Dallas Mavericks vs Memphis Grizzlies 11/09/2019 – The Dallas Mavericks (5-3) will attempt to bounce back from a surprising 106-102 loss to the New York Knicks on Friday, as Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis visit the FedEx Forum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies (2-6). The Mavericks will be coming in -4.5 NBA winning margin favorites, but no one should count out this Grizzlies team that pulled off a couple of upset win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Brooklyn Nets this season.

Dallas Mavericks Betting
It wasn’t the New York Knicks the Mavericks thought they would face. With Kristaps Porzingis playing his former team for the first time since last year’s trade, the Knickerbockers stayed within striking distance and pounded-and-grounded the Mavericks late to take a morale-boosting win. Luka Doncic is blaming himself for the loss, saying he could have made a better decision in the winding seconds of the game. The Mavs shot 41 percent from the field and got outrebounded, 56-47.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (26.7 PPG, 9.9 RPG, 9.1 APG), Kristaps Porzingis (19.0 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 2.0 APG), J.J. Barea (11.0 PPG, 1.0 RPG, 3.0 APG)
Memphis Grizzlies Betting
It’s clear from the start that the Memphis Grizzlies aren’t playing for a postseason spot. They are playing for the future. After stunning the Wolves 137-121, Memphis fizzled down in their next game against Orlando, 118-86. Still, they are getting a glimpse of Ja Morant’s potential this early, he just needs more consistency. The No.2 overall pick scored 23 against the Rockets and 26 against the T-Wolves before he was held down to 8 points vs. the Magic.
Players to Watch: Ja Morant (20.4 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 5.3 APG), Dillon Brooks (15.1 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 1.7 APG), Jonas Valanciunas (11.4 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 2.3 APG)

Dallas Mavericks vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Picks
The Mavericks and Grizzlies split their last 10 head-to-head meetings, but we all know that Memphis is coming on Saturday night without Marc Gasol and Mike Conley Jr. on their roster. There’s a reason why top online sportsbooks favor the Mavericks to win this game, and it includes a pissed-off Doncic who is ready to drop a big game on the Grizzlies head.
Moneyline: The Mavericks are going to cruise to an easy win over the Grizzlies. And yes, it’s because of another big game from Luka Doncic.
ATS: A 4.5 point handicap won’t prevent the Mavericks from bagging their fourth win against the spread.
TOTALs: This game will go over the NBA over/under totals of 219 points. The Mavericks are averaging 115 points per game, while the Grizzlies aren’t a bad offensive team either at 110 points per contest.
Score Prediction: 120-108 Mavericks
