Cleveland looks to keep rolling Thursday when it travels to face Memphis, and we're offering our top Cavaliers vs. Grizzlies player props based on the best NBA odds.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are finally healthy entering February, and they've responded by winning nine of their last 10 games to climb up the Eastern Conference standings. They're favored to stay rolling on Thursday against the reeling Memphis Grizzlies.
Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell is in the midst of arguably the best season of his career, and he's teamed up with fellow stars Evan Mobley and Darius Garland to guide Cleveland to a 29-16 record and the fourth spot in the East entering Thursday. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have stumbled to an 18-29 start amid injuries to key players.
The Cavaliers should take care of business in this one, but we're more interested in who will shine in this potentially lopsided affair.
To accompany our Lakers vs. Celtics NBA player props and 76ers vs. Jazz NBA player props, here are our best Cavaliers vs. Grizzlies NBA player props and NBA picks (odds via our best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

- Jaren Jackson Under 28.5 points + assists (-104 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐

Cavaliers vs. Grizzlies props
Vince Williams Under 24.5 points + rebounds + assists (-110 via BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐
Grizzlies big man Vince Williams missed the team's last game with a knee injury, but he's set to return on Thursday. Santi Aldama started in Williams' place, recording 16 points, seven rebounds, and two assists - good enough to clear this total. However, Williams doesn't appear likely to give Memphis that level of production.
Williams is projected to finish with 23.5 combined points, rebounds, and assists against the Cavaliers, according to NumberFire. Those numbers are expected to come from a relatively full 35-minute workload, too, so his results could be even worse if this contest becomes a blowout and he's limited in the second half.
When we run that projection against BetMGM's -110 odds on Under 24.5 PRA, we're getting nearly 13% positive expected value on this bet.
The Under has been getting plenty of action at Pinnacle, which features one of the most respected trading teams in the sports betting industry. It opened at -115 and has already moved to -141 midway through Thursday.
You'll want to get in on this number before our best sports betting sites catch up with the sharp action.
Jaren Jackson Under 28.5 points + assists (-104 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐
This one is a bit daunting since Jaren Jackson is more or less all the Grizzlies have at this point. However, he's been wildly inefficient as a scorer since being forced to carry that load, which is reflected in his projections.
Jackson has shot 43 of 108 from the field (just under a 40% field-goal percentage) across his last five games. He's not exactly being an effective distributor to offset that, either.
The forward is projected to combine for 26.9 points and assists on Thursday. There's some value on the Under for his points and PRA props, too, but this is the best of the trio.
We're getting exactly 18% +EV on this bet based on that projection and FanDuel's -104 odds on the Under. Comparatively, our other best sports betting apps that offer this market have all listed the total at 27.5, with the Under more heavily juiced.
These rogue lines don't last long, so use our exclusive FanDuel promo code and bet this before it's too late.
If you're a Grizzlies fan and want to back your only remaining star player, be sure to use our exclusive Caesars promo code: SBRBONUS1000 to get Jackson to score 25-plus points and record eight-plus rebounds at +275! Ontario is excluded from this offer.
Donovan Mitchell Under 27.5 points (-105 via BetRivers) ⭐⭐⭐
This is simply one of those instances when the line is too high for the projected game script. The Cavaliers are 8-point favorites, and they're playing the second game of a back-to-back set, so the starters could get fewer minutes.
Mitchell is projected to score 26.7 points a night after exploding for 45 against the Detroit Pistons. Based on that projection, we're getting nearly 12% +EV on this bet. Unfortunately, we were a bit too late on this one, as most of our best sportsbooks were offering Mitchell's points total at 28.5 to start the day.
However, Under 27.5 at these -105 odds via BetRivers is still a strong bet. Any one of these three picks could justifiably be considered a four-star bet, but I'm keeping them each at three stars because there's some uncertainty surrounding who's actually going to play for the Grizzlies.
