the spread. Finally, we suggest betting on the Under for the over/under.
