Memphis is riding into Wednesday on its longest losing streak of the season. Can the Grizz right the ship as a road underdog in San Francisco? Read on for our Grizzlies vs. Warriors NBA picks based on the best NBA odds.
The Grizzlies (31-16) have lost three games in a row for the first time all season, most recently enduring a 33-point defeat to the Kings in which Memphis scored its lowest point total since December 20.
The Warriors (23-24) dropped a tough one at home to Brooklyn and have lost six of their last 10 coming into Wednesday. But can Golden State find its footing against a Memphis team that has struggled so significantly on the road this season?

Grizzlies vs. Warriors Pick
Warriors -3.5 vs. Grizzlies (-110 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Memphis has the worst mark in the NBA this season in covering the spread as an underdog (2-5 ATS) but it’s an even more jarring trend when you isolate it to road games. The Grizzlies are the only team in the league without a cover as a road underdog, going 0-5 ATS in those circumstances this season.
Under normal circumstances, I’d make the case for the Grizzlies in this spot by making the argument that the season-long trend as road dogs shouldn’t matter because Memphis shouldn’t be an underdog in this matchup. But because of the absence of Steven Adams, I think the line is pretty accurate.
Memphis looked completely lost without the big man on Monday as Sacramento forwards Keegan Murray and Harrison Barnes had big scoring nights while Domanta Sabonis carved up the Memphis defense for 11 assists and a triple-double. The Grizzlies lost 133-100, scoring just 10 fourth-quarter points.
Though Memphis is bound to make adjustments after that thrashing, its road woes (11-13 outright and 8-15-1 ATS) make it difficult to trust an immediate bounce-back effort against a team that is so solid at home. Golden State fumbled away its last game late against Brooklyn and should emerge from that experience looking to boost its 14-8-1 ATS home record on Wednesday.
Grizzlies vs. Warriors Best Odds
|Warriors -3.5||Warriors -3.5||Warriors -3.5||Warriors -3.5||Warriors -3.5|
As of this writing, the board is completely identical as the Warriors are 3.5-point favorites with standard -110 odds across our recommended sportsbooks. For a moneyline bet on Golden State, the -155 odds at Caesars are your best bet on the board.
If the line shrinks back to its opening number of -2.5, and therefore within a single possession, this recommendation would balloon to a five-star recommendation.
