- Read on for a two-leg same game parlay for Grizzlies vs Lakers.
Grizzlies vs. Lakers Odds
The Los Angeles Lakers host the Memphis Grizzlies up 2-1 in their best-of-seven series. On Saturday night, the Lakers got out to a blistering start holding the Grizzlies to just nine points in the first quarter. Game 3 had it all, including a Dillion Brooks ejection on a groin shot to LeBron James, which will not lead to a suspension.
The Grizzlies never led at any point in the game and the Lakers were able to build up a lead as high as 29-points. Although the Grizzlies were able to claw back into it and cut the deficit late, it was a comfortable Lakers victory 111-101.
This game should be fun, but make sure to monitor the injury report for L.A. and Memphis closer to tip — LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Dennis Schroder are all probable and Ja Morant is not listed despite his hand injury. Here’s my same game parlay for Grizzlies vs Lakers Game 4.
NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+195)
- Memphis Grizzlies Team Total Over 108.5 (-105)
- Jaren Jackson Jr. Over 19.5 Points (-130)
Memphis Grizzlies Team Total Over 108.5 (-105)
The Grizzlies found their groove (eventually) in the second half, and scored 64 points, but the first was a calamaty. We’ve seen a tale of two different halves from the Grizzlies throughout this entire series thus far and a quick start is imperative to get some momentum back and avoid the same kind of first quarter disaster. This could help set them up well to go over their team total and continue their strong second half play.
Looking into players getting out to quick starts, Morant leads the Grizzlies in first half points in the regular season at 12.9 on 46.8% shooting. Expect him to get players like Jaren Jackson Jr. much more involved early on in getting some easy baskets.
In the regular season they led the Association in paint points per game at 58. If they stick to what they do best; getting in the paint they will be efficient. They failed to top this number in back-to-back games, but I think the Grizzlies can get there in Game 4.
Jaren Jackson Jr. Over 19.5 Points (-130)
Jackson Jr. has put up some good numbers against the Lakers throughout his career with six games of 20 or more points.
The opening two games are great indicators of what Jackson Jr. can do when he’s on his game: shoot the ball well and take advantage of good looks. Game 1 saw him so much more involved logging 31 points on 13-of-21 shooting.
With Morant dealing with his lingering hand issue and coming off a monster Game 3 performance, look for the Lakers to devise a game plan to limit his efficiency. What’s underrated in Morant’s game is his playmaking ability and I expect that on full display getting his teammates more confident and much more involved.
If Jackson Jr. can find his attempts somewhere closer to the 21 he took in Game 1, this bet looks primed to go over the set total of 19.5.
