NBA Picks: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies

0 of 3

    The Memphis Grizzlies have held 58 of their 66 opponents to under 100 points this season, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks on Wednesday night, when they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the FedExForum.

    Sports bettors will find that the Grizzlies are one-point home favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 191.5.

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

Oklahoma City Thunder

1 of 3

    The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 11 of their last 14 games, but look to bounce back from a 114-104 setback to the Denver Nuggets as 9.5-point home favorites on Tuesday.

    Sports bettors will find that the Thunder are 11-3 against the spread off an upset loss as a favorite during the 2012-13 NBA season.

Memphis Grizzlies

2 of 3

    The Memphis Grizzlies snapped a two-game losing streak last time out. They picked up a convincing 92-77 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves as 12.5-point home favorites on Monday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Grizzlies are 14-6 against the spread as home favorites of three points or less, while the OVER is 14-6 in that situation.

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Memphis Grizzlies as one of their sports betting picks on Wednesday night, as they've gone 19-13-1 against the spread at home this season.
