The Memphis Grizzlies (30-28) play the second game of a two-game set against the Portland Trail Blazers (32-27) Sunday at Moda Center. Tip-off is set for 4 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Grizzlies-Trail Blazers odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Grizzlies nipped the Trail Blazers 130-128 in the front-end of the back-to-back set on Friday night, winning as four-point underdogs as the Over easily connected. Memphis has won three of the past five and has covered six of the previous seven.

The Blazers are on a four-game skid, but they have covered in a respectable three out of the previous five. Portland has allowed 106 or more points in each of the past seven outings.

Grizzlies at Trail Blazers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Trail Blazers 124, Grizzlies 121

Money line (ML)

The TRAIL BLAZERS (-175) are a little expensive on the money line, but they’re worth the play if you don’t want to worry about the spread.

The front end was a two-point win for the Grizzlies (+145), and this one should be close as well. In fact, three of the past six for Memphis have been one- or two-point games.

Against the spread (ATS)

The GRIZZLIES +4 (-105) is worth playing very, very lightly. They won the front end by two. I expect this one to be a tight contest like Friday.

The guys from Grind City have covered in six of the previous seven, and they are the recommended side here.

Memphis is also 7-0 ATS in the past seven as a dog and 8-2 ATS across the past 10 on the road.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 234.5 (-110) looks like an astronomical number, but we did have a total of 258 points in the first meeting.

The Over is 5-1 in the past six for Memphis and 5-0 in the past five as an underdog. The Over is also 19-7 across the past 26 road outings for the Grizz.

While the Under is 7-3 in Portland’s past 10 in Rip City, the Over is 7-3 in their past 10 at home against teams with a winning road mark.
