Sports Betting Preview on this first ever NBA Play In Tournament between the eighth-seeded Portland Trail Blazers and the ninth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. Tipoff is set for this Saturday, August 15 at 2:30pm et. The Blazers are currently -6 point favorites at the -110 price and the over/under is at 233 total points.
Just two weeks ago these two battled each other in an overtime game where Portland got the 140-135 victory. CJ McCollum 33 points and Damian Lillard stepped it up like always and put up 11 of the Blazers 16 overtime points.
Memphis must win twice to advance to the NBA playoffs, while Portland just needs to defeat the Grizzlies only once. The Grizzlies will still be without forward Jaren Jackson Jr.
Jackson in the last matchup against the Blazers scored 33 points, so that production will be greatly missed. The x factor in this game will be what teammate steps it up and puts up production like Jackson had in that first bubble matchup. Memphis is 2-7 against the spread in their last 9 games and the total has gone under in 6 of the Grizzlies last 7 games.
The Blazers opponents have feasted on Portland from three-point land in the bubble, but that might not be a problem against this Grizzlies team, who’s shooting just 30% on three-pointers in the bubble. Portland is 6-2-1 against the spread in their last 9 games and the total has gone under in 4 of the Blazers last 6 games against the Grizzlies.
With Jaren Jackson Jr out for Memphis and no 3-point advantage against these red hot Blazers lead by Damian Lillard, our numbers so the best opportunity to make money on this Grizzlies/Blazers game is to take Portland -3 Points in the First Half at the -110 price.
