Grizzlies vs Jazz Predictions
27 March 2021
Grizzlies vs Jazz is a Western Conference matchup between two higher level teams. Whilie both teams are quality, they have different aspirations for the close of 2021, yet both are well inside the playoff race.
The Grizzlies are a team still involved in the playoff race in the Western Conference and are within reach of the final seed. A strong close to the season will be necessary if they are to find themselves inside the playoff cutoff. The Jazz have no such worries as they are highly likely to remain the top seed in the Western Conference. The Jazz are on the short list of true title contenders.
Grizzlies vs Jazz has been played nearly 100 times, with the split going significantly to the Jazz side. Recent matchups are quite similar to that of the long term history. The Jazz have been the team coming out on top more often, and at a quite similar rate. History does give us a slight lean in this matchup, but current rosters and trends remain much more important factors.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Utah Jazz Betting Pick
Saturday Night at 9:00PM EST at the Vivint Arena
Why bet the Jazz?
✅ Jazz remain a force at home: The monstrous 18-2 home record the Jazz bring to the table does not quite do them justice. They are an absolute juggernaut on their home floor, and no other team in the league comes very close. The Jazz have accomplished a feat I do not recall seeing at any other point in decades of NBA analysis. They are both the most efficient offensive and most efficient defensive team in the league on their home floor. This translates to raw output as well, as they allow the fewest points per game in the league. Despite the low output from their opponents, the Jazz have no trouble scoring. They remain top six in gross points scored as well. Add all of this up and we get a +13.5 average point differential per game. For context, that figure is 4.5 points per game better than the second best team. Additonally, only eight teams are within nine points per game of that figure!! Truly mind blowing dominance.
✅ Grizz wilt against the elite: While the Grizzlies have been a solid road team overall, they have not yet been forced to play many difficult road games. They have not yet had to play at either of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference and have had to play just two games at any of the top three teams in the Western Conference. Those two games ended poorly for them, losing both and by an average margin of 12 points per game. They did play the Jazz competitively just last night, but Utah still walked away with the win
Betting Pick: Jazz -10.5

Over/Under wagers on this Grizzlies vs Jazz contest would be betting over or under 226.5 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Utah Jazz Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread completely out of play in terms of the wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game using the best Memphis Jazz vs Utah Grizzlies Money Linepredictions, a Money Line wager is worth considering. This will allow you to pick the winner while avoiding the pesky point spread.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Jazz -9.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, the Grizzlies can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Grizzlies can be wagered on to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -455 on the Jazz and expect to get about +350 on the Grizzlies.
With the all time series being played to a large edge on the Jazz side, history might slightly help as a determining factor on a money line wager in this instance. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The current season’s trends side with the Utah Jazz while recent history also favors the Jazz.
All of the above are helpful indicators and should be considered in terms of a betting selection, but history should not be weighted too heavily.

Jazz vs Grizzlies Odds
The NBA has the most fluid odds of all the major sports in the United States. We often see a slow release of odds. Additionally against the spread, over/under and money line odds all fluctuate, often rapidly throughout a given day leading up to tipoff. The Jazz vs Grizzlies regular season matchup won’t draw a massive betting market from the general public, so just a handful of large wagers could move the lines significantly in one direction or the other.
Live Streaming Grizzlies vs Jazz
We are currently lacking sports books in the United States that offer streaming of NBA games. This will certainly change in the future, but for now we are still required to turn to paid streaming services that might have the game you are looking for.
