The Nuggets bounced back with a win on Saturday night against the Rockets. They are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, but the Grizzlies are looking to knock them off on Monday night.
Let’s take a deep dive into the different markets out there for Colorado sports bettors in our Nuggets vs. Grizzlies betting preview, complete with the best odds, picks, and predictions.
Nuggets vs. Grizzlies Betting Preview
The Nuggets have been on fire since the All-Star break and they have firmly cemented themselves as a top-four team in the Western Conference. Nikola Jokic continues to add to his MVP resumé with each game and his supporting cast has picked up the slack since Jamal Murray’s injury.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies are fighting for a playoff spot after finishing ninth in the Western Conference last season. Memphis is sitting in eighth place right now, but the play-in teams are all bunched up. Every game counts.

Bets We Like With A Nuggets Win
Nikola Jokic Over 19.5 Rebounds+Assists (-122)
We are going away from Nikola Jokic’s points here, but we feel like it’s the right move given the changing complexion of this roster. Michael Porter Jr. is taking a leap right before our very eyes. He scored a career-high 39 points in Saturday’s win over the Rockets. We expect Jokic to look for him early and often against the Grizzlies.
If that’s the case, look for Jokic to focus on facilitating and cleaning up the glass. He’s always a threat to go for a triple-double as well (he’s listed at +185 to record a triple-double). If he reaches double figures in rebounds and assists, he will obviously hit the over on this prop.

Bets We Like With A Grizzlies Win
Grizzlies Fourth Quarter Moneyline (+100)
The Grizzlies are a young team that has struggled to close out games this year, but each opportunity gives them a little more experience. It’s only a matter of time before they put the pieces together.
Lately, when the Nuggets lose it’s because of a second-half or fourth-quarter collapse. Denver has been outscored by 55 points in the second half in its last three losses. Win or lose, we like the Grizzlies to win the fourth quarter at even money.

Nuggets vs. Grizzlies Prediction, Pick
With the spread at a reasonable -4, the Nuggets are the safe pick in this game. They have been phenomenal at home as of late and they are starting to pick up steam at the right time. Jokic has put the team on his back at times this year, but Michael Porter Jr. is taking a massive step forward in his development as well. Take the Nuggets laying the points against the Grizzlies.
Pick: Nuggets -4
