Memphis Looking to End Bad Streak

It’s rare to see the Memphis Grizzlies riding a three-game losing streak, losing eight of their last nine, so they’re looking to end it on Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls.

The sportsbook has the Grizzlies at -7½ to turn their form around, but with the Bulls coming off three straight wins, it could be a close contest.

Let’s check the latest NBA news, stats, injury report, and NBA lines for the Bulls vs Grizzlies. We’ve got plenty of NBA picks for you to consider.

Not Too Late for Bulls

The Bulls are one of the more frustrating teams to follow, but it’s not too late for them to make a winning run and get back to a winning record.

They are currently 26-27 following their 128-104 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, and although they’re not beating the best teams in the NBA, they should have plenty of confidence now.

DeMar DeRozan averages 26 points per game and he’s doing what he needs to do. It’s on his teammates to step up and start knocking down shots, which is possible against a Memphis team coming off three poor losses.

Zach LaVine stepped up with 36 points against Portland on Saturday.

“We were able to get in transition, get some easy baskets,” LaVine said. “Then when they started doubling, it was just picking it out where the rotation was.”

Bettors don’t mind betting on the Bulls, who are 28-23-1 against the spread (ATS). They have covered four of their last five fights, twice as the underdog.

However, the Bulls are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 games they were listed as the underdog between 5-7 points. That’s an impressive record, so they play well when NBA betting markets don’t give them much chance.

Grizzlies Hitting the Wall

With four losses from their last five games, there is reason to panic for Grizzlies‘ fans.

They lost to Portland, Cleveland and Toronto, so it’s not good form and it’s having an effect on NBA odds. They were +6½ underdogs when losing 128-113 to the Cavaliers and only -1½ favorites when losing 106-103 to Toronto.

With a 2-8 ATS record over their last 10 games, they have been tough to bet on. Their lead in the Southwest has shrunk to four games over the Dallas Mavericks and a loss to Chicago wouldn’t bode well.

When the Grizzlies are favored between 5-7 points, they are 4-5 ATS. It’s not an excellent record, especially for a team of this quality. However, they are 21-5 at home and that can’t be ignored.

Playing at FedEx Forum is a clear advantage and they’ll be keen to give their home fans something to cheer about after consecutive losses.

Bulls vs Grizzlies Picks and Prediction

Memphis isn’t playing well enough to confidently back them and give away 7½ points. Therefore, we’re locking in the Bulls, who are playing with more confidence.

If DeRozan and LaVine can combine well, they could have too much scoring power for Ja Morant and the Grizzlies.

Over 233 is worth including in NBA parlays as we expect a high-scoring effort.

Memphis is listed at -325 in our Vegas NBA lines. This means that if you wager $100 on the Grizzlies, there’s a chance to win $31. Chicago is +265, offering a chance to win $265 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Memphis a 76.47% chance to win, with the Bulls at 27.40%.
