Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Betting Odds, Picks and Analysis (Wednesday, April 14, 2021)

Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Betting Odds, Picks

At the beginning of the season, the Mavericks stunned gamblers.  Dallas was one of the biggest money losers on the board.  Fortunately, the Mavericks turned things around to get into playoff position.  Now, Dallas is one of the hottest brands in NBA betting.  Memphis is one of the most anonymous teams in the Association.  Many casual gamblers are unfamiliar with the Grizzlies’ mere existence.  Naturally, that helps Memphis make money like few other teams on the NBA board.   At the 2020 Orlando Bubble, the Grizzlies blew a playoff spot.  This year they aim to finish with a postseason berth.

Dallas Mavericks at Memphis Grizzlies CashBet Wagering Analysis

Admittedly the Mavericks are the far bigger sportsbook brand.  Memphis has no public appeal compared to Dallas.  As a result, the Mavericks are going to draw the majority of betting activity for this game.  Squares fell in love with Luka Doncic and Dallas last summer at the Bubble.  And the Mavericks command notice on the NBA marquee.  Memphis draws its value from being a pesky team that gets no public love.  Sharps love the Grizzlies for that very reason.  Wiseguys love to fade the public.  And there is no better opportunity to do that than this game.

Dallas Digs Out of Massive Early Season Hole

Dallas is on fire with the betting on NBA board.  To illustrate, the Mavericks have covered six of their last seven games.  And six of those games went under the total.  Dallas is 29-22 straight up, 26-25 against the odds, and 20-31 under the total.  To summarize, the Mavericks rank 19th for scoring offense and eighth for points allowed.  Following that terrible start to the season, Dallas has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround.

Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks with 28.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game.  Doncic has scored 21 or more points in 13 of his last 14 games.  And then Kristaps Porzingis adds 20.4 points and 9.2 rebounds per outing.  Porzingis scored 19 or more points in six of his previous seven games.

Memphis Printing Moonshine Money

Memphis has a pro basketball betting record of 26-24 straight up, 31-19 against the spread, and 25-25 over/under.  NBA metrics show the Grizzlies 14th for scoring offense and 14th for points allowed.  Memphis has failed to pay in only one of their last seven games.  So too, have three of the Grizzlies’ previous four games gone over the total.  Memphis leads San Antonio by two games for the final playoff spot in the West.

First among Memphis scorers is Ja Morant, with 19 points and 7.4 assists per game.  Jonas Valanciunas adds 16.4 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.

Overall, the Mavericks are 16-12 against the spread on the road.  Dallas has covered five of their last eight basketball betting division matchups.  On the road, the Mavericks are 11-17 under the total.  While in division matchups, the Mavericks are 3-5 under the line.

Memphis is 4-5 against the spread in division matchups. And then, in-home court games, the Grizzlies are 16-10 vs. the odds.  Memphis is 9-17 under the total at home.  But the Grizzlies are 6-3 over the number in divisional matchups.

Dallas has covered four of their last five games against the Grizzlies.  Accordingly, four of the previous six matchups in this series cleared the total.  So too have the Mavericks paid in four of their last six visits to Memphis.  This series went over the total in its previous two games at FedEx Forum.
