Memphis Grizzlies Betting Outlook

  • Championship Odds: +9000
  • Conference Odds: +4000
  • Division Odds: +450

There is some confidence with the Memphis Grizzlies, but it appears as though they’re rebuilding for the future.

They let go of a lot of players, and the only notable signing was Steven Adams, who isn’t the most impactful player.

We’re surprised the NBA Championship odds aren’t much higher, and the Western Conference odds of +4000 is on the short side, especially given the strength of the conference.

Memphis’ best chance is in the Southwest Division against Dallas, New Orleans, San Antonio and Houston. However, it’s a competitive group, so the likes of Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks will need to play well.

Grizzlies 2021-22 Predictions

  • Regular Season Record: 41-41
  • Conference Standing: 9th
  • Division Standing: 3rd

Memphis Grizzlies Team Leaders

Adams might not be the most talented center, but he should have a positive impact.

His leadership should help the Grizzlies, who are lacking natural leaders. Morant is the most talented player on the court, and the offense runs through him, but he’s still learning how to lead from the front.

We also look at Dillion Brooks and Tyus Jones as leaders. They’re 25 years old, but they have enough experience to coach the numerous youngsters throughout the year.

Keeping a handle on the likes of Ziaire Williams, Xavier Tillman Sr, Jarrett Culver and Santi Aldama won’t be easy, so Memphis needs its experienced players to provide some substance.

Last Season

Posting a winning record was a good result for the Grizzlies, who went 38-34 before losing to the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs.

They got through to the playoffs with a play-in tournament win over Golden State, after finishing eighth in the regular season.

A lot has changed since last season, including the departure of three of their top players. Grayson Allen, Marc Gasol and most importantly Jonas Valanciunas are no longer on the team, which is a big blow.

Valanciunas is a better scoring threat than Adams, and he brings more physicality. His trade to division rival New Orleans could come back to hurt the Grizzlies.

There were some positives, including finishing only four games behind the Mavericks. Rookie Desmond Bane was awarded NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors, so he should be ready to fire with a season under his belt.

Head Coach

Taylor Jenkins is in his third year as head coach for the Grizzlies after going 72-73.

Despite the losing record, last season was an improvement on his first year. Making the playoffs was a positive, and finishing second in the Southwest Division was a step in the right direction.

The 37-year-old was an assistant for Atlanta and the Bucks before signing with the Grizzlies. Despite not playing college basketball, he has made his way up the coaching ranks, and his experience making the playoffs in four consecutive appearances for the Hawks helps.

With a degree in psychology, Jenkins has a different outlook from many coaches. He should work well with the young talent of the Grizzlies.
