2013 NBA Playoffs Betting – Memphis Grizzlies Get back on Track Game 2 against Clippers?


The Memphis Grizzlies were supposed to roar to the occasion and prove themselves a fierce and worthy opponent on Saturday against the LA Clippers in Game 1 of their NBA playoff Betting battle. But any bettor following the current season or sportsbook betting fan familiar with Memphis game knows the Grizzlies seemed to lie down, take it, and whimper.

2013 NBA Playoffs BettingThe Clippers declawed the Grizzles 112-91 on Saturday, and tonight Memphis will try to even the score against LA before heading back to Memphis for the next two games. The last thing the Grizzlies want to do is head home down 2-0, and possibly lose the series on home court. Needless to say, this kind of battle is what sports betting was made for.

The Clippers netted an impressive 46 points in the paint by attacking the rim in a way that could only be described as hardwood warfare. Game 2 will likely see the Grizzlies try to break down this strategy, so L.A will need to look for other scoring opportunities.

If they’re looking to 3-point their way to a victory, they might need to step things up. L.A managed to turn 37 percent of their 3-point shots into baskets. While not horrible, they’ll need to up their game if they’re blocked in the paint and forced to turn to beyond the arc. And that’s a strategy the Grizzlies will likely turn to. The Clippers rank 15th in 3-point conversion rates at 35.8.

And here’s another reason LA shouldn’t enter the game too cocky. The Grizzlies have a history of being strong enough to cut off passing lanes pretty well. Memphis will likely strengthen their perimeter defense and force LA to move the ball out of the paint.

Betting enthusiasts already know that Game 2 will likely be all about defense. And defense against Chris Paul, specifically. In Game 1, he completely through the Grizzlies game off balance, shifting proverbial gears after virtually every single possession. Paul finished the game with 23 points, seven assist, and two steals.

Game Odds:
Memphis Grizzlies: +6 -110, ML +225
Los Angeles Clippers: -6 -110, ML -265
Totals: o/u 180, -110
