The Utah Jazz will host the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies in a first-round playoff game on Sunday. Utah was banged up down the stretch in the regular season but has gotten healthy ahead of its matchup with a Memphis squad that’s running hot after a play-in victory over the Golden State Warriors. Let’s go over the best betting options on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Grizzlies vs. Jazz, 9:30 p.m. ET, TNT

Pick ATS: Jazz -8.5

Some people might have forgotten how good Utah is when it’s completely healthy, and its best starting lineup should be back in action against Memphis. Donovan Mitchell is set to return for the first time since April 16 and will pair with Mike Conley in the backcourt. Utah was heavily favored in games for most of the season, but only the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks have covered the spread more than them this year. The Jazz covered a league-high 23 times at home and are 6-0 straight up in their last six games against the Grizzlies.

Player Prop: Dillon Brooks O2.5 assists (+145)

Brooks is a gunner by nature but has picked up his playmaking lately. He’s racked up three or more assists in his last four games. Brooks has tallied at least three dimes in four of the nine games he’s played in May. The Jazz will likely make things hard on Brooks, but Memphis’s offense is more wide open than it was during the regular season with Jaren Jackson back in the rotation.
