NBA Picks: Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies

1 of 4

    The Golden State Warriors (30-19) have allowed 259 combined points in their last two games, which is important to consider when making your pro basketball picks on Friday night, when they take on the Memphis Grizzlies (30-18) at FedExForum.

    Sports bettors will find that the Warriors are 3.5-point road underdogs in the NBA betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total is 192 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Western Conference affair from a betting perspective, while offering up an against-the-spread pick along the way.

Golden State Warriors

2 of 4

    The Golden State Warriors have dropped back-to-back games, including a 119-98 setback to the Oklahoma City Thunder as 11-point road underdogs on Wednesday night.

    Sports bettors will find that the Warriors are 3-0 straight up and against the spread as road underdogs of 3.5 to six points this year. 

Memphis Grizzlies

3 of 4

    The Memphis Grizzlies have dropped three of their last four games, including a 103-92 defeat to the Atlanta Hawks as two-point road favorites on Wednesday night.

    Sports bettors will find that the Grizzlies are 4-2 straight up and against the spread as home favorites of 3.5 to six points during the 2012-13 NBA campaign. 

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Golden State Warriors as one of their NBA picks against the spread on Friday night, as the road team has covered the number in the last six meetings in this series.
