The Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors meet in a highly anticipated second round matchup, with the Grizzlies trying to start their own legacy while the Warriors hope to extend a dynasty. Here’s how both teams stack up when it comes to series odds, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Grizzlies vs. Warriors predictions
Odds to win series: Grizzlies +200, Warriors -260
Regular season record: Grizzlies 56-26, Warriors 53-29
Head-to-head record: Grizzlies 3-1
Memphis has been solid against Golden State in the regular season but this is the playoffs. The Warriors have the experience and mojo when it comes to postseason play, and the Grizzlies had some tough moments against Minnesota. If a few blown leads don’t go Memphis’ way, this could be a different matchup. Even without homecourt advantage, it’s hard to pick against the Warriors.
Pick: Warriors in 6 games
Golden State should be able to win every home game, as the Warriors sported a 31-10 home record. Even with the Grizzlies having talent across the board, their shaky play suggests Golden State will take at least one game in Memphis. The Warriors will take this series at home in Game 6.
