PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS VS MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES
Grizzlies (+2.5) $1.87

The Grizzlies are out to continue their impressive start to the season when they travel to Portland.

Memphis are 2-1 to start the season and can count themselves unlucky not to be 3-0, after dominating the LAkers for large stretches of the game last time out.

The Grizzlies’ success can be largely attributed to the form of Ja Morant, the 2020/21 Rookie of the Year is currently the league’s leading scorer (35) averaging four more points than the next best in Curry.

Alternatively, the Trail Blazers are struggling to find their feet, with Dolla Dame throwing up nothing but bricks at the minute.

On current form, the Grizzlies are a real chance completing a snatch and grab in Portland here, they are currently 3-0 against the spread this season and I’ll be backing their perfect run to continue.

PHOENIX SUNS VS SACRAMENTO KINGS
Kings (+8) $1.90

Next up, the Suns are searching to rediscover their 2020/21 form when they welcome the Kings to the Footprint Center in Phoenix.

Despite both clubs sitting on a 1-2 record, it’s been Sacramento who has looked the better of the pair following losses to both Golden State and Utah.

Alternatively, the Suns have suffered heavy defeats against Denver and a shakey Portland unit, while their solitary win came against a disjointed Lakers outfit.

There are a lot of distractions swirling around the Phoenix organisation at the moment in regard to ownership and player contracts, and until they sort their business out off the court, I can see their game suffering on the court.

The Kings are 4-2 against the line across their last six games vs the Suns, while they have covered on nine of their last 10 road games!
