On Monday, the Memphis Grizzlies had had enough and fired head coach David Fizdale and in the process promoted J.B Bikerstaff to the interim head coach role. It is hoped the change at the top will halt an eight-game losing streak but as Memphis hit the road, the San Antonio Spurs will be rubbing their hands. The Spurs are a settled side who are ever improving the NBA odds with consistent performances. All eyes will be on how the Grizzlies cope after Fizdale’s departure but a trip to San Antonio is daunting prospect for anyone, let alone a side likely to make is nine defeats in a row.

Memphis need time to gather their thoughts and fully prepare for a tough winter ahead and this game against a side still harbouring outside hopes of clinching the conference title just comes to soon.

With thirteen wins to the Grizzlies seven, it is not hard to see why backing the Spurs for the win is the only viable way to go in this one. As already mentioned, Memphis are currently on an eight losing run which has seen their play-off hopes quickly evaporating. By contrast, the Spurs are third in the conference but perhaps more importantly trailing the Rockets in the all important Southwest division. Victory is a must for Gregg Popovich’s men as they cannot afford to lose touch with Houston. Especially when coming up against a side they will expect to walk all over in a confidence shot Memphis. Betway’s latest NBA odds for this game appealed as although quite long, they offered one of the best prices we came along for the outright win. Added to an accumulator and suddenly the Spurs to win looks like a very profitable opportunity indeed.
The best way to get value out of this game is in the handicap market and with 40 handicap and over/under bets on offer in this game, Unibet have the largest selection to choose from. We go with -6.5 because it is quite conservative but also enhances your chances of winnign whilst also producing solid odds. The bolder can go higher but we want you to win with as little risk as possible. The reason -6.5 for the Spurs is so good is that in both teams last ten games, the Spurs have averaged seven points per game more than their opponents (San Antonio 103, Grizzlies 96). But there is more to it than just that. When the two sides met in last Aprils NBA Playoff, the Spurs won it by seven points and based a seven point win over the Mavericks and a twenty point win over the Hornets, San Antonio seem pretty reliable on winning by seven or more points.
