Will Memphis and San Antonio hit the over?

The Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs will battle it out on Wednesday in hopes of getting a chance at a play-in game for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. San Antonio won its first matchup against Memphis this year but has gotten blown out in its last two meetings with the Grizzlies. Can the Spurs turn things around? Let’s take a look at the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of tip-off.

Spurs vs. Grizzlies, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Grizzlies -4

Memphis has won its last two games against San Antonio by an average of 24 points. The Spurs’ condition has only gotten worse since the season started. Losing LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick White has lowered their ceiling on offense, but the Grizzlies have gotten better by incorporating Jaren Jackson. Memphis’s ideal starting five is intact and the Grizzlies have won five of their last six games.

Player Prop: Keldon Jonson O1.5 assists (+105)

Johnson isn’t a star playmaker by any means, but this line is too juicy to not take advantage. He’s notched multiple assists in six of his 10 games in May and nearly half of the games he’s played in this year. If he gets a dime early you can relax for most of the game as you wait for him to get a second. He’s averaging 2.3 assists per game against Memphis and has tallied at least three dimes in two of his three matchups against the Grizzlies.
