We go over some of the best betting options for the NBA first round 2021 NBA playoff matchup between the Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

NBA: Playoffs-Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzlies Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

The Memphis Grizzlies will look to even their series at home against the Utah Jazz in Game 4 on Monday, May 31st at 9:30 p.m. ET. After losing the opening game of the series, the top-seeded Jazz won each of the last two games to take a 2-1 series lead. Donovan Mitchell led Utah to a 121-111 victory on Saturday night in Memphis to give the Jazz the advantage heading into the fourth game of the best-of-seven series.

The only player featured on the injury report for either team is Grizzlies’ reserve small forward Sean McDermott, who has not appeared in a game since April 30th.

Pick ATS: Jazz -5.5

Both teams fared very well this season against the spread and were among the most profitable teams in the sport during the regular season. If Memphis was going to get the Jazz on their home floor, they probably needed to do it on Saturday night when the series was still even. Utah entered the playoffs with the best record in the NBA and is used to rattling off several victories in a row. The Jazz will show Memphis why they are the No. 1 seed in the West in their matchup on Monday night.

Player Prop: Ja Morant U1.5 3-pointers (-110)

Utah defends the three-point line very well, so it’s going to be difficult for the Grizzlies to heavily rely on knocking down the deep ball consistently on Monday night. Let’s take the under for Ja Morant 3-pointers made. The Jazz allow the second lowest three-point shooting percentage in the NBA, and they also allow opponents to take the third fewest three-point attempts per game. Morant is shooting more 3-pointers on average through three games of this series compared to the regular season, but he is knocking down just 26.7% of long balls in the postseason.
