Memphis Grizzlies at New Orleans Pelicans Betting Preview – Dec 26, 2023

Miami Heat at Boston Celtics NBA Playoffs Betting Preview

Tuesday in the National Basketball Association will feature the Memphis Grizzlies on the road at the New Orleans Pelicans. This is a rematch of a game last week where the Grizzlies won on the road at New Orleans. The Memphis Grizzlies have won three straight games, and are 9-19 on the season. The Grizzlies are 13th in the Western Conference, but have won just 2 out of 13 games on the road this season.

For the Pelicans, they are coming off a loss, which dropped them to 17-13 on the season. The Pelicans are 7th in the West. New Orleans is 9-6 at home this season. The New Orleans Pelicans are -4.5 at home over the Grizzlies in this game. The total is at 229.5.

Pelicans Looking to Pick up Win

The New Orleans Pelicans have played in 30 games this season, and the biggest surprise has been Brandon Ingram playing in 27 of those 30 games. Ingram has been known for injuries, but has shaken that a bit this season. He leads the team with 23.1 points per game. Second is Zion Williamson, with 22.3 per game.

Jonas Valanciunas is the lone Pelicans starter to play all 30 games this season. The big man is scoring 14.7 points per game and ripping down just under 10 rebounds per game. The Pelicans offense is scoring 115.7 points per game. In a recent win over Cleveland, Trey Murphy III scored 28 points in the game.

The Pelicans are playing their second of five straight at home. After this game, the Pelicans will take on the Jazz, Lakers and Nets before playing at Minnesota on January 3rd.

Morant Dominant for Memphis

Ja Morant has come back since his 25 game suspension and been terrific. THe Grizzlies have won all three games since his return. In the recent win over the Hawks, Morant scored 30 points. He joins Desmond Bane, who leads the team with 25.1 points per game. Bane also leads with 5.2 assists per game.

The Grizzlies are scoring 107 points per game, but in their three games since Morant has returned, they are scoring 118.5 points per game. The Grizzlies are enjoying a big season from their big man Jaren Jackson Jr. He is scoring 21.4 points per game, and ripping down 5.6 assists per game.

Memphis will play two more on the road after this before heading back home. THe Grizzlies are at the Nuggets and Clippers, before a New Years Eve  affair against the Kings.

Grizzlies Top Pelicans Again

The Pelicans are favorites again in this game, and we are not sure the oddsmakers are right here. The Grizzlies won the meeting last week, and this is just a new team. Ja Morant has done great things since his return.  We expect that to continue in this game. Our final betting prediction for this game is the Memphis Grizzlies +4.5 on the road at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your NBA Bets!
