The Memphis Grizzlies meet the Golden State Warriors in a Western Conference showdown in the Association on Wednesday night.

Both teams come in struggling a bit.

The Grizzlies have lost five of their last six, while the Warriors have fallen short in four of their last six.

So, which team can bounce back in the Bay Area? Let's dive into the Grizzlies vs. Warriors odds and make a pick and prediction for Wednesday's NBA game.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies have a full roster on the injury list. Seriously, there are 11 players listed.

You have to give some credit to the remaining Memphis players. Led by head coach Taylor Jenkins and two star players in Jaren Jackson Jr. and Desmond Bane, this team has made an effort to play hard and be available when it can.

While the Grizzlies haven't won many games, they played spoiler to a lot of bets against them.

Memphis' G League affiliate is called the Memphis Hustle, and considering the players who are active and the grit of the team, it's kind of perfect symbolism.

Golden State Warriors

The narrative surrounding the Warriors is that they need to play with urgency.

The truth behind that is they're all but locked into a play-in tournament spot and more than likely the 9/10 must-win-twice part of it.

It's going to be a tough climb for a team that has always been dangerous but hasn't consistently pieced it together this season. The Warriors did recently return Steph Curry and Chris Paul, both of whom are so essential to their two on-court units.

Add in the dominant home-court advantage and the history between these teams, and I expect the Warriors to make sure they don't drop this one.

Grizzlies vs Warriors

Betting Pick & Prediction

On both sides of the coin, this is not a Warriors team I want to back at a near double-digit spread, nor a Grizzlies team I want to fade at such a large number.

But I do feel the reflective moneyline is worth it here and should close closer between -550 and -600. It's currently available at Caesars at -480, which is certainly worth snagging.

When playing a steep favorite on the moneyline, I encourage people to not feel the need to stack it into a parlay or add on to make it a same-game parlay to lower the vig.

Just play the ML straight at the -480 price for one unit and bring home a small return.

Pick: Warriors ML -480 (One Unit to Win 0.21 Units)
